The time following the holiday season can leave people feeling a little out of whack. Celebrations like Hanukkah and New Year’s Eve give us a reason to enjoy the chilly weather or at least provide us with wonderful distractions from it. Once January comes around…we’re just plain old freezing cold all the time. What if winter didn’t have to be so dreary, though? Let these wonderful, wintry paper crafts remind you of the natural beauty that can be found in snow and ice. After you finish decking out your home in snowflakes, help the people you love by sending them pretty cards covered in winter trees and glistening snowy scenes. You can even get the little ones in your life involved with cute, animal-themed winter crafts!
Easy Paper Snowflakes
The awesome thing about paper snowflakes is that they’re super easy to make. You can make dozens of garlands to hang around your home and tons of individual flakes to tape to your windows in just one afternoon. Add glitter or stretched out cotton balls to your paper creations in order to make them even prettier.
Winter Crafts for Kids
Cabin fever is one of the worst parts of wintertime. With crafts like these, though, feeling cooped up will be a thing of the past. Spend some time with your little ones making polar bear and penguin crafts to display on their walls or your refrigerator.
Homemade Greeting Cards
People can be left feeling cold and lonely after the holiday season ends and the chilliest weather of the year sets in. Don’t let your loved ones forget how much you care about them for even a second. Send them a pretty card to remind them that even though winter makes visiting harder, they’re still on your mind and in your heart all day long.
