Window decoration for the New Year 2020
Decorating a home is an important part of preparing for your childhood winter holidays. Window dressing will play a significant role in the New Year 2020, and designers recommend that they give priority to them. There are several reasons for this. According to Feng Shui, it is through the windows that beneficial energy enters the house and the more attractive they look, the more concentrated this stream. Thus, in the European tradition, it is customary to call favorable changes, prosperity and good luck for the year ahead.
Ideas for winter window decoration
It is advisable to decorate the entire New Year’s interior in one style so that it is perceived whole. Windows are no exception. It is important to decide whether they will be the main focus or play a supporting role. If there is a Christmas tree in the room, the main attention should be paid to it. And turn the remaining elements of the interior into a background that emphasizes the beauty and rich "outfit" of the festive tree. A few snowflakes or pendants with Christmas balls will be enough for the New Year window decoration.
You should also consider the illumination of the room. If it is oriented to the north or west and the sun in winter is very rare, plentiful decor on the windows is inappropriate. The lack of light will make the room dark and the festive mood even with the most spectacular decorations will be spoiled.
A simple and affordable way to create a winter mood is to add snow to the interior. Of course, man-made. Snowflakes of various shapes are made from paper, felt, cotton buds, matches, threads or pasta. But really unusual and bright they are obtained from glue. Even a child can make such a beauty.
Used PVA or, even better, hot glue. The latter gives a more convex beautiful pattern and a transparent texture, so you can not paint snowflakes. However, PVA products are considered more durable. So if you want to keep the decor and use it again after a year, it is better to take this type of glue.
You will also need:
- matte file for documents;
- gold and silver glitter;
- paper stencil with a picture of a snowflake.
We print out the pictures you like from the Internet or draw ourselves. The sheet is placed in a plastic file with a matte surface. If the material is glossy, PVA can slip and the snowflake will turn out uneven.
Now we “paint over” the printed image with glue, gently squeezing it out of the tube.
Pre-PVA needs to be kept in the refrigerator so that it thickens.
While the snowflake "has not grabbed", sprinkle it with glitter.
Let the product dry completely. If you want to speed up the process, you can put a leaf near the heating devices. But it’s better to be patient and wait a day until the PVA freezes completely. Then the product is guaranteed to be durable and even. The degree of drying of the glue is checked by a match. Finished jewelry should be solid.
With a wide brush, brush away the excess sparkles, and then carefully separate the snowflake from the file. To do this, just bend it. You can help yourself with a stationery knife or a toothpick.
The delicate beauty is slightly moistened on the back side and applied to the window glass. She will hold on tight and can easily be removed when the time comes.

Similarly, you can make other images, for example, Santa Claus in a sleigh, houses, a Christmas tree with toys and so on.
Frost draws ... toothpasteFrosty patterns turn windowpanes into enchanting paintings that you want to consider endlessly. But why wait for the icy breath of winter when you can draw yourself no worse? For magic, you will need stencils for New Year's-themed windows and regular toothpaste.
The printout printed on the printer is cut out with scissors or a clerical knife. Remember that the image on the glass will turn out silhouette, the edges are slightly smeared. Therefore, the stencil base must be very clear and expressive.
Wet the paper template with water and gently spread it, glue it on the window. Squeeze the toothpaste into a wide container and dilute it with water to the consistency of liquid sour cream. Only completely white varieties of the product are suitable. Best to take:
- "New pearls";
Around the stencils at some distance you can spray water from the spray gun. When applying toothpaste, these areas will turn out with a light gradient. We collect the diluted paste on an old toothbrush and, swiping the bristles with a finger, spray on the glass from a distance of about 30 cm. If you get too close, the drops will begin to drain.
Another way: apply a toothpaste with a piece of foam, so you can cover large surfaces. When the decorative coating dries, the stencil is carefully removed.
Those who can draw can paint pictures on windows without auxiliary means, dipping their brushes directly into toothpaste.
At the end of the holidays, washing the glass is not difficult.

Instead of toothpaste, you can use artificial snow.
Bright color pictures are made using stained glass paints. In their properties and appearance, they resemble factory silicone stickers.
Only materials for children's creativity are used. Professional stained glass paint is almost impossible to remove from glass.
You will also need:
- matte file for documents;
- beautiful and not very difficult coloring of the New Year theme;
The printout is put in a file. First, we draw the contour with a special black reserve, which is in the set for children's creativity. We wait 20 to 30 minutes until the composition has completely dried. Paint the inside of the picture.
Again let the composition dry. This will take at least 4 hours. Then we separate the picture from the file. If difficulties arise, the product must be placed in the refrigerator. The sticker is sticky and is attached to glass or any smooth surface without auxiliary means. It can be used repeatedly.

Figures cut out of paper - ejections belong to the most budgetary and at the same time stunning jewelry. From them you can create silhouette compositions, united by a common plot, which will occupy a whole window. But for those who are only getting acquainted with the art of paper cutting, it is better to limit themselves to small images at first. Because the work ahead is painstaking and long, if you want to get a decent result.
You will need:
- paper for printers;
- manicure scissors with bent ends, clerical (or even better mock-up) knife, adhesive tape;
- a self-healing mat or its replacement in the form of a sheet of plexiglass (fiberboard) or a silicone cutting board.
Let's make a cute angel figure. You can immediately make 4 identical protrusions and decorate the window glass in the corners. We print a stencil and mark with a felt-tip pen the lines along which we will make cuts. We fix the sheet with the image using adhesive tape on a solid basis.
Next is the actual cutting. Ideally, you need to work with a breadboard knife - it is compact, mobile, sharp and allows you to cut through both straight and rounded lines in one motion. But it is unlikely that for the sake of one craft someone will acquire a rather expensive professional tool.
Therefore, you can outline the cut with a clerical knife, and then refine the difficult places with nail scissors with bent ends. Naturally, before that, removing the product from the substrate. Conventional tailor scissors conveniently cut symmetrical jewelry that folds in half. For example, Christmas balls, bells or snowflakes.
Glue paper decor on glass with soapy water. We spread the tucks with a brush and apply, carefully straightening all the details. You can use not a solution, but simply a well-soaked soap. It should only be white.
It is better not to make too openwork products, they can break when glued.
