Paintings/Pictures – Your child’s artwork can totally be utilized as mantel décor. Throw it in a frame and display it proudly. Your kids will love being included in your decorating!
Toys – I collect unique and nerdy toys that absolutely deserved to be displayed. I don’t recommend using your kids’ toys because they will likely try to scale your fireplace to play with them.
Candles – These are another super easy way to add color to your décor. Up your décor personalization with colorful candles that display family photos. The awesome ones in the photos came from Shutterfly and are beautiful. They also smell incredible which makes me one happy momma.
Fabric – You can totally swag some colorful fabric across your mantel and then add your décor pieces on top. This adds additional depth and color to your home instantly.
Bookshelves aren’t just for books! Even if your shelves are packed to the brim with books, like mine, you can add some pops of color. Add some colorful toys or trinkets in front of your books. For some reason our family has an excess of fun banks. These make fantastic decorative pieces.
- Don’t overload your shelves or they will look cluttered. Stick with 2-3 items per shelf grouped in a corner.
This is another fast and easy way to add some color to your winter décor. You can purchase your favorite family photo on a canvas from Shutterfly to display on your wall year-round. You can also make your artwork like this DIY Family Wall Art. Either way, you’ll have some gorgeous, colorful accents for your wall.
