My Dollar Tree makeover for winter decor turned out to be quite a transformation! Let me show you how to totally change a $1.25 sled sign into a beautiful wall hanging to decorate your home for winter.
Recently, I was searching for winter decor ideas that could be used for after Christmas decorating. I was on the Kirkland’s Home website and spotted a sleigh wall plaque that I thought was so pretty.
It was still a bit pricey even on sale, so I decided to replicate a similar look but for a much cheaper price. Follow along and see how I made this happen!

MAKING DIY WINTER DECORATIONS
PREP AND PAINT THE SLED
Sand the sled, especially the areas with the glitter.
Paint three coats of white paint covering the front and sides of the sled.
Water down the light brown paint and mix together. I made it into a “soupy” mixture. Use a soft artist paint to paint the sled.
While the paint is still wet, mix white paint with the soupy mix and make white streaks and blend them on the sled.
ATTACH THE GREENERY
Use wire snips to take apart the greenery. Hot glue the pine stems in the center, attach the white stems, then glue pieces of the frosty greenery on the top.
ATTACH THE ORNAMENTS AND RIBBON
Hot glue on small ornaments in the center of the arrangement. Tie on a piece of ribbon for a hanger.
