One of our favourite holidays to celebrate at Stouffville Glass is coming up and we’re starting to prepare our office and homes for the holiday madness with some decorating and music to get us in the spirit.
Below are some of our favourite window décor inspirations we’ve seen over the years:
1. Let It Snow
This is a really simple and fun DIY you could do with your kids or just while sitting around watching a show one evening.
What You’ll Need: fishing wire or thin thread, a pack of cotton balls or marshmallows (if you’re not worried about any pets munching on them).
2. Light it Up
This is a really easy way to brighten up your home from the inside and outside, if you’re not keen on getting on a ladder and putting up the lights outside your house. You can be as creative as you wish hanging them in a cascading format or around the perimeter of the window.
What You’ll Need: Any package of a string lights will do, tape or 3M adhesive hooks
3. Not Just for Trees Ornaments
This idea is handy and practical, if you have some extra ornaments lying around that don’t fit on the tree, you can hang some ornaments with string or ribbon in multi-levels or create a unique shape like a Christmas tree.
What You’ll Need: Unused or ornaments or purchase inexpensives ones from the dollar store, ribbon, string, tape
4. Fake It til You Make it Snowflakes
If you’re feeling a little more crafty, you may want to experiment with this window décor project, which can be easily applied to other parts of your home or gift wrapping. Home decor and DIY blog, We Live Happily Ever shows a step-by-step on how to make snowflakes applications for your windows.
What You’ll Need: A glue gun, parchment paper, paper and pen for stenciling your snowflakes, glitter (optional)
5. Dress with all the Trimmings
We like the idea of bringing a bit of the outdoor inside, which was what DIY blogger Lookie What I Did! inspired us with the mini project below. You can exercise a little more creativity with this type of project, in terms of using different types of trinkets or ornaments you’ d like to hang off your garland.
What You’ll Need: garland or real tree branches from your backyard, ornaments, holiday trinkets, floral wire or fishing wire, 3M tape
