Whether you live in a warm climate that doesn’t get much real snow or an area that seems to extend the winter season into fall and spring, snowflake decorations create a classy and timeless look that reminds people of the best parts of the colder months of the year. More gently falling snow and sitting by the fire, less shoveling and slush.
Snowflake decorations are non-denominational, making them a great décor piece for public spaces, like office buildings, small businesses and classrooms. We also love using them in our home to create a warm, welcoming décor and adding a touch of winter even during summer.
Whether you’re looking to decorate windows, cover walls, or brighten any room with twinkling lights, snowflake decorations are a fantastic accessory to keep on hand for any time of the year. Check out four of our favorite picks below.

Pros: The Moon Boat decals are made without the assistance of adhesive thanks to their metope material and won’t leave any residue behind.
