The leaves are changing colors, the air has a crisp smell in it and the days are getting shorter. Fall is coming and it is time to start putting out the fall decorations. It’s time to dress up the windows for the season.
With windows, your autumn decorations are limited to what can be attached vertically to the glass. Leaving you with a small list you can decorate with, like window clings and other items that are light enough to be taped on the glass.
Vinyl clings have been around long before many of us were born. A handy decoration that is found everywhere, they are easy to attach, easy to remove and are inexpensive. For those that have never seen a window cling, they are a thin piece of vinyl with a picture on it. It can be attached to any window or piece of glass you want to put it on.
Window clings for autumn decorations can be elegant or fun. Whatever you choose is up to you.
Gel Clings that are Autumn Decorations
Gel clings work the same exact way that vinyl clings do. They adhere to any glass surface you want them to. These clings have not been around as long as the vinyl clings, but are starting to become popular. The best thing about the gel clings is the way the light comes through them when they are on your window.
The greatest differences between the two are that the gel clings are thicker and they only come in shapes. For autumn decorations, you can purchase them in the shapes of leaves, pumpkins and other fall shapes.
Faux Leaves to Create Autumn Decorations
To add texture and color to your windows, decorate with faux, fall leaves. Purchase the leaves that are loose and sold in a package with other individual leaves. Do not purchase leave that are attached together on a vine. It is more expensive to purchase them this way, and you will have to remove the leaves from the vine anyway.
You can find these leaves at any craft store or any store that sells fall decorations. You can even find them at your local dollar store.
Once you have the leaves, adhere them to your windows with small pieces of double stick tape or clear, removable, glue dots. The tape can find at any store that sells tape. The clear, removable, glue dots may be found with the tape, but will most likely be found with scrapbooking supplies.
