Let It Snow Wreath

An excessively decorated white wreath (crystals, silver, rhinestones) with a let it snow sign, hanging from a bronze wreath hanger on a dark brown door.


This beautiful, blingy let it snow wreath is so easy to make! If you are looking for a fun and simple winter craft project to hang on your front door or over your fireplace mantel, you will want to make this sparkly winter wreath.

Let It Snow Wreath

The primary colors of this wreath are white and silver. We went with sparkly, over-the-top materials. This wreath could be made in a matte version if you want to tone down the glitz.

“Let It Snow” decorations are perfect for the winter months. I now decorate my foyer in “snow” themed decorations starting the first of December, and leave them up until March. It is nice and easy, fits the season, and I do not have to continually remove decorations. It also helps to look seasonally current as we go away for much of the winter. A Christmas wreath in February looks lazy and can signal “hey, these people are on vacation!.” A snow-themed wreath can be left up for a while.

If you are hanging this on a storm door, you may want to consider surrounding it with snowflakes. These wood burned snowflakes as well as a few sparkly snowflakes adhered with double-sided tape gives a nice winter touch.

I have “snowflakes” attached to the storm doors (on the inside) with double-sided tape. I know a lot of people prefer to hang snowflakes but the double-sided tape means they are not moving, and I like that. I have different sizes and different shapes to make it look like a “real” snowfall.

Since I have a large foyer I also have baskets of winter stems, signs, some tea lights and art.

Tips For Making This Let It Snow Wreath:

• The materials necessary to make this easy Wood Burned Snowflake can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• The rhinestone tape used in place of ribbon can be found in the bridal section of your local craft store.

• If you do not wish to use rhinestone tape, ribbon can be used instead.

• If you want a loop for a door hanger, use the rhinestone tape adjusted to the length you desire. If you used ribbon instead, use that ribbon to form your hanger.

• This is a fairly large wreath at 24″. You can adjust the size up or down, but if you do make sure you adjust your other materials to that size.

• This i a very easy to make wreath, while excessively glittery, it is not difficult or complicated to make.

• You can change the sign to “Snow” (these signs can be found at dollar stores, as well as at craft stores).

• This is a very icy, stark, wintery piece, so little color was used.

15 Winter Soup Recipes

a close-up of a spoonful of soup rising from a bowl of soup


Nothing warms you up on a cold winter day like a nice hot bowl of soup! From hearty soups to seafood, from cheesy deliciousness to soups made with leftovers, there is something for everyone on this fabulous list of winter soup recipes.

15 Winter Soup Recipes

It’s soup season! Who doesn’t love a nice, hot bowl of soup on a chilly day? My husband loves soup, and he makes some great ones. My personal favorites are the Buffalo Chicken Wing, the Philly Cheesesteak, and Stuffed Banana Pepper soups; you might have a different favorite.

Served with fresh homemade bread or perhaps some warm homemade yeast rolls or even a terrific cornbread, homemade soup is a delicious meal for lunch (or dinner!) or a great first course at dinnertime.

I have listed everything from a leftovers soup (like the turkey) to something hearty (beef barley… my grandfather’s favorite soup!) to, the BEST Buffalo chicken wing soup ever! I grew up in Buffalo (still live in the area) and there was a local restaurant (Danny’s) that made a name for itself serving their chicken wing soup. It truly is fantastic. And, hubby’s chicken wing soup is even BETTER!! If you love the great taste of Buffalo chicken wings, you are going to want to try this amazing Buffalo chicken win soup recipe. Yum!

Note: these soups are fairly easy to make. Some may have more ingredients than others, but for the most part they are easy to make soups. Most of these soups freeze well too (if you have leftovers or make a double batch). Just make certain you use freezer grade containers. Hubby buys them in giant packs, and we keep the extras down the basement. Our freezer sometimes looks like a frozen soup factory exploded in it. We freeze soup, stews, leftovers, garden vegetables, etc for later use all year long!

And now on to the 15 winter soup recipes…

Wood Burned Snowflake Craft

Wooden snowflake ornament etched with dashes, branches, and the words Let It Snow. There is a twine hanger at the end. This sits on top of a rustic blue surface.


Looking for some great winter decor? These easy to make wood burned snowflakes will look great hanging in your window, from a lamp or chandelier, or decorating your cupboards.

Wood Burned Snowflake Craft

Wood burned ornaments, signs, spoons, and artwork is all the rage and very easy to make. You really only need a wood-burning tool and some wood to make beautiful rustic art in minutes!

“Let It Snow” decorations are perfect for the winter months. I now decorate my foyer in “Snow” themed decorations starting the first of December, and leave them up until March. It is nice and easy, fits the season, and I do not have to continually remove decorations. It also helps to look seasonally current as we go away for much of the winter. A Christmas wreath in February looks lazy and can signal “hey, these people are on vacation!” A snowflake wreath says, “‘Tis the season!”

Since I have a large foyer I also have baskets of winter stems, signs, some tea lights and art.

I have snowflakes attached to the storm doors with double-sided tape. I know a lot of people prefer to hang them, but the double-sided tape means they are not moving, and I like that. I have different sizes and different shapes to make it look like a “real” snowfall.

Tips for Making Wood Burned Snowflakes

• The materials necessary to make this easy Wood Burned Snowflake can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• The tip of the tool gets very hot and even touching it for a second can burn your skin or melt something. Always practice safety when handling your wood burning tool, and read the directions included with your burning tool completely before operating.

• Make certain you are burning in a well-ventilated area. Use a fan pointed toward an open window or door to help with ventilation.

• When you are using the tool, sometimes the slower you use it, the clearer the lines will be.

• The longer you hold the tool to the wood, the darker it will be.

2. Look at your wooden snowflake and make a decision about the best side of the wooden snowflake. Use the side you like best. If you are burning both sides of the snowflake (for a window), this step is not necessary.
3. Put the longest pointed tip in the wood burning tool and plug it in.

4. Once heated up, make short dashes all the way around the perimeter of the wooden snowflake.
5. Once you are done making the short dashes you can lightly start to draw the “Let it Snow” wording in the center with this tip. (You can also draw lightly with a pencil before burning.)
6. Next, unplug the tool and allow it to cool completely.

9. The way you hold the wood burning tool will determine the thinness or thickness of the line.
10. Go around the words until you are satisfied with the look. This may be once, twice, or three times. It is up to you the look you want to achieve.
