Putting up fresh, new window treatments can bring a room back to life. With the holidays just around the corner, you are probably beginning to think about how you will decorate your home to create a festive and joyous environment for you to enjoy. One thing you don't want to do is damage your new window treatments in any way. Below, you will find a few ideas that will help you decorate your windows without causing any damage to your new treatments.
Hang Holiday Wreaths
Wreaths are one way to bring the holiday spirit into your home without much effort. You can choose to purchase a pre-made wreath that only needs to be hung or you can let your creative side come out and purchase the materials you need to put together a wreath of your very own. Making your own is typically less expensive and can make it easier to coordinate your wreath with the rest of the décor on your home.
To hang the wreath in your window, you simply need a quality suction cup with a hook. Take a minute to clean the window to ensure that the suction cup sticks well and doesn't fall down before you are ready to remove the wreath.
Stockings come in a variety of sizes, styles and colors. These holiday staples don't have to be restricted to being hung on the chimney – instead, you can use them to decorate your windows. You can do this by using the suction cups like the wreaths or you can use the sticky hooks and some fishing line to mount them to the wall above the window instead of on the window itself.
This is a beautiful idea for large bay or picture windows – hang a few stockings at different heights and your home will look beautiful from the inside and out.
Window clings are probably the easiest and most affordable way to dress up your windows for the holidays. You can find sheets of clings in most department and discount stores in various shapes, sizes and designs. If you want to keep it simple, you can get some basic snowflakes or frosted ornament designs to stick to your windows.
Before you stick your window clings on the window, clean the window well to be sure that there isn't any residue that would keep the clings from sticking throughout the holiday season.
These are just a few ideas for dressing up your windows for the holidays without causing any damage to your new window treatments. Let your creativity flow a bit and come up with some ideas of your own using the basics listed above. For assistance, contact a professional like Sav-Mor Upholstery.
