Festive Christmas Window Decorations 2023

Are you looking to decorate your home for the holidays the easy way? Try decorating your home’s windows with Christmas window decorations.

Christmas window decorations can feature small and large window stickers and decals, all the way to lighted-up figurines, to help prepare your home for the holidays this year.

Moreover, the gorgeous Christmas window decorations we found just for you are great for decorating your home indoors and outdoors.

However, before we show you the round-up of our most favorite Christmas decorations to adorn your windows, here’s why you should focus on your home’s windows when decorating for Christmas…

Why focus on windows when decorating for Christmas?

If you have big or wide windows at home, window Christmas decorations are just the perfect additions that will instantly elevate your home for the festive season.

They’re super quick and easy to apply, and if you want to go the extra mile, you can even have them customized to your liking!

Our favorite Christmas window decorations are easy-to-apply window stickers or cling (you’ll see several below!). 

And there are loads of festive window stickers that you can find online, but the best part is that they’re also very affordable – we’re talking as little as $15 in some cases!


Things to consider when decorating your home’s windows.

Home is where every square inch is merry and bright.

There are many Christmas window decorations available, and top considerations will vary depending on the type of decoration you choose.

However, here are a few things to consider when decorating your home’s windows this holiday season…

  1. Christmas lights, stars, and other novelty items are often corded. So you’ll likely need an outlet nearby or an extension cord.
  2. It’s okay to hang them outside, as long as there’s a cover from the rain. For example, Pre-lit artificial wreaths are usually battery-operated.
  3. Other options, such as LED Christmas candles, stained-glass ornaments, or decals, require little to no preparation.
  4. Window decorations can last for many seasons. Most come with mounting materials, and some even have storage boxes.
  5. Pre-lit wreaths are the most expensive, followed closely by lighted decorations.
  6. You can get decals for as low as $15 if you are on a tight budget and need to decorate all your windows in less than a day.

Now let’s look at these magical window Christmas decorations ideas and decor that’ll put a smile on even Santa’s face this year!
