Decorating your windows this Christmas

window decorationIt’s no doubt come to that time when you are contemplating putting up the Christmas decorations. A great way to create that holiday atmosphere is by using your windows to form part of your overall decorative look. Often ignored, decorating your windows can create a unique and interesting look. Whether you choose something as simple as hanging some fairly lights, or a more complex Christmas scene, it’s definitely something that shouldn’t be overlooked.

One of the main benefits is that you can easily stick and remove any decorations afterwards without having to worry about peeling paint off the walls or leaving permanent marks.
With that in mind, here are a few ideas for you to try:

You may remember creating snowflakes when you were at school? Simple to do, simple fold a piece of paper and cut holes out of it to create snowflakes, then unfold and stock to your window for a lovely display. It’s cheap, easy to do and something that you can do with the kids to keep them occupied too.

Fake snow

There are lots of fake snow sprays you can purchase inexpensively, either create special templates to use, or why not take the idea as above and use your snowflakes as templates! You can create all kinds of patterns and scenes and it’s easy to clean off afterwards so you don’t need to worry if you make a mistake!


A firm favorite at Christmas time, use a simple strand of fairly lights or perhaps a net styled pattern of lights to create a welcoming look from both inside and outside the home. Do make sure you read the safety advice on your lights though.

Another firm favourite is to have fake candle style lights on the windowsill or you can use the real thing, but again make sure you are extra vigilant, especially with little people who tend to be curious!

Create a scene

You can pick up some Christmas themed ornaments fairly inexpensively these days, so why not create your own scene to display this holiday season. Easy to assemble whilst creating an impact at the same time.

Whatever you decide to do this Christmas, don’t neglect your windows, they create a fabulous canvas for you to be as creative as you want to (or not!).
