How To Add A Festive Feel To Your Windows And Doors

How to decorate your windows and doors for Christmas
Are you in a Christmassy mood yet? If not, decorating your home should get you excited about the big day.

Get into the festive spirit and pull out all the stops, as many are doing after this particularly tough year – we could all do with some Christmas cheer, that’s for sure. 

Installing your Christmas tree in the front room is the starting point and then you can concentrate on giving your windows and doors a fun festive look.

Door AND window wreaths

You can’t leave your front door bare at this time of year. It’s almost obligatory to have a pretty door wreath displayed on it, which will charm your guests when they turn up for Christmas dinner.

And, how about having a few window wreaths too? Our American friends are big into window wreaths and you could start a trend in this country. 

They lean towards window wreaths with pretty red bows on them, a very classy style that will gain attention on the outside and inside.

Fairy lights, lanterns and candles

The houses that stand out most at Christmas are those that are brightly and beautifully lit. 

Illuminate your place with battery-powered lights draped around the perimeter of your windows, lanterns on the doorstep and an advent candle in the front window. 

You can do it without a reliance on electricity so that it doesn’t add to your energy bill and these lights will create a wonderfully cosy atmosphere.

Christmas ornaments

Boxed with your Christmas tree will probably be lots of Christmas ornaments, some of which may have been done by the kids at school. 

Perhaps there’s a clay snowman in there or a Nativity scene that’s been passed down through the generations. Whatever you’ve got, they could be proudly displayed on your windowsills. 

For a festive plant to put on show, buy some poinsettias and pop them in some vases – its star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolise the Star of Bethlehem.

Come on, don’t be a Scrooge. Snazz up those windows and doors for Santa – he’ll ho-ho-ho love it.
