In our house, we’re the kind of DIY decor enthusiasts who love using any holiday or season change as an opportunity to decorate every inch and surface available. Now that the snow is about to fall, we’ve been in the mood to get a head start on a bit of homemade Christmas decor but, honestly, some of the only space left for bits and bobbles is in the windows! That’s why we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for pretty, wintery window decor pieces that we might try our hand at making.
Are you feeling just as enthusiastic as we are, if not more, about the idea of making some DIY Christmas window decor this season? Check out these 15 fantastic ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!
1. Tips and tricks for decorating your windows both inside and outside
Are you actually totally enamoured with the basic concept of decorating your windows, but you’re torn between doing so on the inside, the outside, or both and you’re having trouble choosing which styles of decor might suit your window’s structure? Then we’d suggest starting with this awesome resource from Improvenet that’s full of all kinds of basic window decor tips and tricks!
2. Ribbon and hanging glass balls window
This pictures actually shows you an interesting way to create a beaded curtain-like display in your doorway, but we know that our front and side doors would never let such a setup survive. That’s why we actually adapted this awesome mobile-like idea for our front window instead! You can still follow the basic instructions on Hometalk for stringing up your Christmas balls; just anchor them to your window frame instead of the door jam!
3. Tissue paper stained glass window ornaments
Are you actually feeling pretty intent on getting your kids involved in about as much of the holiday decor crafting you plan to do this year as you can? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Simply Today Life did some classic tissue paper “stained glass” DIY in order to create these adorable Christmas bobble shaped window hangers in a way that’s nice and easy.
4. Hanging pinecone Christmas window
Do you actually really adore the idea of making some kind of mobile-esque hanging decor but you’re just not sure that the glass ornaments design you saw above is quite the aesthetic you’re looking for? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how The Do-It-Yourself Mom did something similar but using pinecones for a more rustic, wintery woodland feel instead!
