A great thing about decorating your windows is that you get a double impact. You can generally see your displays from inside your house and outside – although that can also be challenge.
Lots of people decorate their windows but they often stop at garland around the inside trim and a candle on the sill.
But there’s so much more you can try.
The photo at right is one of my favorite examples.
A few ornaments, some sprigs of greenery and a length of store-bought garland – more like a string of beads – and you’ve got a beautiful look. This photo came from Better Homes and Gardens.
Ornaments are of course a fantastic thing to hang in the window. See the way this home at MyHomeIdeas.com uses colorful ribbons and ornaments to dress up an otherwise plain window.
Ornaments, of course, aren’t your only option.
Check out how pretty pinecones look hung in a window. The photo below from Cottage Home and MyHomeIdeas.com.
Below are a couple more ideas in photos from BHG.
In the photo below left, lights on white wire are wrapped in sheers and then swagged on the window with ribbons and gold accents. Very pretty. Below right, bright red snowflakes accent the smaller panes in a kitchen window.
Sometimes decorating a window can be as simple as hanging a wreath from your curtain rod. The photo from BHG shows what a nice impact a wreath can make.
