We just recently said goodbye to our Yule tree, and I was so sad about it! It made my home so cozy and warm. I know mid-January sounds pretty late to just be letting go of the tree, but I loved having it as just decoration, since I kept it simple and minimal.
I will admit, it does feel a lot fresher in here now that the space is cleared up. It feels like the final bit of winter is unfolding and I find myself planning new decor for spring.
I decided that since we were putting away the more “Yule” type of decorations, I would take down the red and white bell wreath I had on my front door, and so I broke off some of the branches from the tree and saved the orange slices to make a new wreath.
I secured it all in place with ornament hooks and tied it to the knocker with jute rope. The hoop size I used is 14in/35.5cm and I got it at Michael’s 👍🏻
It is difficult to stay in the winter mindset when the temps here go up into the 60s! (15°C+), but I know this will of course all change. Hopefully soon my winters will be filled with snow, bonfires, cloudy days, and long, dark nights.
I hope you’re enjoying winter wherever you are. Sending love and hugs your way ♥ Talk soon!
