Christmas Windows – Lights and Decoration Ideas

With Christmas just around the corner, you may be frantically searching for last-minute gift ideas, or you may have finished all your shopping and be putting your feet up before the big day. But when it comes to Christmas window decorations, there’s always more that can be done. Before any guests arrive, you could make your Christmas window display extra magical, with some special festive touches.

It’s never too late to get stuck into Christmas window decoration ideas. From fun festive lights to elegant festive décor, we’ve put together some ideas to help you create the perfect Christmas window. And if your windows are dressed with plantation shutters, even better! Shutters can elevate any Christmas window decorations, and it doesn’t take much to dress them for the festive season.

1. A themed Christmas window


If you are planning a theme for your indoor decorations, you could extend this to the windows of your property as well. Maybe you’ve chosen a dominant colour or a theme such as rustic. Try hanging some matching coloured baubles across your window; not only will they match your interior look, they will also reflect the light and create a lovely effect in your room. If you are thinking about a more rustic theme, why not buy a small wooden basket and decorate with fir branches, fir cones and stars made from wood or old wire. Tie some red and white chequered ribbon or material to finish the look. Place the basket on your Christmassy window ledge for everyone to admire.

2. Foraging for a naturally festive touch

If you like hunting in hedgerows and bringing the outdoors inside, pick some wintery foliage and create a stunning Christmas bouquet for your windows. The countryside is abundant with fir trees, fir cones, holly bushes that may even be adorned with holly berries, and other winter berries. To add a festive feel, you can spray certain pieces in silver to really make your display stand out. Or, instead of a bouquet why not create a Christmas wreath to hang at your window. The Good House Keeping website has a great step by step guide on how to make one: https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/home/craft-ideas/a20707684/diy-foraged-wreath/

3. Christmas lights window ideas

There’s nothing more inviting than twinkling lights at a window, especially during the festive season. From traditional strings of fairy lights to stars that cascade like a waterfall, there’s plenty of Christmas lights window ideas to choose from. Battery-operated candles have become more common and their effectiveness has improved over the years. If you like burning traditional candles why not choose festive scented ones. Yankee Candle have some wonderful Christmas scents including Winter Wonderland and Glittering Star! Make sure you place candles in safe areas and never leave them unattended.

4. Traditional Christmas window ideas

If you’d like to display a traditional nativity scene in your window, you can buy a set that will typically consist of a stable, baby Jesus in a manger, Mary, Joseph, shepherds, Wise Men, oxen, asses and of course, the star over the top of the stable. Some sets also come with Christmas lights for the window, which creates a truly stunning effect at night.

For those of you who would like to create a Christmassy look in your windows with as little fuss as possible, why not buy a can of artificial snow and some Christmas templates like snowmen, stars, snowflakes and reindeers. And if templates are too much why not just spray a simple greeting like Merry Christmas! This will create an elegant Christmas window display that is sure to impress your guests.
