Today I’m sharing how I created this set of easy, DIY snowy scene abstract paintings! I love how they pair beautifully with my Christmas decor, but I honestly think these paintings could work all winter long!
Today I’m joining eight very talented friends who are also sharing some simple Christmas DIY projects! Be sure to visit each of their blogs at the bottom of this post for more seasonal inspiration!
If you saw my Christmas bedroom last week, you may have spotted the snowy abstract paintings I had hanging on the wall near our new Christmas tree. I actually made those paintings myself using supplies I already had on hand, so they were absolutely free and SO easy!

My boys LOVE to paint and a few weeks ago they asked if they could paint a snowman since we got a ton of snow. While they created their own snowy scenes I decided to try painting a few of my own, as well. I was pleasantly surprised by how well these turned out!

Paint brush – find similar here
2-3 acrylic paint shades in the colors of your choice
Easy Diy Snowy Scene Abstract Painting – Step 1
The first thing I did was tear out three sheets of acrylic finish paper for painting. I laid them all next to each other so I could be sure that my paintings were somewhat cohesive. Then, I started with my first color.
I squeezed a quarter size amount of paint in the shade of “Granite Gray” by Apple Barrel Matte Acrylic paint and brushed it all over the bottom third of each of my papers. I LOVE this color! You can blend it as much as you like, I personally prefer to see the brush strokes in abstract art.

Next, squeeze the same amount of paint in the middle of each of your papers using the next shade. I used the color “White” again by Apple Barrel Matte Acrylic Paint.
You want to start with the next color while your first color is still wet, that way you can blend the two shades together.

Finally, repeat step 2 using a bit more of your second shade (or an even lighter shade) at the very top of your paintings to create sort of an ombre effect.
I love how the blue and white shades blend together to create a winter like, snowy scene. The set looks so beautiful next to the Christmas tree we have in our bedroom!
