holiday lightsIt’s not too late to decorate! Dress up your windows to give your home a festive look. Window decorations can be placed on the inside to create a personal and inviting look, or on the outside, for higher visibility and more impact. The options range from formal to whimsical – choose a look to compliment your home or to suit your unique style.

It is not necessary to spend a lot on holiday window decorations, but if your seasonal spirit sets your budget high, there are plenty of awe inspiring options. If you are looking for some simple ideas that you can pull together in a flash, we’ve got some suggestions for you.

Christmas Window decorationsWreaths

Create a classic and traditional look with a small wreath in each window. While fresh pine wreaths can be costly, there are plenty of artificial options that look realistic and can be used year after year.  Add a string of lights, frosted pinecones, or a simple red bow for a timeless, Currier & Ives inspired display.


Whether you go with a single candle in each window, or a multiple candles in a larger window, window candles will give your home a warm and cozy glow. A variety of bulb options are available, and look much like real candles from the street. Put timers on the lights for extra convenience.


Hanging ornaments in the window is a wonderfully creative way to design a window that reflects your personal style. Make it modern, or make it colorful with some added tinsel! Simply hang the ornaments at varying lengths using fishing line or another clear thread.

Hanging Lights

This is another option that lets you express your own personality. Many options abound, ranging from simple clear light strands to the classic, larger colorful bulbs. Outlining your windows in lights from the inside can be a great option for those who cannot hang light outside. Again, put the lights on a timer, so you don’t have to remember to turn them on.

Natural Swag

Frame your holiday windows with fresh-cut pine boughs. Scraps and odd pieces work fine for this, so see if your local Christmas tree farms or lots have some you can get for a low price. Gather them together with wire and create a rope or chain. Add in berries, holly sprigs, or pine cones for a rustic and seasonal look.

No matter what holiday window decorations you choose, keep in mind that they will look the best on sparkling clean windows! Need your windows cleaned for the holidays? Give us a call!
