As Thanksgiving is nearing, let’s just admit it… we all are starting to think about Christmas.  And this year I started decorating earlier than ever before!  We put out Christmas tree up this past weekend and my kids are in heaven.

Today I am sharing a fun Winter Lady that is making her debut in my decor this year.

How do you make a Winter Lady Head Decoration?

My plan want to have the greenery act as my lady’s “winter hat”.  So, I started by drawing out the basic shape of her “hat” with a pencil on the top of her head.

Next, I started removing portions of the styrofoam with my x-acto knife.  Mom, if you are reading this… skip to the next step.  I almost chopped my fingers.

To be completely honest, I thought carving a small bowl shape into styrofoam would be much easier than it was.  Go slow, do not rush.  Take your time and PLEASE keep all your lovely fingers.

Next I disassembled all the winter greenery I had bought.  I’m big into organically creating silk flower displays.

TIP: Just because you buy an “arrangement” that all comes together on one nice big stem, it does not mean that you should go home, put in a vase and call it a day.  I always cut the stems off at varying heights and rearrange my flowers.  This gives a much more natural look to your displays.

Now comes the fun part, creating your lady’s winter “hat”.  I knew I wanted the bird’s nest to be the main focus, so that was the first item I placed.  I stuck it down into the styrofoam and then added just a dab of hot glue for extra holding power.

Then, I started slowing adding additional sprigs, pinecones and berries.
