Christmas is fast approaching and with the uncertain times we have come face to face with this year, we all are looking forward to being with loved ones. But as restrictions are still in place, preventing us from having festive gatherings, parties, and cosy nights in by the Christmas tree with our friends, we thought we would give you some festive décor ideas for your windows and doors! So, here are 4 inexpensive ways to spread Christmas cheer to neighbours and passers-by from the comfort and safety of your own home…

1. Transform your windows into a winter wonderland with paper snowflakes

This is a simplistic and easy way to add Christmas spirit to the exterior of your home. With lots of guides online on how to make the perfect paper snowflake, they can also be a fun activity for you and the kids to do! To perfectly finish the display with a frosty wonderland effect, add white snow spray around the edge of the window glass. Check out this Pinterest board for paper snowflake designs!

2. Wrap your door like a present with red ribbon and a big bow

This one may be a tad more intricate, but the results will give your home that extra festive ‘wow’ factor. There are some great online tutorials on how to tie a bow to your front door, but all you need is some thick ribbon, a cable tie, and scissors!

3. Turn your window into a Christmas party with glitter baubles

This one is perfect if you have a beautiful bay window, as the light will bounce off the baubles from various directions, giving your window the perfect party effect! Straightforward and easy to make, attach glitter baubles to ribbon using a glue gun and hang from the top of your window with a drawing pin, or a command hook.

For the ultimate festive display, you could even include some warm fairy lights so it can be admired during the dark December evenings

4. Create a traditional look with a homemade wreath hung on your door

A centuries-old tradition, wreaths are a sign of joy and everlasting life. Making your own wreath will allow you to completely customise the colours and decorative features used. Some like classical red hues and want to use berries and bows, whilst others prefer an autumnal colour palette, using dried oranges and cinnamon sticks as delicious decorative features.

To make your wreath particularly personalised to you, you can add an ornament that hangs from the bottom. This could be a letter, whether that be the letter of your name or family name, or a charming, customised bauble.
