When you are sprucing up the house for Christmas, do not forget the windows: along with splendid front-door or porch displays, windows are one of the ideal methods to spread cheer to your neighbors and close friends. Get stencil and “frost” kits from your craft or hardware retailer and etch snowflakes, stars, Nativity scenes, animals such as deer or bears, or lettered greetings across the panes. Tack up a series of ribbons of diverse lengths across the window, then attach miniature ornaments, cutout stars, “gingerbread” homes, or even true decorated cookies any colors will do, also, from red, green, and white to purple, lime, and aqua. Illuminate a pane with a “net” of white miniatures surrounding a wreath, a star, or a snowflake design. And speaking of snowflakes — paper cutout snowflakes are easy and swift to make for immediate Christmas spirit!
Wreaths can be lighted or unadorned evergreen pine cones and bittersweet can accent the leading of a window frame. Generate a “window” on a strong wall with a frame filled with ornaments and greenery with a lavish red drapery, pair gold ornaments, white wreaths, or silver icicles to get a breathtaking effect. Heart-shaped “wreaths” hanging in a window convey a nation warmth — as do vibrant red apples strung on lengths of silvery ribbon trimmed with snowflakes and stars. Create a green wreath from feathers or tissue, trim with white or red ribbon, and you have got décor that can be place up year after year. Don’t forget candles: regardless of whether single lights in every window or groups of white, red, or green tapers, unadorned or inside etched glass, they’re a favored. Whatever your size window, use these photos for inspiration — and have entertaining!
