If it’s not snowing outside, it can ‘snow’ inside. Just hang snowflake ornaments from twigs and recreate the magical feeling of snowfall.

You can even see the snowflakes at night, thanks to these LED candles. They last for ages and are a safe option too.

Wintry weather means you can’t spend so much time outdoors. So get cosy inside and bring the outside in by decorating your window with a decorated branch and miniature spruce trees.

Attach the branch to the curtain rod using a little string or twine. We opted to continue the natural theme with these wooden ornaments. But you can add handmade leaves, pictures or even leave the branch bare.

Bring a little twinkle to overcast skies with the help of some golden Christmas tree ornaments.

If you use an extendable shower curtain rail inside the window frame, you can hang ornaments so they don’t get in the way of the curtains. We’ve attached the decorations using fishing line, so they appear to float. And they are really easy to put up and take down. So you can reuse this window decoration for all kinds of special occasions, not just for Christmas.
