I have an easy Christmas window box idea you are going to love! I was behind on my outdoor Christmas decorating, and my window boxes usually take a ton of time to create. NOT this year!!
I have four window boxes on the front of my house. My husband and daughter are in charge of the outdoor lights, and they will put lights all around the windows. I should have purchased white chord Christmas lights, so that the green chord didn’t stand out against the white window frames in the daytime. Oh well, I’ll fix that next year!
How to Create this Christmas Window Box Idea
I used artificial pine and pine cone swags to decorate the window boxes.
I found these small metal floral hooks at the craft store. You want to push the hooks pretty far down into the dirt.
Most, artificial swags have a round metal hook at the top where they can be hung on a door hanger or command hook. Simply slide the round hook onto the silver hook.
Next, grab your second swag and attach it and push it down towards the bottom of the metal hook.
Time to Make a Bow
Since I already have a wreath with a red ribbon hanging on my window, I decided to use a burlap color ribbon, and a brown ribbon to make my bow. Attach your bow with floral wire directly to the hook. If you don’t know how to make a bow, here is my easy video:
Adding the Ornaments
Next, I attached two large, and one medium shatter proof ornaments with floral wire.
Lastly, attach your ornaments to the metal hook, straighten your ornaments, bow, and bow tails, and you are done! How easy is that? Love it!
