Do you put candles in your windows for the holidays? Perhaps hang a wreath from each window outside? How about a little holiday love for the inside of our windows! Today, let’s make a really fast window arch from a simple faux evergreen wreath!
I hope that everyone had a good weekend! Some of you might already have your homes all decked and ready for the season (and I am SO envious if you do!) I am in full decorating mode this week and wanted to share a quick, easy way to make a simple holiday window arch using a wreath.
Start with a simple, plain 12” faux evergreen wreath (I got mine at Michael’s.) Of course, you can use a larger sized wreath if you want a larger arch. (My photo here shows my wreath with lights in it, which you can just pretend you don’t see!)
Fold the wreath in half so that you have two even halves. Snip each side with wire cutters and now you have two arches! Twist some wire into a loop and attach to the back of the arch. Insert a large safety pin through the loop. This is how we will attach our arch to our valance or curtains!
I made an 8-loop bow for each of my arches, using a burgundy, gold-beaded edge ribbon. You can make any bow you like or add extra decorations. Let your creativity run wild!
Here is how my simple, completed window arch looks with the bow.
I attached my arch by pinning it to my valance…and it’s done! I put these arches on my kitchen windows and like the little extra holiday flare it gives the room. How about trying them on your bedroom windows for a fast, easy holiday touch?
