Winter Accents

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we are proud to offer many decorative products to help you with your home decor this season. It’s not always about the red and green however, below we have gathered some items we feel would be great for the holidays but also appropriate throughout the entire winter season. Consider smaller themes of Peace on Earth, Snowflakes, Sleigh Rides or Snowmen for your home today. For a complete look at all of our holiday and winter themed products click here.

Peace on Earth

“Peace on Earth,” a message usually heard only around the holidays is a theme that will continue to highlight your home throughout the winter. Seen here to the left is our Peace on Earth Wall Plaque. A white dove extending a holly bough, brings us the popular sentiment designed by artist Lisa Hilliker. The plaque went through a twelve step process to adhere the image to wood, giving it a ‘canvas painting’ appearance. Feel peaceful with other Sturbridge items such as our Peace Star Pillow or our Peace Angel Ornament. Our Peace Star Pillow is crafted of wool felt material to appear cozy and warm wherever you decide to place this small and charming pillow. The Peace Angel Ornament is reminiscent of the snow angels we made as a child. Simply designed and dressed in ivory wool to highlight her magnificent wings, you’ll love this handcrafted, 100% natural wool ornament; you don’t need a tree to hang this beauty!


Winter is synonymous with snowfall and snowflakes (even if you live where it never snows) and a great way to celebrate the season is to decorate with them! Again, although great for the holidays, any of these items mentioned here can be used throughout the winter months. Pictured here to the right is our Snowflake Pillow. The bright red background (or green if you prefer), contrasts gorgeously with the white falling snowflake in the center. The hand hooked wool technique showcases all the details. To match, consider our Snowflake Chair Pad.

Another idea when thinking snowflakes this winter is our Glitter Lace Table Topper and coordinating Glitter Lace Valance; both proudly made in the USA. The Glitter Lace Collection at Sturbridge is designed with an intricate pattern of snowflakes, scalloped edges and a touch of glitter weaved into the polyester lace material. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!


A Winter Sleigh Ride

Featured here to the left is our beautiful Sleigh Ride Print, by an unknown artist. At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we are proud to say that this print is a five star rated item. A Victorian winter couple on a holiday ride in the snow, captures the feel of the brisk winter air all around us. As long as there’s snow, there can be sleigh rides and that’s why decorating your home with sleigh ride themed items works all winter long.

Other sleigh rides you and your family might consider taking are found in our ever popular Grandmother’s House Print or our Winter Again Print; both featuring fast paced sleigh rides over a landscape of snowy hills. If it’s just the sleigh itself you’re looking for, consider our Sleigh Pillar Holder. A rustic red with exposed metal, touches of gold and a distressed finish give this sleigh a very antique appearance. It will look great displayed with pillar style candles on top of your mantle. Tie it all together with our Sleigh Rides & Hot Cocoa Sign, made from pinewood in the USA.

Cheerful Snowmen

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we have a large variety of snowman themed decor, but here are just a few that we know you’ll love. Pictured here to the right is our Snowman Candy Dish, which is proudly handcrafted from a hard shell gourd here in the USA. Display peppermints, candy canes, nuts, and other winter candies inside the snowman’s belly. This jolly fellow, dressed in a red scarf and matching earmuffs, will be a welcoming site as you come in from the cold. A snowman item that your children or grandchildren might love, is our Snowman Night Light. Adding a sweet touch to your winter and snowy themed decorating, this night light is made of pretty stained glass and nickel plating to ensure this light will be shiny for years to come. If you really love snowman and want to perhaps have one in every room, consider any of our Snowman Woolys and collect them all!
