elf-ing a room in paper snowflakes and winter pinecones

snowflakes_hanging_in_kids_roomPerhaps I watched too many holiday movies with lovely snowflake inspiration but in the recent bad weather I decided to decorate the kids’ room for winter. It’s the perfect time to do so because taking down all of the Christmas decor is always a little sad for them. Our boys share a room that’s usually a mix of beachy themed decor but I changed quite a bit to white to convince them it snowed in there. The youngest yellows “Snow!” every time he walks in. Love it. Next year I hope they help me decorate with a few of their own snowflakes and that we’ve started a winter tradition. I handcut each of these flakes with scissors and used both cardstock paper and regular paper. To make them nice and flat I ironed them a bit. I think snowflake cookies would taste divine while reading in here, don’t you?



Usually the mobile has sea life saltdough ornaments, but we needed pinecones for winter.


We made new year’s hats and the animals shared in the fun.
