Frame a glowing window with lighted draped garland, and set potted miniature Christmas trees at each side. Add an embellished wreath in the center, and fill the window box with a coordinating mix of outdoor decorations and natural elements. Finish the scene with a grouping of DIY luminaries made out of metal mesh and filled with string lights for top-to-bottom impact.
Window boxes can do double duty during the holidays. Fill them with lights, greens, large shatterproof ball ornaments, ribbons and bows and even pinecones and twigs.
To make an outdoor wreath stand out and look good in front of large windows, buy an extra-large decorated one or embellish a plain one with your favorite types of ornaments. Add lights to make it pop against the window glass and reflect in metallic ornaments.

For an extra layer of light, make your own luminaries out of metal mesh. Just cut, roll into tubes, fasten and add string lights. Vary the height and make a grouping. The more the merrier!
