New Year is not only a festive table and a bright picture on the TV screen. This is a warm homely atmosphere, gifts under the tree and waiting for a miracle. Creating a festive mood with your own hands is easy - just decorate the windows, which immediately turn your home into a fairytale castle. We have collected several ways to decorate the windows, choose the best and get to work!
Many people remember how in the childhood by the New Year they painted snowmen on glasses with the help of toothpaste or even gouache paints. Decorating the smooth surface of windows with pictures is very simple, it is important to choose the right tool and paint. We will tell about several options of drawing drawing.
Sponge and toothbrush
This method is not new, it is still remembered by our mothers. You will need a toothpaste diluted with water, a brush or sponge for washing dishes, as well as a stencil with a Christmas theme. You can prepare your own templates - find suitable pictures online, print them and cut out of paper with a knife or sharp scissors. Stencils need to be applied in the selected place and distribute the paste on their slots. Instead of a paste, you can use tooth powder, diluted with water to the state of liquid sour cream.
Glue, film and some patience
This method allows you to make stickers on the glass itself. In order to create the figures, you will need PVA glue, a film-file and a pattern from paper. The picture should be attached to the file and its outlines should be glue. The glue should dry for 10-12 hours, and only then the finished motif can be removed from the film and pasted on the glass. The stickers created in this way are perfectly attached to a smooth surface and have an unusual convex relief. If the sticker does not fit well on the glass - you need to lubricate it with water.
If you do not like the idea of sticking anything on the glass, the windows for the New Year can be decorated with festoons. This method also gives a festive mood. The main thing - to choose the type of garlands and beautifully fasten them to the windows.
Cotton ball garland
You can make a cute garland with your own hands from simple and cheap materials. Need to take a thin fishing line or a strong white thread. From the usual medical cotton wool roll ball and strung it on the fishing line. Then do the next one, put the fishing line back on. In addition, each ball is preferably separated from the neighboring with the help of nodules. We need to make several such decorations. The length of each garland of balls can be different - the threads with a length equal to the height of the window, or slightly shorter, look spectacular. Then fasten the garland on a rope, stretched between the slopes of the window or on the eaves.
Mini-garlands of bulk snowflakes or Christmas balls
On the New Year, children are taught to cut and glue snowflakes from paper in schools and kindergartens. You can make several such snowflakes with your own hands and hang each on a thin line, preferably of different lengths. It is easy to fix these decorations in the window openings - they can be hung on a rope, or you can fix them directly on the cornice. Similarly, you can hang Christmas balls or cones on long threads. Such pendants look very elegant and do not require complex preparation.
The farther away the garlands are from dark glasses, the more effective this decoration will look. A certain panoramic effect will turn out, which will create a festive and slightly mystical atmosphere.
Garlands of light bulbs
And by the New Year, you can highlight the window with colorful lights. Today there are not only standard garlands for sale, but also products in the form of a grid with light bulbs. This "mat" is easy to stretch to the entire window opening. However, remember that the light from the windows will be clearly visible from the street.
This is a new way to decorate windows; it will allow you to create incredible panoramas with your own hands right on the windowsill. However, this method takes time to prepare. You will need scissors, glue and several sheets of thick landscape paper that you need to glue together. Get two strips equal to the length of your windowsill. Then you need to choose a stencils with a festive pattern and put them on paper. Patterns in the form of a forest of fir trees of different heights, Christmas houses with slots or snowmen will do. Cut decoration better in the form of a continuous ornament.
You do not always want to come up with some complex designs, cut stencils. To brightly celebrate the New Year and create a festive mood, it is not necessary to spend a lot of time preparing the entourage. Sometimes it is enough to decorate the window opening with the available materials. For example, you can put on the window sill a small herringbone, a figure of Santa Claus and a candle. And you can build your own composition of branches, candles and Christmas balls.
