10 ways to decorate your windows for Christmas

10 ways to decorate your windows for Christmas

1. With candles and candle jars

This is the simplest and most magical idea for those who have a window sill or a shelf under the windows. The secret ? We forget moderation, it's Christmas! We align without complexes and without counting candles, tealight holders, lanterns and tealights of all sizes and styles, preferably LED, especially if the window has curtains ... fire risk required. There are even remote-controlled LED candles to avoid lighting them one by one. Guaranteed magic at night, when the lights are reflected on the dark panes!

2. With string lights

The advantage of light garlands is that they provide the same magic as candles, but can be adapted to all types of windows. From small to large panes, from bay windows to canopies, we decorate the glazing with a string of light garlands. Ultra-thin or XXL, battery or mains, they can hang on curtain rods, fix with tape or nails, drip in front of the windows or land on a window sill. And they are found in the form of bulbs, stars, reindeer or bells, among others!

3. With stencils and fake snow

Fake snow also exists in spray bombs to personalize Christmas decorations. And on windows, it works too, a golden tip for decorate large windows, bay windows, patio doors or canopies! It is enough to provide stencils, ideally plasticized to prevent the false snow from soaking them too quickly, then to tape them on the windows. We spray, gently remove the stencil and start again later. As for cleaning, a sponge is enough!

4. With hanging subjects

With Christmas balls or figurines and pretty ribbons, the windows go into Christmas mode, and elegantly, please. We attach the Christmas decorations to the ribbons, the ribbons to the curtain rod or to the window sill, even on a wire stretched from one edge to the other. It only remains to mix the subjects, the ribbons, the sizes and the lengths to create a cascade of christmas decorations in front of the window. It's beautiful, it's delicate, it's easy to do and we can even highlight our favorite subjects.

5. With chalk markers

Under this funny name hide white or colored markers capable of writing on all surfaces, from slate to glass, and erasing with a swipe of the cloth. Suffice to say that the chalk markers are the kings of window decorations, since they can draw on all glass surfaces and stay there until the next cleaning, without damaging anything. At Christmas, we use them to draw on the windows and when we do not master the freehand drawing, we print Christmas patterns to tape on the other side of the window to reproduce the lines ... unless we leave s 'express the children!

6. With figurines

Why settle for garlands or candles? We can create a real Christmas decor on a window sill by putting on festive figurines, for a result as chic inside as outside. The best? Luminous LED figurines that illuminate the room and create a magical atmosphere worthy of the holidays. For purists, you can even drop snow on the edge of the window. Sleigh, reindeer, Santa Claus, snowmen, mini tree, everything works.

7. With stickers

Another idea for decorate windows at christmas, temporarily and without damaging them? The stickers, of course. From the snowflakes to the village of Santa Claus passing by the snowmen, there is a slew of Christmas stickers in white or in colors, to stick easily on the glass surfaces then to take off at the end of the season. Conclusion, we use them without complexes on the windows and we do not hesitate to let the children do. Most can be moved and replaced if the application was missed the first time!

8. With cushions

A bench or bench in front of the window? Chic then, we will be able to create a real cocooning corner for Christmas. There are two cuddly cushions and a candle for a minimalist decor, a plaid, a mountain of cushions and stuffed animals for the maximalist version. No qualms, at Christmas all excesses are allowed, and the result is as comfortable as seasonal to wait for Christmas Eve while reading in front of the window.

9. With paper cut flakes

In the family of creative christmas hobbies, there is the cutting of snowflakes. A folded sheet of paper, a template to follow or experience and voila: by unfolding the paper, you get pretty cut flakes with a clean look. For the more skilful, you can also cut a thicker paper directly with a sharp cutter. In all cases, a few points of double-sided tape are enough to stick the flakes on a glass surface, and the decorative effect is as joyful as magical!

10. With gifts

When you are lucky enough to have a window sill, a shelf or a bench under the windows, you stack gift packs of different sizes and color. Nicely packaged, of course. Not only the decor is magical, but the children or the guests will tremble until Christmas to find out what is hidden in the packages… candies, empty boxes or real gifts camouflaged before the passage of Santa Claus, each his secret!
