DIY Winter Art {Monday's Cup of Creativity}

All my Christmas decorations are down, so I've been trying to place touches of Winter around our apartment. I like to put up some non-Christmas Winter decorations before I jump into Valentine's Day. Hearts and flowers just seem out of place to me in January.

Despite the fact that it's 60 degrees and sunny outside, I'm pretending we live in a Winter Wonderland with my DIY art for Winter.

Because there isn't much time between New Year's and Valentine's, I went simple. Fir the larger piece, I used a free printable from Stay At Home Artist. I embellished the snowflakes with some pearl embellishments I already hand, so it was practically free!

 For the black frame, I was really lazy and just pasted a snowy pine cone embellishment from Jolee's Boutique onto blue scrapbook paper.

For the silver frame, I cut out a snowflake embellishment from The Paper Studio and added pearl embellishments that I had on hand.

And that is my DIY art for Winter. I've now done a whole year's worth of DIY art, so I will have to show them all together soon. 

Delightfully Creating,
