STEP 1: Prep ornaments
If you're using the snowflake picks from Michaels like I did, you'll want to first snip the stick off. Then, simply cut a piece of fishing line with your scissors and tie to each snowflake. String each ornament as well.

STEP 2: Hang and fasten ornaments, lights and garland
Next, wrap the fishing line of your ornament around the pointy part of a push pin and push each pin into the top of your window casing. If you don't have window casing and you don't want a bunch of tiny holes above your window in your sheetrock, simply arrange your ornaments and lights on a long piece of wood, then mount it above your window.

Also using push pins, attach your string lighting to the top of your window. Of course be careful not to push any pins directly into the wiring--you'll want to either pin the wire against the wall where your window casing meets, or separate two of the tiny wires (there should be 3) and pin between them.

After you've pinned all of your ornaments and lights, take a strip of garland and pin on top of your window casing. Do this to cover up all of your push pins and give your window display a completed look.

Bo loves this window display! He was napping when I put everything together and he woke up astonished at the lights--it's amazing what a few inexpensive elements can create!
