As you start to decorate your home for the holiday season be sure to spruce up your windows as well. Trimming the tree and adding garland throughout the home can bring some Christmas Cheer but you can take it one step further and trim your windows for the Holiday’s. Here are some easy and inexpensive Holiday Window Decorating Ideas:
Before You Do Anything!!!
Never ever drill, screw or nail anything into a vinyl window frame. Never ever, ever use a hair dryer to melt ice on your window glass unless you want to pay me to replace your window glass. When screwing, drilling or nailing into a wooden window frame be sure you are no less that 2 full inches away from the glass. Remember that the glass goes into the frame almost an inch so there is glass where you cannot see it. When glass is cold it is more fragile than when it’s warm so don’t hit or push on the glass. Take care not to push too hard when applying suction cup hooks. When removing old tape residue, use window cleaner and a razor blade. Never scrape glass with a razor without applying cleaner first. Dry glass will scratch. Use common sense when decorating your windows.
