Holiday Window Decorating Tips & Ideas

Well, browsing Pinterest can’t hurt! But for your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of window decorating ideas that shouldn’t require too much time or money. Consider:


  • Wreaths
  • Garland and/or pine garland
  • Glass ball ornaments
  • Candy canes
  • Pinecones (works especially well in rustic homes)
  • Paper snowflakes
  • Stockings
  • Paper messages (“Happy Holidays,” “Season’s Greetings,” etc.)

Placing on window sills:

  • Small, fake Christmas trees
  • Menorahs
  • Candles
  • Pine garland
  • Paper pine trees

Keep in mind: If you want to hang objects, it’s usually as easy as some ribbon or pins in window treatments. If you have a curtain rod, use the ribbon to let various objects—pinecones, candy canes, wreaths, etc.—hang down.

We also recommend cleaning your windows before decorating them so they look their best.
