Holiday Décor for Windows!

As you begin thinking and planning for holiday décor, don’t forget the windows!  Here are a few dozen window décor ideas for the holidays – from dollar store crafts (that look really cool!) to lights, candles, ornaments and garlands. These window ideas open up all sorts of Christmas and Hanukkah ideas for everyone who loves this time of year. And don’t forget the lights!

Pinecones, Lights, Snowflakes and Stars

From hanging glittery, metallic ornaments, to framing with lights outside and garland inside, Elle Décor has 30 different ideas that will embellish your windows on either side. One approach is to decorate every windowsill with miniature snow-covered houses. Amazon has light-up houses and buildings and whole villages, pine trees, benches, snowmen, deer and streetlamps. 

First Palette has a dozen snowflake templates you can print and cut out, with step-by-step instructions for folding and cutting. You’ll also find ornaments to  print, cut out and decorate – everything from angels, bells, bows, candy canes, and gingerbread men, to poinsettias, reindeer, Santas, snowflakes, stars, and stockings.

This idea sells at L.L. Bean for $60 as a centerpiece, but it’s pictured by a window and looks like it belongs there or on the sill, inside or out. You could make this beautiful Woodland Berry arrangement yourself, just find a mini, but extra-long, wooden trough like one from Home Depot (or this smaller one from Shop Wild Things), and stuff it with pine boughs, berries, pinecones and, dare we say – LED lights!

Here’s one more spin on hanging-from-ribbon ornaments. Take narrow, almost cylindrical pinecones and hang them with opaque, glitter ribbon tied in bows and leaning against a swag of pine garland. Check out the ideas for wreaths and lights with links to supplies at Christmas Decorations Lights.

Holiday Garlands, Wreaths, and Ornaments

House Beautiful curated 20 window décor ideas from paper lights and  tassel garland to beaded wreaths, Epsom salt applications that look like ice and snow has frosted your windows.

Christmas Snydle goes one step further with actual scenes perched on windowsills, like the seated and dancing elves surrounded by Willie Wonka-sized lollipops and the wooden and paper tableau, lit by a string of lights around a suspended branch.

Design Rulz has 40 Christmas decorations to inspire you for inside your home, including one for a windowed door – a pine wreath stuffed with fir sprigs and pinecones with three over-sized brass cowbells handing from rustic rope.

For a picture window, a group of indoor wreaths adds a festive touch for a framed, well-lit display. This idea from Woman’s Day used a magnolia wreath with select leaves painted red, white and green and dusted with glitter, a feathery white wreath with two car houses secured by pins and a boxwood wreath with red ribbon and sleigh bells.

Country Living has garlands topping and flanking windows made from magnolia leaves, mini-rosemary trees, and lots of oversized ornaments.

And Bless my Weeds has 20 easy holiday window box ideas. Now that you’ve cleared out your spring/summer/fall flowers, use your window boxes to sport evergreen boughs and sprigs, ribbons, ornaments and lights!
