Windows decorated for christmas

Decorating your windows

You have probably gathered lots of decorating ideas for your Christmas tree, your fireplace mantel and even your dining table. Sadly, window decorations tend to be ignored when a unique window décor can bring an even more magical atmosphere to your home. Some styles you can choose from include snowflakes, ornaments, pinecones, advent calendars, even cookies! All of these decorations can be hung on your windows making them sparkle this season.

Bring emphasis to your home’s front facing windows with window boxes full of seasonal décor. Fill the boxes with your favourite evergreen branches and give your house a rustic winter feel while giving substance to secure your decorations too. Top them off with a strand of lights, colourful decorations or traditional elements such as pine cones, bows of holly and ornaments to complete your holiday look. When it comes to decorating your windows for the Christmas season, the options are endless!

Once you have decorated the tree and your windows, it’s time to deck out your front door. From Christmas wreaths to lights to garlands, there are so many different ways to decorate your front door. Here are just a couple ideas that will have your house looking the most festive on your street.

Wreaths are a common décor item to use on your front door but to make it even more joyful tie it all together using a small embellishment such as a ribbon that connects with your other decoration colours.

If you feel like going against the common wreath tradition, try creating an enchanting winter wonderland theme. Gather the kids and cut out snowflakes to hang from a string of lights around your entry door. Spray faux trees white and place them on each side of your door. To make even Frosty jealous, spray-paint wire baskets white and fill them with sparkling silver ornaments and then hang the baskets.

Use these holiday décor tips and even the Grinch won’t be able to avoid feeling welcomed into your home this holiday season. If during your holiday decorating adventures you notice it might be time to replace your windows and doors contact Dayside Windows and Doors and we will help you.
