Festive times call for festive measures. You’ve got some great, energy-saving blinds — now dress them up for the holidays.
For tall windows and doors, create a curtain of ribbon and ornaments. You can buy ornaments in packs or try paper cutouts, snowflakes, candy canes, or stars. There are plenty of sparkling decorations that can be strung together. You can even make your own “gingerbread” ornaments! Use a faux tree garland as a valance to hang your ornaments from
String lights glow beautifully under a thin curtain and are a great addition to the exterior of your home without taking all the time to put up outdoor lights. These days you can find string lights in almost any shape, whether it’s simple stars or shaped like snowmen. These lights will add that magical wintery glow to any room in your house.
Got a steady hand? Use a window marker to draw your own designs right on the glass! Snowflakes, ornaments, and small winter scenes are popular choices. Remember to choose a color that stands out from your curtains or blinds.
Tired of seeing the same green wreaths on every door and window? Try something unique! Small candy canes glued together at different angles make a fun (and tasty) window decoration. Or modernize your wreath by gathering your own twigs, tying it with twine and mixing in gold, silver, bronze or rose gold painted berries and leaves. Your wreath doesn’t even need to be Christmas-style, make a winter-themed one with 3D stars and grey or blue ribbons. Just make sure that whatever style wreath doesn’t scratch your window-pane.
Traditional meets current. Velvet is extremely popular these days and is a perfect material to use when sprucing up your home for the holidays. It’s thick enough to keep out extra chill that makes it through the windows and it’s quite festive.
