The holidays are over.

The lights are unstrung, the ornaments are packed away, and all the Christmas cookies have been eaten.

And my house looks a little sad.

I need some winter decor and I need it fast!

After a little searching, I’ve found eleven ways to decorate with paper snowflakes all winter long!  The same folded and snipped snowflakes that we all made in elementary school can be transformed into beautiful winter decorations for your home that you’ll be thrilled with until spring.
