We’ve spent a lot of our year peering from the inside out. Why not cheer up your windows this holiday season with some simple decorating ideas that will delight you and anyone passing by.
Gather some sprigs of holly, evergreens, birch branches and pine cones. Place in vases of varying height and width. Tie a ribbon around each vessel and display on a window sill.
A simple wreath hanging in every window never fails to delight. A larger window would look stunning with 3 smaller wreathes, hung at various lengths.
A wire hoop with evergreens and holly covering just the bottom portion, makes a clean, modern expression.
Think outside the box and wrap your windows with these cheery suggestions.
-Cranberries and popcorn
-Tie together various strips of burlap, red & green ribbon or fabric swatches
-Dried citrus and cinnamon sticks (the smell is amazing!)
-Various sizes of Christmas balls
-Peppermint candies and candy canes
-Have the kids help in making a classic paper chain link garland
Let It Snow
Grab a scissors and some white paper and make an assortment of cut out snowflakes.
Check the internet for some easy printable templates. Scatter them on your windows with a string of white lights for a charming look. For a more modern approach experiment with colored or patterned papers.
Show off a Collection
Group all your snowmen, woodland creatures or all your green ornaments and hang from pretty ribbon across your curtain rod.
Gather construction paper, markers and holiday stickers and let the kids help in making a special greeting. Face it towards the outside, so onlookers can see your message.
-Ho Ho Ho
-Peace on Earth
-Better Not Pout
-Jingle All The Way
Have fun decorating and enjoy this holiday season!
