Have you put up your decorations yet? Whether you’re a Christmas fanatic and decorate your home on 1st November, or you hold out for as long as you can before embracing the festive spirit, we’re here to help you come up with window decorating ideas.

For the outside world, your windows are the introduction to your home. By decorating them to get into the Christmassy mood, you’ll also give your house that Winter Wonderland feel from the outside! There are many ways to make your windows look merry. Read on for some advice…

Window stickers

Window stickers are a quick and simple way of showcasing some festive graphics on your glass. Available in a wide range of designs and sizes, you can decorate with classy snowflakes or playful Christmas cartoons. Many of these stickers are made from PVC, are easy to stick on, and leave no glue residue. They’re as low maintenance as you can get!

Wreaths and garlands

When you think of traditional decorations, do wreaths and garlands come to mind? These decorations are a staple in many homes, and they’re easy to put up. They’re versatile – you can adorn your wreath with berries, dried citrus, various leaves, and much more. Whether you opt for either option or both at the same time, they’ll add an earthy tone to your festivities.

Holiday scene

Whether your holiday scene consists of the nativity or some reindeers on the shelf, it’s a great way to add some interest to your windowsill. This scene creates festive cheer from the inside of your home as well as the outside and it’s a simple way of decorating. It can also be a great family activity for an afternoon of bonding.

Christmas planter

When thinking of Christmas window decorations, the exterior of your home can also be used! If you normally have a box planter underneath your window, why not use it to your advantage? You can plant some winter trees, mini firs for example, or decorate the outside with some garlands and berries. This is a simple and organic way of decorating.

Fairy lights

Fairy lights are a simple way of making your home seem cosy and twinkly. Requiring minimal effort, lights are a staple in decorating – they’re not only for your Christmas tree. String your lights across your window frame or collect them in glass jars, and they’ll look magical. Don’t forget that if you have an exterior plug, you can also use lights on your outside frames.

Baubles and snowflakes

When thinking of quirky but simple ways to dress your windows, stringing up baubles has got to be an option. You can suspend them from your curtain pole at different heights to create a Christmas installation. You can also do this with homemade paper snowflakes, which would get the family involved with the decoration process!

If in previous years, you’ve neglected your window frames when decorating for the festive period, don’t make the same mistake this year! These ways of dressing your window are bound to add some cheer to your home, so why not get started…
