When decorating for Christmas, one of the best ways to create a holiday atmosphere is with a window display. Window displays can draw in customers and can be a great advertising tool for gift ideas and a way to present your Christmas decorations. Most displays require just a little imagination and time.

Christmas often reminds us of snow. Create a winter wonderland by making snowflakes from white paper and sticking them to the insides of your windows. Spray-on snow cleans up easily when it is sprayed on the bottoms of windows to look like snow that has fallen. You can also add white batting on the floor to give the appearance of fallen snow. Batting can be purchased at any fabric store. Trees can be decorated in packaged icicles or use a white tree to continue the snow effect.
Old Fashioned Christmas
Homemade ornaments can add a more personalised touch to your Christmas windows. Most crafts stores have ornament kits that allow you create your own ornaments. String popcorn to use instead of store bought garland. Attach ornament hooks to small toys and memorabilia and use instead of traditional ornaments. Place holly and mistletoe on tables and other flat surfaces to serve as a centrepiece. Candles can be used in the centre but you should never leave a lit candle unattended. Fill your windows with poinsettias and other red flowers and greenery. Flowers create an atmosphere of home.
Display a collection of ornaments or nativity scenes that come from different cultures around the world. You can purchase ornaments from places all over the world. If you are creative you can paint scenes on the ornaments from famous places around the globe. Use window paint to write Merry Christmas in many different languages or display a collection of international Santa Clauses.
Another way to decorate your business windows is to use your store merchandise. Wrap empty boxes of all shapes and sizes and use them as tables to display gift ideas. If your store sells Christmas decoration you can use your window to showcase your inventory. Use an easel to advertise store specials and write the prices in bright green or red. Use glass bowls or baskets to display Christmas ornaments.
