4 Window Decorating Ideas To Get You In The Holiday Spirit!

Ashley Dennis | 03 Dec 2019 | Seasonal Trends

The air has turned crisp (for most of the country) and Christmas carols are on the radio. This year when you put up your holiday decor, why not give your windows some seasonal cheer! These simple looks will help get you in the holiday spirit in no time.

1. Hang Wreaths In Your Windows

Just about everyone hangs a wreath on their door. But why not spread the cheer through the rest of your home too? Hang wreaths in your windows or over your blinds for a festive look in every room!

You can suspend the wreaths from the window frame with a nail and some decorative ribbon or try a suction cup with a hook for a no-tools approach. Choose a wreath with accent colors that match other decor items in the home for a cohesive look with subtle holiday cheer.

2. Put Your Tree By A Window

Let your tree shine, from inside and outside! Placing the tree next to a window gives your curb appeal a festive boost without having to deal with a ladder and stringing lights outside the home. All you need to do is open your shades to let your lights shine! Be sure to decorate all sides of the tree evenly with this look so bare spots don't show from the outside.

3. Place Garland Over The Curtain Rod Or Headrail

You don't have to struggle with untangling a rat's nest of Christmas lights. A bit of garland draped above your shades or along the curtain rod is an elegant touch that can make even washing the dishes feel more merry.

4. Go Neutral - Match Decor to Window Treatments

Not feeling the boldness of traditional red and white holiday decor? Try a more subdued holiday color palette.

Look to your room's current color scheme for inspiration and match your holiday decor to the existing fixtures in the room. Neutrals and wood tones are perfect and give a space a little extra warmth.
