Simple Christmas Window Decoration Tips
It’s All About Imagination
Decorating for Christmas is all about channeling your inner child and letting your imagination guide you.
The best home Christmas window displays are devised by people who take a grain of an idea and then let their imagination lead them to create their own unique window display.
So, this article is designed to give some basic ideas that you can take to begin your own creative journey into decorating a fabulous Christmas window display this holiday season.
Don’t Limit Your Choice of Materials
Always remember that when decorating for the holidays, you don’t need to break the budget since you can use a variety of materials and items you already have to create a beautiful Holiday window.
In addition, you can also use a number of things found in nature right in your own backyard.
So, start by considering the materials you already have on hand as the basics for your display.
Here are some seeds of ideas to get you started.
Christmas Window Decoration Ideas for the Home
Christmas Craft Paper Ornaments
You can use scrap booking paper (due to its thickness) to make some great craft paper ornaments to hang in your window.
Using a template, you can draw and cut out different large ornament shapes to hang from window. (You want your ornaments to be large enough to be seen clearly from outside your home).
Cutting two of the same ornament shape from the same designed paper and gluing them to together back to back will allow you to create an ornament that looks as good from inside your home as it does on the outside.
Hang your paper ornaments at different heights to add interest to your window display.
Birds on a Branch
Although not strictly Christmas, trees are part of the winter elements whether those trees are evergreens or bare branches. And you can create a fun winter/Christmas window display using faux birds and either bare or artificial pine branches.
You can take a large bare branch with smaller branches coming off of it and set in a block of wood, planter or vase. Then add some small birds to some of the branches.
For those who don’t have access to branches around their home, some artificial pine branches set into colorful pots can create a window size pine forest.
You can then make a small limb swing and set a series of birds on the limb and add your own little touches such as scatter pine cones or small wrapped boxes.
String some lights around the window to light up your display at night.

Beaded Ornament Display
Why not take some of those pretty colorful ornaments you already have and dress them up for your window display.
All you need to do is attach thin string of fish line to the loop at the top of the ornament and string beads all the way up the string.
You can choose clear beads to reflect the colored blinking lights around your window, or rainbow beads to use with those clear lights.
Adding glass beads to transparent ornaments can make a dazzling Christmas window that you and your neighbors will be able to enjoy.
Shadowy Christmas Window Decor
You can easily create your own beautiful silhouette window display for any size window.
Using black poster board you can cut out a forest of pine trees, a cityscape, and Santa’s sleight with reindeer or snowmen. Make the silhouettes the appropriate size for the window you are decorating.
Then hang a curtain of fairy lights behind your shadowy décor
Amazon has a number of different winter and Christmas wall sticker/window cling decorations you can use to create a cute window décor.
Snowflakes make a great window display especially when you have a stand in front of your window with flocked tabletop Christmas trees sitting on the stand. These two items combined together can create a beautiful wintry window display that adds a touch of beauty to your home’s and window décor.

Use Your Family Christmas Tree as Your Christmas Window Decoration
You can actually make a great Christmas window display without placing any decorations in the window itself, simply by situating your family Christmas tree in front of your picture window.
Your tree will make a beautiful display all by itself and allow you to show off that beautiful Christmas tree to all your neighbors at the same time.
Christmas wreaths can make wonderful Christmas window displays. For large picture windows you can place two or three wreaths of various sizes staggered at difference lengths. For smaller windows a single wreath will likely do the trick.
You can choose a variety of differently decorated Christmas wreaths for different windows.

Should you choose real wreaths, you can even display wreaths made from various different evergreen wreaths to make an interesting display.
Tabletop Decorations in Front of Your Display Window
You can also place a table window height in front of your picture window and place a Christmas arrangement on that table or stand.
This will allow you to set up such things as your Christmas village or train set and use that as part of your holiday décor. You can also display all of your Christmas collectibles for your neighbors to enjoy.
