Garlands make great Christmas decoration, and they are very easy to use. You can hang them anywhere on the windows or the walls, and you can easily put them away after the Holidays are over. You can make your garlands too if you’re crafty. All it takes is some paper crafts to do it. Or you can get them cheap on sites like Etsy. The possibilities are endless, and it’s a brilliant decor idea.

Vinyl and String Lights

This idea is one of the classics. String lights in the window always create a very Christmasy mood. And if you add some vinyl (or paper) trees and other ornaments, it makes a brilliant Holiday scene. If you want to take it even further, you can create a tiny Christmas village on your window sill. That will take some crafts and thrift store shopping.

Ornament Balloons
