There are a few decorations at Christmas that I adore. The window Christmas decorations and the light up outdoor decorations are among my favorites. Just down the road from where I live, there is a boulevard that is renowned for their Christmas decorations. Each year the local council advertises ‘Christmas on the boulevard” and mountains of people of all ages walk the boulevard which takes about 1/2 an hour one way, or drive at a snail’s pace to see what decorations people have used. There are window Christmas decorations, flashing Christmas lights, blow up Santas or in some of the wealthier homes with big windows or double storey, they have giant Christmas Statues.
Even though it is summer here at Christmas, where I live, we still use things such as Christmas window frosting, not just at home but shops do too.
There are a few things worth considering when looking at getting window Christmas Decorations. And I have listed 5 things to think about before you buy. I have also chosen three of the best window Christmas decorations that I think are worth getting.
- How big are your windows? You need Christmas decorations that will fit your windows.
- What is the style of your window? Is it little squares with frames or large pane windows. Knowing this can give you the option to put, for example, 4 little window decorations in 4 little window panes. You don’t really want to put a big light up santa in a 4 pane window.
- Do you want a light up window decoration? If so, will you run a lead to a power outlet or will be be battery operated?
- What is the theme? Are you going with Christmas angels or one theme for each window? Consider how you want to decorate your windows.
- The size of your Christmas decorations. You don’t want something big that you need to put up on your own if you don’t have someone to help. Also, don’t make the window decorations seem proportionately out compared to the size of the window.
It is hard to go past the light up Christmas decorations but it is nice to vary it. You an always frost your window or use Christmas stencils then use the light up Christmas ornaments for outdoors. It will depend on what designs you had in mind, the size of your house, your yard and your windows, how much time or help you have and power options.
The first Christmas decoration I have provided, which is the snowflake, is lovely as it is simple, elegant and easy to put up. It is also inexpensive, so if you are on a budget, these are ideal.
The window curtain icicle lights I have chosen for you can be used outdoors, indoors or on a wall. My preference is to use them outdoors but you have the option to use them on other places as I have said. Also, you can use these for other occasions such as Birthdays or outdoor anniversaries, or even Weddings.
What I like about the light up Christmas decorations is that these days they save more on power because of the LED option. The icicle lights as the third option, can also be linked together for a different effect. These ones work well with a larger pane window and although they are not as cheap as the first snowflake option, they are worth getting. You could also vary it by putting the single snowflake in one window and these icicle lights in the next and interchange.
There are so many ideas and windows are a superb way to decorate your house for Christmas.
