Decorate your windows for the holidays

Many people never think of decorating their WINDOWS for the holidays.   Here are some quick ideas for adding a bright touch of greenery to assembling shimmering strings of ornaments to give your windows an elegant holiday look in no time at all.

CLASSIC WREATH

FESTIVE SPARKLE

To create brilliant sparkle and shine, hang glass ornaments in front of your windows to catch and send shimmering light throughout your room.  String an ornament onto a length of ribbon, and attach the end of the ribbon into the wall or ceiling with a small nail or thumbtack.

RUSTIC DECOR

For nature-inspired decor that complements the natural textures of your window treatments, keep decorations simple and inspired by Mother Earth. Tie a pinecone with ribbon and hang it from your window frame.  Place a potted pine on a table with small gift boxes wrapped in neutral paper and a ribbon of holiday color.  Accent with anything you can find in nature such as twigs and branches.
