Window Dressing

When it comes to dressing your outdoors for Christmas, we often overlook the window. Last year, very last minute I decorated mine with swag like display, this year I hope to be more organised and make it even better.

If you are not confident enough to make a swag, what you can do is use a window box.

It is so easy to do, just fill your window box with something to keep it weighed down on your windowsill. Use rocks or old bricks, if it has soil in it left over from your summer bedding plants leave this in, just scoop a bit out.

All you need to do is collect evergreen foliage, if you get a real Christmas tree, nine time out of ten we have to trim some branches off the bottom. You can use these, just arrange them in the window box, and add trailing ivy, conifer, box, skimmia or holly. Any evergreen foliage you can forage or cut from your garden.

Literally just stick them in there so they don’t fall out. Fill it up as much as you can, you don’t want to see any soil or rocks.Create a triangle shape keeping the foliage taller in the middle, its better if you add a bit of height and then decorate it as you want. If you want to keep it all natural, use berries, pinecones, seed heads, feathers, dried fruit,cinnamon sticks the list is endless.

Or if you want more bling, use some Christmas baubles, or decorations that you are not using, just thread the bauble with some wire and tie it on to a bit of your foliage.

(Just make sure they will last in the rain ). Add some of those fairy lights, ribbon or fake snow. Whatever you do it will be fab x

Give it a try and please send me your photos if you do.
