Winter Window Decor Ideas for a Festive Home

3 min read

Decorating your home for the holidays is one of the most highly anticipated traditions for many families, and it’s the perfect way to spread cheer to your neighbors and guests. By sprucing up your window displays, you can turn your interior and exterior into a winter wonderland, increasing curb appeal and creating a cozy environment in your living spaces. 

Explore our idea guide below where you’ll find options catering to every budget, style and skill level, ensuring your Toledo home is ready for the season.

Classic Holiday Window Decor

Wreaths and Garlands

If a traditional look is more your style, consider adding wreaths and garlands around your windows. Wreaths can be placed inside or outside—it’s up to you based on your personal preference. Adding red bows to your window wreaths creates a timeless look and has been a standing tradition of many for years. Prefer a natural look? A simple wreath with red or white berries is still seasonal and festive. If having both wreaths and garlands around your windows appears too busy, consider adding garlands around your entry door instead.

Candles and Candleholders

Bringing light to your windows is an old nod to December’s dark nights. Battery-operated window candles and candleholders offer a traditional yet elegant touch to your home for your family and those passing by. This is an inexpensive way to dress up your windows, and many window candles come with a timer so you don’t have to walk around your entire home to turn them on and off.

Clings and Stickers

For a budget-friendly alternative, consider festive window clings and stickers. They’re easy to apply and don’t leave any residue behind once the season ends. This provides a simple and mess-free way to involve your children in the decorating process without worrying about breaking fragile ornaments or keepsakes. Additionally, there are clings and stickers available for nearly every holiday throughout the year.

Creative DIY Window Decor

Handcrafted Snowflakes

All it takes are paper and scissors to craft distinctive snowflake decorations. By folding paper and making various cuts with different patterns and shapes, you can create unique snowflake designs to adorn your windows. Don’t fret if your snowflakes aren’t perfectly symmetry—after all, no two snowflakes are identical.

Mason Jar Luminaries

Painting, filling and illuminating mason jar luminaries add charm to your holiday decor. For a snowy scene, mix white or translucent glitter and Epsom salt in the jar and decorate with a bow, twine and a small piece of greenery. You can also create your own design by painting the outside. To avoid a fire hazard, we recommend using flameless tealights to illuminate the jar instead of a traditional candle.

Personalized Window Art

Unleash your creativity with hand-painting or crafting your own window art. Turn your window into a snowy scene, a Christmas tree or a gingerbread house with paint, colored construction paper or other decorations. You could also paint on wax paper to allow light through your festive scene for faux stained glass!

Nature-Inspired Window Decor

Exterior window boxes showcase rustic beauty with pinecones and evergreen boughs. To tie it all together, consider adding a holiday bow or a lantern. For the interior, incorporate natural elements like snowy branches and twigs into your window displays.

Modern and Minimalist Window Decor

Hang geometric ornaments and shapes in your window to add a simple, modern touch in your Toledo home. For an understated yet ethereal look, string up Scandinavian-inspired window star lights for soft illumination. Keep the minimalist design going by incorporating monochromatic window art in your living room.
