Cozy Winter Home Tour- Budget Farmhouse Winter Decor Ideas

Welcome to my Cozy Winter Home Tour – Budget Farmhouse Winter Decor Ideas.

It is generally a difficult time of year to decorate; however, it doesn’t have to be. Today, I’m sharing a home tour with several cozy winter decor ideas you can use to decorate your home.

What Are Budget Farmhouse Winter Decor Ideas?

Just look to nature for budget-friendly farmhouse winter decor ideas. Here are some of my favorite winter decorations.

  • Foraged Pinecones
  • Bare Branches
  • Forced Stems
  • Winter Greenery (especially Boxwood)
  • Cozy Throw Blankets
  • Candles
  • Woods and Whites
  • Vintage Brass
  • Warm Copper
  • Baskets
  • Bowls of Fruit and nuts

If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that most of my decor is thrifted and, therefore, very budget-friendly.

Cozy Winter Blog Hop

Today I’m joining my friend Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home for a Cozy Winter Home Tour Blog Hop. You will see a total of 12 Homes Decorated for Winter. Be sure to click on each link at the end of my tour.

If you are joining me from Shelley at Calypso in the Country, I’m so glad you stopped by.

The Entryway

Although my home doesn’t have a foyer or official entryway, this area next to the front doors serves as our entry space.

I’ve left the area minimal for my usual decorating style. This winter, I’m using the warm tones of the basket and vintage shifter to fill the space. Greenery and flocked pinecones add a winter feel.

Here, I’ve added some forsythia stems to a sap bucket. They are still bare, but the heat and window light will soon force the blooms. It will then look like an early spring inside the house.

If you’d like to force blooms in winter, read Cheat Winter: Force Forsythia Flowers & More To Bloom Indoors Now.

The vintage wooden thread spools were a yard sale score. I repurposed them for these fun tassels just before Christmas.

A gathering of foraged pinecones under a metal cloche fills the vintage sifter. The snowy tips are achieved with an easy flocking technique.

Natural Greenery for Winter

One of my favorite ways to make the farmhouse feel cozy for winter is to add natural greenery.

This DIY magnolia wreath is drying out beautifully. I made it before Christmas and didn’t preserve the leaves as I was short on time. However, as I watch it dry, I’m glad I didn’t. I love the faded colors, which are perfect for winter decorating.

Winter is a great time to make your own magnolia wreath; the tutorial can be seen here.

Since the holidays, I’ve been bringing fresh boxwood into the house. When you cut the boxwood in winter, it will continue to look great through the spring months.

Vintage books, flicker candles, and greenery add a warm, cozy feel to the room on a gloomy day.

Each winter, I replace my Silent Night Cow Painting with Faith.

She is actually a sister to Sophie! However, Faith’s quote is from Ecclesiastes – “To Everything there is a Season”.

She is a daily reminder that winter will pass and we have warmer days to look forward to. Faith prints are available in my store.

Candlelight and Brass

In addition, I like to fill the dining table with thrifted brass candlesticks for winter. I’ll share the entire table on our monthly Supper Club Tablescape Ideas later this month.

Last year I made a multi-candleholder from reclaimed wood and used it for a Cozy Winter Tablescape.

Cozy Winter Kitchen

The kitchen is a hard room to make cozy; however, because I’m sharing a cozy winter home tour, I wanted the kitchen cozy as well. So here’s what I did.

With a neutral white color palette, I am adding warm coppers and brass to help up the cozy factor.

One of our fall projects was building this copper pot rack hanger, which instantly added warmth to the brick backsplash wall.

In addition, the open shelving includes more copper, woods, and whites. The aged patina on the vintage ironstone also helps to warm the space.

Finally, add a few flicker candles, pinecone candles, and faux snow-tipped pinecones to the shelving.

Warm Woods

One of my favorite projects was the DIY Kitchen Island, which we built while the farmhouse was under construction.

I’ve shared that I wanted a reclaimed barn wood top for the island. Instead, we used this technique to make the new wood look old.

The rustic wood gives the kitchen an old-world feel.

The island is filled with a vintage vignette, including a french cheese board, antique mason jars, a vintage toolbox, an old butter mold, and more vintage copper pieces. Most of these pieces are thrift store finds.

Cozy Winter Home – Bedroom

I like for the bedroom to be cozy year-round. Today, the neutral woods and whites continue into the bedroom for winter.

The 3 step flea market flip, side table, and easy thrifted lamp makeover help make the space warm.

I love all the bedding options, and this ruffled quilt and pillow shams are made with soft cotton fabric.

I’ve added a few Valentine’s Day touches with the paper garland and vintage quilt hearts. In addition, the room includes a few touches of warm blues, which include floral pillow shams.
