Get festive with Christmas window decorations
There are so many amazing ways to get your windows rocking a festive vibe; think hanging ornaments, garlands, lights and even wreathes hung from ribbons - they’re easy to suspend from your blinds and curtains (and you get double points if they can be seen from the outside)! Hang transparent glass ornaments to reflect the light and bounce reflections all over the room, drape twinkling lights across the pelmet or make a wreath or garland from craft paper and get as creative as you like.
Send a message to passer-bys
Use a white marker to write a cute Christmas message or greeting on the glass. When friends and family (or even passer-bys if your windows face the street) read it, they’re guaranteed to smile! Or if words aren’t your thing, you could draw stars, snow, Christmas trees, reindeer – whatever you like. Got kids? This a great one for them too – they’ll love being allowed to draw on the windows!
Bring the outdoors in
There’s something special about the look and smell of a real Christmas pine tree, but if you can’t get your hands on one of those (or you’re worried about keeping it alive) there are plenty of other options! Get that classic Christmassy smell wafting through your home with a dwarf lemon cypress – it’s a much more manageable size and smells just as amazing. Grab lots of festive greenery and place it on your window sills, or if flowers are more your style, buy a big bunch of seasonal native blooms and wildflowers, like the stunning King Protea, and pop them in a vase – they’ll even double as a stunning Christmas table centrepiece.
