Christmas is coming and we think that decorating your home is part of the festive fun. So, here are some ideas to help you make your windows a festive treat for the eyes this December. It’s just for fun!
Decorating Window Panes
Fake snow (that you spray out of a can) looks really festive and you could create the ‘snowed-in’ look by spraying it into the corners of your windows, or within the borders of sash windows. It should be really easy to remove with soap and water in January. Depending on your taste, tinsel can look really festive when hung around the inside of your windows too.
Fairly lights placed around windows looks lovely on the interior, and inviting to friends and relatives on the outside, arriving in the dark and cold. Hanging things from the top of the window, like Christmas stockings, baubles and sparkly stars, looks pretty inside and out.
If you have children, you could cut-out paper snowflakes and attach them to the inside with tape or blue-tac.
And the piece de resistance – surely everyone likes the sight of a lit-up Christmas tree through the window of a cosy-looking home? Consider positioning your tree by the window where everyone – including Father Christmas – can see it!
Interior Window Sill
Any window with an interior sill can be decorated to look really festive. This is where you can place candles or fairy lights, which will look great from outside in the dark. Electric / battery-operated candles are a good alternative to the real thing if you’re worried about fire hazards.
Traditional Christmassy toys, like wooden toy soldiers, drummer boys, or a nativity scene, look really festive when positioned on a window sill.
Bringing Nature Indoors
Traditionally, people decorate their homes and windows with holly and mistletoe at Christmas. Another plant that looks lovely at this time of year is fern, which can be placed around the window, perhaps with some fairy lights running through it.
Pine cones are also really seasonal, so you could place some on your sill. You can purchase fake and silver ones in shops, or forage for the real thing for your home.
We hope we’ve inspired you to dust off your decorations and enter into the Christmas spirit and we’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone at South Coast Windows!
