The shorter days and longer nights of winter mean your home will be illuminated from within every evening. What better time to create some beautiful holiday themed windows? The team at All-Weather Window, Doors & Siding has gathered these window decorating ideas from Pinterest to inspire you to make your windows festive. Maybe even get the kids involved!
Wreaths Put the O in Ho, Ho, Ho
Whether you put one big wreath in each window or dangle a few smaller wreaths at varying lengths, writhes with greenery and and bows add a festive touch to any window.
Ornaments Aren’t Just for Trees
Take those festive ornaments off the tree and display them in a window. Choose elegant metallics, festive red and white or bright jewel tones and hang them from ribbons, garland, beads, etc. Mix it up and make it your own! They’ll look great from both inside and outside.
Get a Little Flaky
Snowflakes are appropriate all winter long, so adorn your panes with any kind you can find. Create a snowflake curtain. Get the kids involved and make them out of paper, get some from the dollar store, or even use the stick-on variety.
Pearls, Polka Dots and Doilies
Get a more elegant look by stringing pearls like window garland and adding small white dots to simulate snowflakes. Multi-size doilies also do a great job of pretending to be a Christmas tree when placed and spaced appropriately.
Light It Up
Lights always add a festive touch. They don’t have to be fancy. Stars, snowflakes or just glowing orbs will bring a touch of holiday magic to any window. Go with small dainty lights or even one big show stopper like the big star below.
Do You See What I See?
Use large letters to send a message of holiday joy to your neighbors and passersby. This is perfect for bay and bow windows too. If you have four windows, choose a word like NOEL. Five windows…PEACE works nicely.
Take the Elf Off the Shelf
Break the rules and have some fun with playfully posed elves. Add a ladder at the bottom or trapeze swings to the top. Let the kids help with this one and get as creative as possible. Young and old alike will find delight in this display.
