Purchase some smaller artificial Christmas trees and put them in your window box for the holidays. Artificial trees can be reused every year which will save money on decorating your window box. Put some lights on your tiny Christmas trees, and some garlands for additional colour.

Santa Scene

Your window box does not necessarily have to be used for plants during the holidays. Get a Santa Claus figurine in his sleigh and all of the reindeer, and create a Santa scene in your window box.

Pinecones

Pinecones can withstand the winter weather, and they would make good decorations for your window box. Spray paint enough pinecones silver and gold to fill your window box, and then place white Christmas lights among the pinecones to make them stand out at night.

Stockings

Purchase hooks with spring-loaded openings and put them along the bottom of your window box. Then hang out Christmas stockings to decorate your box. The spring-loaded openings are to prevent the stockings from blowing away. You could also hang Christmas wind socks on your window box.

Evergreen and Holly

You can purchase evergreen tree branches and red-berried holly branches from your local nursery. Line the outside of your window box with the evergreen branches, and then place the holly branches at regular intervals to add some colour.

Gift Boxes

Fill gift boxes with heavy stones, and then wrap the boxes in Christmas wrapping paper. You may want to double or maybe even triple wrap the gifts to withstand the elements. Place a Christmas bow on each gift, and then place the gifts inside your window box.

Wrap The Box

One of the simplest ways to decorate your window box for Christmas is to wrap the box itself in Christmas wrapping paper, and then finish the look with a large, red Christmas bow.
