You just spent a fortune to deck your house out in Thanksgiving décor, but as soon as the holiday weekend ended, it was clear your Thanksgiving decorations were no longer in season. It’s officially Christmas season, which means those bright, foliage-inspired colors that warm up your house for fall are no longer welcome. Avoid spending a fortune at the craft store this winter, and simply recycle your Thanksgiving décor instead. Read on for three creative ideas for transforming any fall party décor into a winter wonderland.
Turn Cranberry Branches Into Winter Trees
The cranberries, whose bright red color illuminated your Thanksgiving meal, can be transformed into silver trees with a little silver spray paint. Just place your silver cranberry branch in a pot of stones and decorate with fake snow and paper snowflakes for a snowy tree centerpiece.
Turn Fall Foliage Into Winter Snowflakes
Use your leftover red, yellow, and orange leaves that represented fall foliage to create wintry hanging decorations that look like snowflakes. Simply spray paint the leaves white, and give them a silver tint for an elegant, winter look.
Turn Gorgeous Gourds Into Snowmen
Use your leftover gourds and pumpkins to make adorable snowmen! Simply paint all of your gourds white and then stack them. Decorate with a carrot nose and black buttons for an adorable outdoor ornament.
