You can simply put up snowflakes, and you can give free rein to fantasy and create a fabulous New Year's story on the window.
For the manufacture of vytynanok need such materials:
- White thick paper (or drawing pattern)
- Small scissors
- Stationery (or mock) knife
- Cutting mat or plywood board
- Мыльный (или на основе клея ПВА) раствор
Узоры можно нарисовать самому или скачать и распечатать уже готовые шаблоны.
Самый главный инструмент в этом творчестве – нож. Он должен быть хорошо заточенным, с узким концом — так удобнее вырезать мелкие детали. Для более крупных элементов – используйте маленькие ножницы.
Start working with smaller ones, then move on to larger details. Last cut out the contour of the vytnanki.
If there are straight lines in the selected pattern, use the ruler - it will be neater and more beautiful.
After reviewing the rules of cutting vytnanok, you can start creating magic stories on the windows.
Since the coming year 2019 will be held under the auspices of Mumps, make a composition with images of cute pigs.
Small vytynankami decorate not only the windows, but also the mirrors in the apartment. Making the figures bigger - decorate the walls with them.
We hang on the cornice branch with garlands
Using simple materials that come handy, you can create an original Christmas decoration. For example, walking in the park, do not pass by pretty tree branches, take them with you, and they will turn into stylish decorative elements.
Before starting work, clean the appropriate branch, cut, giving the desired shape and size.

Hang from the eaves, decorate with Christmas balls, garlands, cover with artificial snow, gold or silver paint.
Such unusual creativity will help you create an amazing accessory and reduce the cost of preparing for the holiday. The main thing is not to be afraid to dream and experiment boldly.
We paint windows with chalk marker
A simple and inexpensive way to create a decor with your own hands - painting on glass. One of the options for applying a festive pattern is a chalk marker that is sold in office stores. One of the main advantages of such a pattern is brightness and clear lines.
The color scheme of crayons is quite diverse, you can also find "luminous" - fluorescent markers. They will be a great helper in creating a festive mood on the windows of an apartment. And the fascinating process will appeal to both adults and children.
To start a creative lesson, draw or print a stencil. Glue it on the back of the glass.
To make the drawing fit well, the work surface must be clean and dry.
Circle all contour details with a marker. Remember that chalk marker inks take a few minutes to dry, so work carefully.
After all the details are ready, the template is removed. At will, the drawing is colored with color markers.
The drawings made in this way are easily erased with a damp sponge, which means that at any moment you can correct inaccuracies in the work. Creative success to you!
We hang on the windows electric garland
One of the easiest ways to create a Christmas mood in your home is to decorate a window with a garland. Multi-colored lights in the evening will attract the attention of passers-by and make their hearts smile.
To hang a garland, use scotch tape (plain or double-sided) or special hooks that can be purchased at a hardware store.
No matter which way you choose, the main thing is that the fasteners must be safe and secure.
It is also necessary to follow some safety rules to avoid fire situations:
- Do not leave a working garland for a long time without supervision.
- Do not allow water to enter.
- Check the cord insulation regularly.
- In case of failure, turn off the device from the network.
Before you start decorating the window with colorful lights, consider mounting options. I hope a small selection of photos will inspire you to create a small New Year's miracle.
Electric garland can simply stretch around the perimeter of the window or hang hanging threads. And you can create different images, compositions or use light bulbs of decorative forms.
The modern range allows you to make the most daring fantasies!
We decorate the window sill with mini-trees
When you have finished decorating the window, place candles, themed figurines or mini Christmas trees made with your own hands on the windowsill. How to do it? I will be happy to tell you!
A pretty, incredibly fragrant Christmas tree is obtained, decorated with dried citrus slices. To create it you will need:
- Beautiful bottle
- Christmas tree branches
- Lemon, Orange
Start by preparing the decoration. Cut lemon and orange into slices. Spread out on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Place in the oven for 5 hours.
Drying citrus slices should be carried out at a temperature of 50 degrees.
After the slices have cooled down, carefully attach the usual paper clips to them, hang the Christmas trees on the branches previously installed in the bottle.
From simple materials at hand, you can also make wonderful Christmas trees. All that is needed for work: colored paper, sticks, glue gun for connecting parts.
Let's make three more Christmas trees, which will be based on a paper cone.
To work prepare:
- A 4 format cardboard
- Ruler, compass
- Glue "moment"
First we make a cone. Let's draw on a piece of cardboard ¼ a part of a circle with a radius of 21 cm. We will cut off a small piece from the top of the cone so it will be easier to glue it.
Cut the cone along the outlined contour, glue.
To decorate the first tree, take: threads of different colors, ribbons, glue gun.
We make little balls from threads. Glue them to the cone, starting from the base.
To the top of the tree we glue a ribbon bow.
For the second tree, take: thick threads, twine, dried citrus slices, coffee beans, sackcloth, PVA glue.
We cover the cone with white glue and, starting from the top, we wind in a spiral thread. Give a good dry.
At the bottom and in the center we glue strips of burlap. Decorate the Christmas tree.
At the end add a bow of twine. Another wonderful Christmas tree is ready!
For the last Christmas tree will need: tinsel, beads, ribbons, hot glue.
With the help of glue, attach the tip of the tinsel to the top, tightly wind the cone. At the end fix it again with glue.
We decorate the Christmas tree with beads, bows of ribbons.
As you can see, it’s quite simple and quick to make little Christmas beauties with your own hands.
We dress curtains
Having thought out the composition competently, you can turn ordinary curtains into a New Year's masterpiece. Use for this all that you find at hand - Christmas decorations, electric or paper garlands. It is possible for the holidays to make curtains of snowflakes.
Use for decoration curtains podhvaty on New Year's theme - Christmas trees, snowmen. Or take a beautiful ribbon, hang Christmas balls on it - a simple garter is ready!
Decorating curtains, remember that all elements should not only be combined with each other in color, but also look harmonious in the room.
Decorate the windowsill ... Christmas stockings
The British say that once, long ago, in one magical winter night, Santa Claus flew over one house. Accidentally, several gold coins fell from his pocket, which fell directly into the chimney. And from there - to the sock of the poor man, who was drying on the fireplace. Since then, the custom has gone - to hang socks by the fireplace, hoping to get a gift from Santa.
This beautiful tradition has long taken root in our country. But not everyone has a fireplace in the house. There is a solution - hang Christmas stockings on the windowsill. Just glue hooks to it and hang a sock.
We painted windows in gouache
Do you want to turn into a good wizard and create a fabulous pattern on the windows? Arm yourself with gouache, tassels and go ahead! If you do not draw very well, use stencils, which, as in the case of drawing with markers, are glued to the glass. And after applying the picture simply removed.
To paint lay on the glass evenly, and the drawings were clear, when working with gouache, you must follow a few simple rules:
- Wipe the window with a bulb cut in half - so the paint is better placed on the glass.
- Apply a stencil to the window, apply a pattern with a wide brush or sponge.
- After the paint dries out, paint fine details with thinner brushes.
- Strokes can be applied when the shreds of a wooden toothpick or skewer.
As you can see, it is not difficult to create a small miracle, even if you are not a professional artist.
We decorate the windows of our house for the New Year
On the eve of the New Year and Christmas holidays, a special atmosphere reigns around! Everybody is in a hurry, buying gifts, decorating everything and everyone).
I looked into such an elegant window - and it immediately becomes clear: here they are ready for the holidays. You go into the house and plunge into the New Year mood!
Many already in the first days of December begin to prepare to decorate their rooms, office rooms for the New Year. Windows occupy a special place in the festive decoration.
In the shops you can find a lot of a variety of products for this purpose. However, hand-made crafts will look much more interesting and will delight not only you, but also your guests. And if your child made this work, you will agree that it is twice as pleasant, even if this work is not as elegant as “shop-like”.
You can decorate anything with your own crafts, including windows. Watch the video:
If you have an artist's hand, you can draw something.
The truth requires a special paint, which is then easy to clean.
It seems to me that figures cut out of paper and pasted on glass will look much more interesting. What is more interesting, you say? The fact is that you will draw in proud loneliness, but your children will help you to cut and paste figures. After all, the New Year is a family holiday and the children are waiting for him with a special feeling. And if the child takes a direct part in preparing for the holiday, the celebration will be more joyful and enjoyable for all its participants.
And you can not only cut out paper and stick any figures, but also make stencils with which you can then decorate your windows. And you can also make a Christmas tree out of paper with the children, like - see here.
Stencils on the glass do it yourself
The most common material for New Year crafts, and crafts for other holidays is paper. This is such a good and convenient material that for centuries there have been various schools for the manufacture of paper crafts. Take at least the same origami.
But today we are interested in New Year stencils. The manufacture of such handicrafts came to us from the depth of the centuries from China and, as you see, it stuck. Although in ancient Russia, they were fond of such creativity.
At the beginning of the necessary tools.
For the manufacture of stencils, we need:
- stationery knife,
- flat place - a table or board,
- Well, for granted - paper. (The paper may be colored, and even wrapping.)
The easiest thing to do is traditional snowflakes. It is not difficult to make them, the main thing is to lay down so that then an interesting figure turns out. Here you can go two ways. Take a paper square or rectangle and bend it six or seven times.
You can put a sheet of paper on the table and draw a large circle or compasses or using a plate. After that we fold in the same way.
By the way, the paper folding technique is a classic example of origami.
After we folded the paper and got a triangle, we take a pencil and draw patterns along the edges of the triangle. Then with scissors we carefully cut out the drawn places and unfold the snowflake. We get such products here:
In more detail each:
You can just take these patterns,
print or draw yourself and cut
Patterns can be different - it all depends on fantasy. These same snowflakes can not only hang out separately, but also make them whole compositions.
It looks quite interesting and impressive. This is of course a fairly simple option that is available to everyone. However, there are more artistic works that are not for everyone.
Therefore it is better to copy them
download to your computer and print.
If you are an artist, then you can easily draw your own idea. And what about the rest?
But nothing is impossible, and the Internet comes to the rescue. Find the most favorite template, download it and print it. After that, carefully cut out using a stationery knife for small parts.
The template is ready. It remains to stick it on the glass. You can of course "stick" to the glue, but then it will be difficult for you to tear off your craft.
In order to make everything easy to remove after the holiday, we use laundry soap, with a solution of which we apply the product and then paste it on the windows.

After that we take the toothpaste squeezed out on a saucer, diluted in a small amount of water and foam rubber rolled up into a tube. Dunking foam in a solution of toothpaste stencil pattern on the glass.
If the design is complex and it needs to be wet for a long time, you can glue the template (made of thin paper) to the window with soapy water, and when all the work is dry, remove it from the glass.
Small parts can be scratched with a thin stick.
The second way: fix the stencil on the window and using a toothbrush dipped in toothpaste or paint, spray around the mixture on the glass. Remove the template, and the picture on the window will remain.

We dress the window homemade garland
Very gently and beautifully look on the windows of the cascades of garlands, which are easy to do with your own hands. I offer you instructions for creating such jewelry. Stock up on the necessary materials, patience, good mood and get to work.
For the manufacture of the first garland take: colored foil (sold in sets in the offices of the office), scissors, thread.
Cut out circles from paper (monophonic or multi-colored) of different sizes. Cut the thread into pieces of the desired length. Apply a drop of hot glue to the center of each circle, glue the thread.
Thus, along the entire length of the thread at a small distance from each other, we glue the circles. We make as many threads-garlands as needed for the entire width of the window.
For the second garland, you need to cut out snowflakes, angels or any other silhouettes that are also glued to the thread.
Let's make another version of Christmas curtains-garlands in the form of snowflakes. For work you will need:
- Baking paper
- Glue gun
- Acrylic paint (white, gold, silver)
- Skein of white wool
On the parchment draw glue snowflakes.
The glue hardens quickly and it looks like silicone figures.
Gently paint the snowflakes. While the paint dries, we make small pompons from the threads.
We draw the layout of the garland. На длинные нити поочерёдно приклеиваем снежинки и помпоны, скотчем цепляем их к верхней части окна.
Красиво смотрятся на окнах гирлянды из шишек.
Смастерить такой оригинальный элемент декора просто. Для работы понадобятся: шишки, акриловая краска, моток ленты.
Dip the bumps in the paint, leave to dry well for 10 - 12 hours.
We connect the cones to each other with a tape. We make one or more garlands according to our plans.
So just decorate the windows for the New Year. And it is not necessary to spend huge sums on it. All materials for creating decor are available and can be found in any home.

And here is how unusual the scene, the hut and smoke from the chimney, decorated with the help of snowflakes. Agree, snowflakes do not look so boring?
Thermal Glue Snowflakes
I will tell you in more detail later. Now there is one idea that, in the context of the whole theme, will show how beautiful this jewel looks and how quickly to make it.
- Baking paper (or simple tracing paper),
- Glue gun,
- Tracing to put on the stencil.
- On the tracing paper with a glue gun repeat the contours of the snowflakes.
- Peel off the snowflake.
- Scotch fix the craft on the glass.
Snowflakes are obtained as crystal!
By the way, you can make a pattern from snowflakes of different shapes and sizes. For example, a Christmas tree or a snowflake in the whole window. Stencils for you help - increase with a click:
Glue to the glass such crafts from paper can be in different ways:
- On the water (if from the napkins),
- Soap solution
- Put on the tape.
This option can come even for kids. Put a printout-drawing of a snowflake under the parchment and draw a snowflake with the help of PVA. If you immediately trot on the non-frozen glitter with sparkles, you will get a beautiful shiny snowflake. You can paint the PVA glue with acrylic paints and paint colored snowflakes at once.
It is very easy to glue on the windows - they stick, if not, then moisten a little with water.
Transparent snowflakes look like crystal:
Make it easy. You can use ready-made, for example, the usual "rain".
And you can make a soft and bright garland of felt. Toys do not have to be voluminous, you can simply cut the Christmas trees or boots according to a pattern, using hot glue or the moment to glue small decorative elements and attach to the string.
Bells on a ribbon.
At a short distance apart knotted bells. Make these threads a few.
Snowmen from krokotak, or rather a garland of snowmen. It is very easy to make it - we print a snowman or draw around the contour. Pattern - two in one, depending on how you fold the top. We fold one snowman so that he has a hat on his head, another one so that the headphones are turned out, instruct the children to paint and hang the snowmen on the rope.
Cotton balls on the line
Roll up cotton balls. Strung on a fishing line or thread. I wonder if the balls will be of different sizes. They can be alternated with snowflakes.
Paper christmas balls
- Put some sheets of thin paper in silence over each other.
- Fold all layers of paper harmonica. The width of the strip of your choice and depends on the diameter of the ball.
- Tie this accordion in the middle with a string.
- Edge trim (align) and round out.
- Alternately lift each layer and straighten it. Raise half layers up.
- Then turn the craft. Straighten the other half of the sheets in the other direction.
- Get a ball.
- Hang it on the window.
Inscriptions, numbers and greetings
I will share the observation from the last NG. Residents of the same apartment hung out a wish on their windows: “Everyone! Total!". You know, as they say, a trifle, but nice!
You can print any letters and hang them as a congratulatory text. You can cut all the patterns and get vytynanka.
Cut conveniently with a stationery knife. Print out the template, put a blank A4 sheet under it. Fix both sheets with scotch tape to the table and on the template with a knife cut out all the patterns inside, then the general outline, a sheet with a ready vytynanka is obtained under the template.
Stencil checkboxes are incremented by a click.

We decorate the windows constantly. I usually buy stickers, we will cut something out and stick it this year) Thanks for the ideas!
Idea # 1: Decorating windows with toothpaste
The older generation remembers well that during the periods of the Soviet shortage, toothpaste was the main tool for creating New Year's décor. She painted not only the windows of apartments, but also the windows of schools or kindergartens, attracting children to this fascinating process. It is worth noting that toothpaste is a universal art material that allows you to create several types of painting at once - both ornamental and negative.
In the second type of painting the picture is similar to the image of the film, that is, dark, unpainted places become the accent. By the way, this is the simplest type of painting, which even a child can easily cope with. Be sure to attract kids to the process of creating fabulous pictures on the windows! Another positive point is that after the end of the festivities, you can easily clean the windows from the design by simply wiping the glass with a wet cloth. Before you start work, you need to prepare:
- foam sponge or old toothbrush,
- a piece of masking tape
- a bowl,
If you have at least minimal artistic skills, you can paint the window manually, but for this purpose you first need to make a brush for yourself. To do this, twist the foam rubber in the form of a tube and wrap a piece of adhesive tape. It is better to make a pair of brushes with different diameters in order to draw both large and small parts. Squeeze the paste on a platter, dip a brush and draw fir branches, snowmen, Christmas balls and serpentine.
When the paste dries, take an orange stick for a manicure or a toothpick and scratch small details - dots or asterisks on the balls, eyes at the snowmen or needles on the fir-tree legs. By the same principle, you can create window paintings, painted with gouache paints or artificial snow from a can.

Snowy winter with soft fluffy snowdrifts is the dream of most children and adults. In the end, it is so nice to ride on a sled, make a snowman, make a snow battle, or go for a walk in the woods!

For this you need to decorate the windows with unusual stickers made of white glue.
Who would have thought that an unusual decor could be created from such a simple material? In the daytime, while it’s light outside, the snowflakes seem almost transparent and do not interfere with the view. But in the evening, when the moonlight or rays of lanterns fall on the window, it gleams like a real frost! By the way, this decoration can last more than one year - it is enough to carefully remove the snowflakes, lay them with paper, put them in a box and send them to a dry place until next New Year. For making snowflakes you need to have:
- paper or ready-made cardboard or plastic stencils,
- strong film or paper files
