Made from metal, wood and acrylic, Christmas window lights are available in a variety of styles to match your style and taste.

Metal Candlesticks

Thoroughly contemporary is the Silver Metal Candlestick with fifteen candles that are elegantly pencil slim and have LED 'flames'.

It's also available in red, black, white, copper and gold with mini versions that 10in rather than 15in high, together with other variations in a choice of intriguing configurations.

As the name indicates, the Contemporary Metal Candlestick is another modern design. it's copper coloured and strikingly minimalist with five handsomely tall lights.

If Gothic is your preferred style, there are Large Metal Candlesticks With Crystal Hearts, these are offered in black or white with seven or five candles.

Other elaborate metal designs include the Silver Wire, Romantic and Raised White candlesticks.

The Brass Coloured Candle Bridge is less ornate, while the shapely Black Metal Candlestick's impact is curved and rather serpentine.

Wooden Window Lights

Wooden window lights come in a variety of finishes, natural, oak, dark, white or coloured, and in a number of styles but normally as angular or rounded arches with seven candles.

Cheerful green and red candle bridges are pretty variations and can be decorated with an attractive floral pattern.

The Light Wooden Candelabra is classically shaped and crafted from oiled oak with seven white LED candles and the Tall Light Oak Wooden Candelabra is another one aimed at traditionalists.

Acrylic Silhouettes

As an alternative to candles, there are paper and acrylic stars but perhaps the most popular are wooden silhouettes, beautifully crafted and lit by LEDs these depict Christmas scenes with an alpine theme.

More colourful are the illuminated silhouettes that portray Santa Claus arriving on a steam train full of presents and subsequently delivering them.

A snowman can be seen sweeping up or posting Christmas cards in his hat and gloves, or you may choose to just have Merry Christmas displayed brightly in your window.
