Window pictures for Christmas for a festive mood
The window pictures for Christmas not only make for the happy Christmas mood, but also give the house a beautiful, inviting look. As motifs, you can use the traditional symbols of the Christmas season – for example, snowflakes, reindeer, stars, Chrisbaumkugeln, the figure of Santa Claus, polar bears, angels, burning candles … The simplest option is to buy decorative stickers from a store and put them on the windowpane to stick. But if you have a little more time and like to tinker, you can also try to make window pictures for Christmas yourself – for example by cutting out the patterns according to a template. No matter which variant you prefer, your window pictures would also look magical in the evening if you place LED candles on the windowsill. It is advisable to ask at the store if there is a risk of fire if you let the candles “burn” for a long time.
Stage the window pictures
The window images for Christmas should also be set properly. To make this possible, you can also festively decorate the windowsill – for example, by decorating Christmas tree decorations, garlands, small gifts and sweets. If you prefer decoration made of natural materials, choose green branches, pine cones and winter flowers – for example Christmas cactus. But to make sure everything looks stylish, it’s important not to overdo it with decorations – you could, for example, just pick the windowpane or the bench as an accent when arranging.
