Holiday Window Decor Ideas

It’s something we look forward to every year — decorating for the holiday season! Naturally, a few things come to mind right away, like decorating the Christmas tree, hanging a wreath on the front door, and laying out your favorite Santa Claus knick knacks.

But all too often, we forget about all the blank canvases just waiting to be decorated. We’re talking, of course, about your windows!

Decorating Your Windows for the Holidays

Hanging Garland

If you’re going for an elegant look, garland is a holiday classic that looks good draped along any window. Especially if you have high ceilings, a touch of garland will draw the eye up and make your room feel even more grand.

A Wall of Lights

For those of you who are looking to get really into the holiday spirit, sometimes lights on a tree just aren’t enough. Hanging several strings of lights along your windows quickly adds a festive touch to any room.

A Simple String of Lights

Looking for lights that are a bit more subtle? Attach just one string of lights around the outline of your window or drape them along the center of your window so that they can be seen from the outside.

Candles and Toys

For windows straight out of a story book, keep things simple with holiday knick knacks, fake snow, and battery-powered candles sitting along the windowsill.

Wreaths are a holiday staple, so why not hang them in more places than just your front door?
