The holiday season has arrived, and you know what that means; it’s time to decorate! I know that with the wild year that we have had, many of my friends and family are choosing to go all out in decorating their homes this year.
Have you started thinking about decorating yet?
I have always loved window decorations for the holidays. It’s such an easy place to decorate and show your love for the season!
Plus, since your windows are a smaller area, it’s less overwhelming to take on this decorating project.
If you are ready to start decorating on a smaller scale, here are some easy ways to decorate your windows this holiday season.Want to decorate your windows this holiday season? To help you out, we've rounded up some of our favorite Christmas window decorations right here! Click To Tweet
Decorating Your Windows For Christmas
There are many easy ways to decorate your windows this holiday season, but I have highlighted some of my favorites in hopes that it gets your home decorated festively for the holidays and puts a smile on the faces of you and your loved ones.
One of the easiest ways to decorate your windows this holiday season is to simply get holiday-themed curtains or window treatments. This could even work if you use holiday colored curtains.
While you may not want to spend money on window treatments that will only be up for a matter of weeks, consider that these can be used year after year.
Light Them Up
Holiday lights are just so much fun, aren’t they? I love all that you can do with them!
One of the many uses for those strings of holiday lights is to decorate your windows with them.
Here are a couple of examples of how you can use lights to decorate your windows this holiday season:
- Use the lights to frame the window.
- String them through garland and apply to the border or just the bottom of the window
- You can even buy image shaped lights that are specifically meant to be displayed in your window (this is definitely the easiest way to go)
If you are headed to the dollar store or even your local big box store, you can check out their selection of window clings that are holiday-themed.
This is an easy to install and easy to clean up type of decor for those that want super simple!
Let Your Tree Do It
Now your Christmas tree might just be the ultimate in easy ways to decorate your windows this holiday season!
Think about it. You are already going to put up and decorate your tree, so it’s not any added work.
However, we like to have a separate window tree since the best window in the front of our house is in an office.
If you are going to have two trees, I suggest making your window tree a super simple setup and use Nearly Natural.
With over 350 Christmas trees to chose from, you are sure to find a tree that fits your needs.
Our tree from Nearly Natural was super easy to put up. It was pre-lit and only in three separate pieces. There was no having to put each branch on individually, which, let’s face it, no one enjoys doing.
It worked perfectly for our needs!
However, if you don’t want to mess with a second full-sized tree, you can find small (1.5 foot) lighted trees for less than $10 at some stores, and these can easily be put on your window sills.
How cute would it be to have all of your windows decorated with their own tree this year?
If your window sill is wide enough, candles make great holiday decor!
Many cultures have a holiday tradition of lighting candles, which means your decor can be both easy and traditional.
You could also find battery-powered candles if you are concerned about the fire risk.
Nothing quite says the holiday season like wreaths. Wreaths are not just for doors anymore either!
Many people choose to use wreaths to decorate their windows. It’s a pretty yet minimal holiday look that is easy to accomplish.
Whether you make or buy your wreaths, they can be any size you wish so that they can work well with any size window.
If you have a decent-sized window sill, merely placing your cute holiday trinkets there can do the trick. I’ve seen lots of little ceramic home villages, quite a few Santa figures, and even elves and reindeer gracing the window sills of homes that I have driven by.
All of these have added a super cute holiday element to their homes.
One of the most creative ways I have seen people decorate their windows is by wrapping them up in wrapping paper. This makes them look like a little gift!
While this option doesn’t work for those who prefer to see out of their windows, it’s one of the most unique of the easy ways to decorate your windows this holiday season that we have talked about.
The easiest way to accomplish this look is to tape the paper up to the inside of your window. That’s it.
What do you think of these easy ways to decorate your windows this holiday season? Can you think of any others to add to the list?
