10 Best Window Decorations for the Holiday Season

The time has come. The holiday is upon us, and if you have been putting off putting up your decorations you can’t afford to wait much longer. If you are looking to bring a little cheer to your home and neighborhood this year, these are the top window decorations to try. These are 10 simple, and safe options to use on your windows in Scottsdale, AZ.

  1. Traditional Wreath

Can’t go wrong with this classic, especially when you move it from the door to the new windows Scottsdale. But don’t use the adhesive hooks directly on the glass. These can do some damage to the laminate coatings. So if you do decide to string a wreath in your window, hang it with fishing line from a hook attached on the wall above your window or opt for suction cup hooks instead.

  1. Candy Canes

If you have a sweet tooth you can put a lot of those pretty holiday treats to good use as decorations. Use a tension rod and tie the candy canes to ribbons to hang down. Then you can also enjoy them when you take the decorations down.

  1. Baubles

Another popular choice is hanging large glass ornaments and baubles on ribbons or fishing line in the windows. This is a great idea if you have young children and want to get the more fragile ornaments off the tree, and out of reach. You can still enjoy the glitz and glimmer, without the worry of little hands getting too close.

  1. Garlands

Pine boughs and fronds work for both inside and outside to swag your windows. They add a beautiful bit of green to tie in your tree. And if you choose to use fresh greenery it will make your home smell great.

  1. Paper Snowflakes

Give off the impression of living in a snow globe by hanging paper snowflakes in all the windows. This is a great way to get the winter feeling while living in the warmer desert. It is also a fun family activity if you want to kick off the holidays with a fun craft.

  1. Giftwrap

Not sure you want to take too much time decorating your windows? A simple, but fun trick is to just use gift wrap on your front windows. You can make it more detailed with ribbons and bows too.

  1. Cityscape

Another new trend is to use butcher paper and cut out a city scene with housetops or skyscrapers to line along the bottom of your window frame. It is a simple accent, but when the lights of your home shine through to the outside it creates a unique and stunning silhouette passersby won’t be able to help noticing.

  1. Window Painting

This is another great idea if you are looking for a simple, but unique way to decorate your windows this winter. You can draw anything from simple dots for snow to more elaborate options.

  1. Stars

As far as holiday traditions go, stars are a big part of many decorations. You can find affordable paper stars at most craft and party stores, and hang them in your windows for affordable holiday style.

  1. Christmas Lights

Can’t go wrong with this classic decoration. There are so many options to choose from now. Warm, cool, and multi-colored string lights. Maybe you prefer icicle lights, snowflake lights, or swirling projection lights. The only suggestion we have is you choose energy efficient LED lights, and make sure you don’t staple directly to the window frame.
