Wondering what to make?

Simple or spectacular… anything goes… as long as it’s family friendly!

Some window inspiration:

  • Candles, fairylights, an ironing board, teacups, toys, a line of your favourite books.
  • Carefully crafted tissue paper images, a sign, your kids handprints, your recycling.
  • A dance or drama performance, projections, live music (just ask the neighbours first!)

Once you sign up to make a window you get access to our ‘Display Ideas’ gallery, with categories including ‘Easier windows’ and even ‘Interactive’ to inspire you….
