After the holiday celebrations are over, taking down the Christmas decorations can seem like a huge chore and be a bit depressing. However, you don’t need to put everything away immediately! Your Christmas decorations can double as winter décor with just a few tweaks. To make changing out your Christmas décor easier, here are some ways you can retain some holiday décor for a winter-themed home.
Keep the magical look with string lights
You can’t go wrong with string lights! I take down my Christmas trees right after New Year’s, but I often keep the string lights on the mantel until the end of January or even Valentine’s Day at my husband’s request. String lights not only brighten your décor, but also create a simple yet magical winter look!
Retain plaid pieces for warmth
Other Christmas decorations you can keep for the rest of winter are your plaid pieces. Plaid items look and feel warm, making them the perfect accessories for winter-themed décor.
Maintain freshness with winter wreaths
Wreaths are not just for Christmas decorations! Wreaths can keep your décor looking fresh for the rest of winter with their evergreen leaves and red winter berries. You can also perk up your winter wreath with a burlap or plaid ribbon and a couple of red bells for a complete ensemble.
Make red berries work
Another Christmas decoration that you can carry over until the end of winter are winter berries. They add color to your décor and give depth to the room’s landscape. And, if you pair them up with pine cones, you’ll get a perky and wintry design to stave off the winter blues.
