Woman Crafting a Winter Wreath with Hot Glue GunIt’s always fun to start a do-it-yourself project during wintertime. From unique decor for your Manhattan Beach home to thoughtful handmade gifts, you will never run out of fun winter DIY projects to try. In this list, you will find various winter projects for do-it-yourselfers and crafters young and old to do throughout the season.

1. Winter Wreath

First off is a wreath that would look gorgeous inside or outside your home. What’s more, is that there are many winter wreath designs to choose from. With a few simple materials, you could create a pine-bough wreath adorned with shiny ornaments and ribbons, or perhaps a whimsical wreath of white willows and red cardinals. Colorful winter scarves make fun and interesting wreaths too! For this winter DIY project, your imagination is the limit.

2. Rice Heating Pad

If you want to make something useful and beautiful, you can make some rice heating pads. Just toss these soft flannel pads in a microwave to enjoy hours of warmth to soothe aching muscles and warm cold fingers. It only takes some cloth, rice, and basic sewing skills to make these small gifts for your loved ones.

3. Deer Lawn Ornaments

A beautiful rustic deer lawn ornament will certainly add charm to your yard. This project makes use of rough-hewn logs and branches to make rustic deer for your exterior winter decor. You’ll need cut logs of different sizes, sturdy wooden dowels for legs, and smaller branches for antlers. Just drill holes, assemble, and show off your new outdoor decor!

4. Paper Snowflake Garland

Another great way to bond with the family is over a DIY project of paper snowflakes. Turn those cut-paper snowflakes into a delicate garland to deck your halls or tree. This project comes together with only a few things: paper sheets, scissors, and some string. You can create your own snowflake patterns or find ones you like online, and before you know it, you have a blizzard of paper snowflakes ready to turn your house into a winter wonderland.

5. Pinecone Door Hanger

If you want an easy, pretty, and inexpensive winter decor, look around you for some pinecones. This pinecone door hanger is very easy to make! You will need some wide ribbon, some pinecones, and a hot glue gun for this simple but beautiful project. Once you have glued a pinecone to each ribbon, tie the opposite ends of the ribbons together so they’re ready to hang. This project will look pretty in your entryway or hallway, and can also be gifts for your neighbors.

6. Faux Fur Throw Pillow

Another easy winter DIY project can give your Manhattan Beach home a cozy feel. A faux fur throw pillow can soften any room. Using some faux fur fabric and a pillow form, you can make a cozy accent piece for your bed or chair. Simply measure, cut, and sew the fabric to fit the pillow form, and you’ll have a fun & cozy winter DIY project
