Mini Christmas trees can be placed in woven bags or vases. Candles are placed on saucers or one large tray. To make the composition look complete, “sprinkle” the edges of the glasses with artificial snow. The window sill that you decide to decorate must be completely open and clearly visible. In order not to clutter up the window, unnecessary things must be removed..

What are vytynanka?

This intricate name came to us from Old Slavic. This is the name of the plot paper stencils. Unlike snowflakes, the patterns in them do not repeat, so they are cut out using a template and a knife or nail scissors. Although, however, templates for protrusions can be bought ready-made.

On the glass, you can create a whole thematic composition of paper, for example, Santa Claus racing in a sleigh, or figurines of fairy-tale characters dancing by the Christmas tree. Paper products can be voluminous. Of course, in the center of the festive round dance should be a dog, symbolizing the arrival of the New Year 2018. Figures can be left white or painted with varnish or paints, covered with liquid snow, toothpaste, etc..

To make the composition look natural, more voluminous images are pasted in the lower part of the window – snowdrifts, houses, Christmas trees. At the top there are falling snowflakes, stars, Christmas balls.

It is completely optional to glue the figures on the glass. Soap or paste, of course, easily leaves the glass, but you still have to wash them. Vytynanka can be simply sewn onto a translucent tulle.

Illumination of a panorama made of paper

Paper installations will look much more impressive if you illuminate them with a garland or LED strip. To do this, the figures must be slightly moved away from the glass, and the space between them and the window must be filled with glowing bulbs. Do not forget only about caution – the paper should never come into contact with them..

Backlighting will give the decor more magic and a sense of celebration

From whatman paper or white cardboard, you can create a whole magical city with one- or multi-storey houses and figures of passers-by. It is easier to print paper compositions on a printer, and then carefully cut out with a clerical knife..

After the figures are glued, a light bulb is placed inside each of them. The fairytale city on the windowsill is ready!

Decor with electric garlands

With the help of garlands, you can create any image – a Christmas tree, a house, a wreath, a crescent moon, a star, figurines of animals or fairy-tale characters, etc. You can simply decorate the curtains with glowing magic lights, creating a feeling of drapery shimmering with colorful lights. The garland in the form of a net or suspensions looks great. You can also attach it along the contour (sides and top) of the window..

There are never too many garlands

It is not easy to arrange an ordinary linear garland in the form of complex compositions. For this, it is better to buy:

  • duralight construction in the form of a flexible glowing cord; using it, you can easily make inscriptions and volumetric images;
  • garland in the form of a grid;
  • LED fringe: it is more suitable for creating curtains;
  • a garland-fireworks made of dynamic light structures, externally, the product is very similar to a real fireworks.

One garland can do a lot

You can also make a Christmas wreath out of a garland. If you fill a large transparent container made of crystal or glass with LED bulbs – a large bottle or vase – then you will get an unusual magic lantern. For this, small battery-powered bulbs are more suitable. Put a lantern on the windowsill – it will undoubtedly become a highlight of the New Year’s decor.

Volumetric wire figures decorated with a garland look very unusual. Flexible metal can be used to make a snowman, a deer, or even a whole team of reindeer with a sleigh, a Christmas tree, a funny dog, Santa Claus with a Snow Maiden, or recreate a snow-covered town gleaming with lights. Put the resulting composition on the window – let it please your loved ones and passers-by on New Year’s holidays.

Hangers on windows

A real snowfall outside the window can be simulated using suspensions made of cotton balls of different sizes. They are strung on a fishing line or strong nylon thread and covered PVA glue – this way they will keep their shape better. For greater effect, cotton snowflakes alternate with paper ones. At the ends of the threads, you can fasten snow-white figurines of birds or fairy-tale characters.

You can also hang Christmas tree decorations on strong threads. In this case, it is better to use plastic ones – if you accidentally hit one of them, it will not break if it falls. Attach a small satin ribbon bow at the top of each toy for a stylish Christmas decoration.

Curtains made of beads

Snow-white beads strung on a fishing line can replace ordinary curtains during the holidays. In nature, the largest drops are always located at the very bottom. The same principle must be used when creating curtains – the smallest beads are suspended higher, “drops” of medium size in the center, and the largest, as if ready to fall, are at the bottom..

To create the impression of ice floes shimmering in the sun, you can add a few colored stones to the white beads. Each of the threads is carefully attached to the curtain. The magic curtains are ready!

Decorative film

Stained glass films with a New Year theme can be purchased in advance by choosing a drawing with the general style of the room decoration and your taste. It can be snowflakes, icicles, flowers covered with ice, New Year’s patterns, figurines, etc. It is better to place them in the lower part of the glass so that sunlight in the daytime can freely enter the room. Otherwise, there will be constant twilight in the room..

The top paper layer is removed from the film, and the pattern is gently applied to the surface and leveled, removing air bubbles. Before gluing stained-glass windows, the glass must be wiped – dust smeared over the surface of the picture will not look very aesthetically pleasing.

Decorations from paper garlands

The simplest garland, made with a chain of paper rings and hanging at the top of the window, looks too trite. After all, it can be composed of any shapes: white or colored snowflakes, stars, flags, contours of fir cones, rowan bunches, hares, dogs, snowmen or Christmas trees.

The garland looks original, assembled in the form of miniature New Year’s gifts, trimmed with tiny bows. It can also be made in the form of mittens, in which it is customary to put gifts in European countries and the countries of the Old World for the New Year. Get creative and make your own unique garland.

Figures for her can be printed on a printer or bought ready-made. Even if you didn’t find the garlands. Pick your favorite single compositions and fasten them together by stringing.

Christmas tree or figurines made of snowflakes

From the familiar paper snowflakes, which have long served as a New Year’s decoration, you can create whole pictures, for example, a Christmas tree. It will look very unusual and original. You can glue jewelry to glass with laundry soap or paste made from flour – they can be washed very easily. Just do not make the paste too thick, otherwise it will be inconvenient to use it – in consistency it should resemble office glue.

To create a Christmas tree, you need to cut snowflakes of different sizes from paper. First, the largest of them are laid out on the glass, then they are supplemented with medium-sized snowflakes and finally the drawing is finished with the smallest figures. To enhance the effect, place falling snowflakes of different sizes around the tree. Fasten the garland around the perimeter of the window.

From small snowflakes and medium-sized snowflakes, you can also make up the simplest figures of animals – the hero of the New Year’s celebration of 2018 – a funny dog, as well as hares, polar bears or other animals having fun around the New Year’s snow-white tree, birds, etc. They can be simply cut out of paper and stick next to the tree.

Snowflakes, painted white with a spray can, are hung on thin threads or decorative beads of various lengths on the window. Such snowflakes covered with mother-of-pearl enamel look very elegant. You can dip them in powdered sugar, salt, semolina, having previously covered the product with PVA glue. However, you can paint them, but leave them cream.

Snowflakes made from pasta are decorated with small bows (you can use not only fabric, but also packing tape), rhinestones, beads, etc. The finished compositions are decorated in the form of suspensions or garlands on the windows. Snowflakes fixed on thin threads can be combined with cotton wool.

Drawings using stencils

Prepare paper stencils suitable for the subject (it is easier to use ready-made computer drawings) and use them to create unusual patterns on the glass. You can use whatever your imagination tells you – snowmen, drawings of Santa Claus flying in a sleigh, a funny dog ​​hurrying to wish your guests a Happy New Year 2018, or stories from children’s fairy tales.

To make the drawing clear and not smeared when coloring, the stencil must fit snugly against the glass. To do this, it is well moistened with water, and then shaken off the drops. So that the compositions do not shade the window too much, only a few large drawings are placed in the center, and the main patterns are placed on the top and bottom of the glass. You can draw with toothpaste or white gouache slightly diluted with water..

Christmas wreaths on the windows

It is better to make a wreath on the window from artificial spruce branches – otherwise they will crumble.
