So Easy! Simple & Sweet Holiday Window Decorations

Holiday decorating doesn't have to be a massive affair, with tinsel, trees and glitter (although that can be nice too sometimes). Sometime small gestures feel more heartfelt and in keeping with the season. Here are some pretty ways to dress your windows that are festive, yet simple.

Above, solve two problems at once when you string up Christmas cards with some twine and clothespins. Country Living decorates a window, and found a way to display holiday greetings.

Above, IKEA spray painted some cookie cutters gold and hung them from a branch in the window (also lead image above). So easy!

Cut out paper in your favorite shape, using a store-bought stencil if you need to, and stick them on the glass. This simple village, from Marie Claire Maison, looks great in white.

Of course, white twinkle lights are about as easy as it gets, and can be left up throughout the entire winter (or year)! Helen of Kindred Rose strung some around the periphery of her studio window, as photographed by Alun Callender.

Waldorf-inspired paper stars appear almost entirely translucent when held up to the light, which makes them a beautiful and timeless option for holiday windows. These were found on Etsy, but you can make you own with available tutorials.

If you feel comfortable going freehand, buy a white pen and create your own design or holiday message. This window was made by Selina Lake for Hearst Magazines.

If you have a large wall of windows, hang a series of simple wreaths at various heights. Femina used juniper, olive branches, eucalyptus, silk pine and boxwood.

Or, string long strands a different garland across, as in this photoshoot styled by Petra Bindel for Elle Decoration.
