This holiday season, we could all use some extra joy. A great way to spread holiday cheer (other than by “singing loud for all to hear”) is by decorating your home for others to see. Your windows offer the perfect framed canvas to bring your inspiration to life! If you are not sure where to begin, take a look at our window decorating suggestions for some inspiration.

Snowy Window

1. A Chance of Snow this Christmas

The likelihood that Jacksonville will see any snow this holiday season is about zero. However, your windows are the perfect backdrop for a cheery winter scene. Spray snow is the easiest way to create a frosty look that you can use as a starting point. Wipe away an oval shape in the center to showcase candles, an evergreen sprig, or a holiday wreath.

2. Dress Up Windows in Greenery

Go for a classic look by framing the exterior of your windows with garlands of fresh evergreen. Add some bright red bows for a pop of color! If you have a window box, it’s a great place to display festive greenery. Hanging matching wreaths in front-facing windows can also add cohesion and festivity to your home’s look.


3. Candy Cane Lane

For those with a sweet tooth, the holidays are the perfect time to not only eat delicious desserts, but to decorate with them. Try hanging candy canes, or creating your own original gumdrop backdrop. You can purchase decorative candy ornaments, like the ones pictured, from many craft shops. Get creative with picturesque peppermint frames for your windows.


4. Brighten Up with Icicle Lights

Icicle lights, especially those with soft white bulbs, can add a warm glow to your windows. What’s more, hanging them behind some white sheer curtains can create the appearance of falling snow. Stick to LED lights to save energy and keep windows cool.


5. Complement Your Shutters 

You can complement your window shutters with yards of lush garlands. Adding brightly colored ornaments, lights, and ribbons can help balance and brighten the deep evergreen hues.


6. Ornament Adornment

Cascading ornaments are an easy DIY option that can add the color and vibrance you need to make your holiday décor pop. Combine with other decorations - like lights, pine boughs, or ribbons - for extra panache.


7. Put on a Show

For those less inclined to tackle DIY projects, never fear: Draw those shades and delight neighbors with a hi-tech holiday display. Just because you're not crafty, doesn't mean you have to skip on fun holiday window décor! Your house will be the talk of the town when you take a high-tech approach to decorating. If you have a home projector, you can use white shades or curtains as the perfect backdrop for videos playing in your windows. Set classic holiday cartoons or scenes of Santa leaving presents under the tree on loop to captivate your neighbors.
