Dollar Store Modern Snowman Winter DIYs

Updated: Dec 27, 2021

I had fun mixing metals with this modern snowman winter dollar store decor. I mixed gold, silver and wood to create four really cute decor pieces. I like how the snowman hour glass decor is interactive and other pieces compliment one another. I feel like this year I have done a good job of creating a variety of decor pieces for Christmas and winter no matter what your decor style. Check out below how I made each piece!
