Have Yourself a White Christmas

You can watch the weather channel tirelessly.  You can try doing the “snow dance.”  You can play “Let It Snow” on repeat.  You can close your eyes and make a wish.  Try as you might, a snowy landscape can be hard to come by in the Pacific Northwest.  Rather than keep peeking out your window each morning in hopes of some flakes, you can make your own snow scene.  Gather a few supplies ahead of time and you’ll be ready to make your own White Christmas this year.  Get ready for your apartment to become transformed into a winter wonderland.

Make your own snow
Try some new spins to the classic paper snowflake patterns.  If you have a hot glue gun, you can create your own unique snowflake formations to decorate your windows.  Or roll up some paper into these gorgeous quill snowflakes to hang around your apartment.

Eat some snow
A snow day is not complete without closing your eyes, poking your tongue out, and catching some delightful flakes.  You can make your own edible snow by decorating fluffy white meringue snowflakes or baking powdery Russian Tea Cakes.

Build a snowman
You can pass on the freezing toes and wet gloves, but still build your very own Frosty.  All you need is some paper and scissors to take over your door with a fun paper snowman craft.  If you’re partial to creating in the kitchen, build these delicious melting snowman cookies.

Sip a frosty cocktail
Since you won’t be cold from playing outside, you can instead warm up with some boozy cocktails.  Sip the flavors of winter with this Coconut Cream Martini or create a frosty concoction with this Vodka Snowflake Cocktail.  Cheers!

Add some winter décor
If your apartment has some extra mason jars available, you’re prepared to build some fun winter crafts.  Gather some Epsom salt to add piles of snow to your candles or build your very own snow globes!
