My Christmas Windows

I need to find my Halloween photo from last year, but here are two Christmas windows I did in 2011 & 2012. Very simple and easy, but we enjoyed them. My Halloween was far more complicated and busier than these.

2011




2012

Nancy, those are adorable! What are the rings that the figures are hanging from? Did you make that cute wreath too?

Also, does your netting have white wire or green? I've been looking for some with white wire do it "disappears" but can only find green?
Hung them in the window with the mini command hooks. The wire was clear. It was on Ebay, faerie LED lights. Actually, my net was too big. I think a 150 light set would work. I had a 350 and 3/4 of it hung on the floor. LOL!!!

I made the green mickey head wreath in both photos using the Home Depot Mickey paint chips (no longer available). The white mickey towel wreath in the first photo was from Mousekeeping.

The felt hanging characters I purchased (on the ring) from Wahlgreens. Last year they carried the Elves and the year before it was the Snow People. I think I only paid $3 each for them.

I'm not sure what I'm doing this year, but you can bet that my green wreath will be in it (it took me so long to make it!) because I am getting my use out of it for sure!! I had a really elaborate window planned out last year, but ran out of time. It's beginning to look like I will run out of time this year too!

Thanks for the info, Nancy. I always forget about Walgreens and their Disney holiday stuff, I need to check it out. I know what you mean about running out of time, I'm freaking out about making matching shirts and window decorations. I ordered the led net lighting off ebay last night (thanks to you) so that's a relief. Now I'm cutting snowflakes to hang on the window which is time consuming but I love it. I see you are staying at Pop also! We'll be there Dec. 11-15, what are your dates? I hope they overlap so I can check out your fabulous window in person!

Are you going to keep your net lighting? If not would you like to sell it? We are going 1/1/14. Might be cutting it close but thought I'd mention it.

I plan on using the lights for future trips. You can find them on here:

$15.95 and free shipping - can't beat that! Happy Holidays!

I'm loving the window decorations!! I am really wanting to decorate ours for the week of thanksgiving but I'm not sure if I should do Thanksgiving or Christmas. What do you think? I'm leaning towards Christmas because this trip IS a big part of our Christmas this year. Our dates are November 22-30th.

I know some feel strongly about Thanksgiving being skipped over but I vote for Christmas just because it gives you a lot of fun options.

Okay - I've been researching and getting ideas. So excited - we've never decorated and I admit dh thinks I've lost my mind.

We will only decorate during our stay at POR 11/13-22-- we have two rooms. DD and I are torn between decorating for Christmas, decorating for Thanksgiving or just decorating w/ various Disney characters. Is that time in November too early to do Christmas?

I hope someone answers you! I for one think Christmas would be fine since the resorts are decorated for Christmas. I keep going back to it myself.
