Create Your Own Seasonal Windows with Miniature Figurines
When I was little one of my favorite things to do around the holidays was to go into NYC and look at the department store windows. Each with a different, yet festive theme, one more awe-inspiring than the next. Even in the opening scenes of the classic “Christmas Story” movie the children are mesmerized by the toys amid a winter wonderland. It seems that these, and similar store windows, have been evocating excitement and joy in the eyes of children and adults alike for generations…so why not create your own.
From window boxes to shadow boxes, you can create whimsical holiday scenes with fairy garden accents and accessories.
Woodland Creatures: Bundled up and ready for the snow, use winter-weather woodland friends to design a forest full of fun. Dot your landscape with snow-capped trees and add a tubing bear, a tobogganing racoon, holiday moose, and even a snowball squirrel barreling down a hillside.
The North Pole: Ho ho home-made neighborhood for Mr and Mrs Claus with micro-landscaping and petite figurines. Jolly old St. Nick will feel right at home whether in his very own house or in his workshop filled with decorated Christmas trees.
Anytown USA: The holidays are everywhere you look when you create your own seasonal suburb. From decorated steeples and doorways, to wreaths and mailboxes full of holiday greetings, the spirit of the season is a sight to behold. Snow laden rooftops of illuminated fairy houses, gingerbread friends, and a string of lights are just a few of the ways you can turn an ordinary fairy garden into a festive free-for-all.
The best part of creating your own window wonderland is that you just add an accent or two and see where it takes you. Select snowman and ornament houses, kitchy tents and Christmas campers, surfing Santas and even a traditional (yet tiny) nativity, to welcome guests and create your own tradition that makes people smile.
