Winter is the hardest season to decorate.  Well, other than that big holiday.

After I’ve tucked all the holiday decorations away, I like calm.

It’s more like crammed the bins back in the closet.  🤦🏼‍♀️

Ahhhh, now it’s calm.  Until someone opens that closet!

I add white and wood tones. There’s a printable for that!

Yes, a soft light white and wood tone printable.

Plus, a tutorial for adding snow to a well-worn tree.

Let’s start with making snow.

Shop for supplies

The supplies

Gypsum plaster and mod podge

Small pine tree

Mod Podge

Plaster of Paris

Bowl for mixing (I used a cereal size bowl…not the one I used for breakfast)

Spoon for stirring and dripping


The steps

My pine tree has seen better days.

So my first step is the reshape the tree. Make the branches hang down like they do with heavy snow.

Tree needles

Notice I lost a few pine needles.

The snow mix

My pine tree is 18-inches tall. Adjust your measurements according to the size of your tree.

Winter colors table and plaster

Add 1/3 cup of Mod Podge to the bowl.  Mod Podge is a sealer and glue for decoupage projects. But now it’s used for tons of ways and ideas. Like making snow!  I noticed the photo has whites and wood tones. 

Add 1/3 cup of water and stir.  Stir well making sure the Mod Podge and water are mixed.  The Mod Podge is heavier than water and tends to settle in the bottom of the bowl.

Add a total of 1/3 of the plaster, a heaping spoonful at a time.  Stir well.  There will be lumps.  You’re looking for the consistency of pancake batter.  Add more water if the mix is too thick or more plaster if the mix is too thin. 

Drip or plop over the tree

Printable for Winter Color

Here’s a photo of the printable.

Here are the colors I like to decorate with during the winter months.  I used a larger frame with a mat for an 8 by 10 print.  Perfect size.
