Create your own winter wonderland

 
The holiday decorations have been packed up and returned to the attic. The tree is on the curb. But the weather outside? Well, for a lot of girls, it’s not exactly frightful.

 

If you’re yearning for a winter wonderland of your very own, you don’t have to be content with dreams of Aspen or the Nor’easter dumping snow on New York. Create your own icicle-laden paradise with some decorations that’ll transform your not-so-frosty home into an ice queen’s palace. Better bundle up!

 

Flurries on the forecast

There’s nothing more dreamlike than watching huge snowflakes float to the ground. Craft some of your own and string them from the ceiling using thread or fishing line. You can also tape ‘em up in the windows. Cover them with glitter and watch them shimmer as day turns to night.

 

Deck the halls

OK, OK, the time for Christmas carols has passed. But winter is all about a silver and white landscape, and what could make it glitter more than an array of candles? Grab some pillar candles and votives of all different sizes. Choose neutral silvers, whites and beiges to blend in with your wonderland. Drape bookcases in silver or white scarves, or grab some felt or muslin from a crafts store. Glue on some glitter and arrange with care. When you light up your candles, your room will dazzle!

 

Build Frosty and friends

Never made a snowman before? Well now’s your chance! This kit comes with everything you need to build your own fabled snowman and his wintry habitat.

Let it snow!

If you’ve never seen real snow, then the fake stuff is the next best thing, right? While cotton balls will do, they look more like spider webs than fluffy snow banks. Grab a jar of this just-add-water powder and get your shovel ready, girl!
