If you have little kids or pets that make hanging leaves in your window impossible, think about changing the glass of your window into the decoration. You can do this by using the glass as a canvas and paint the decorations on it.
This removes anything dangling that your pets would mistake as new toys or your little kids would grab to look at better.
Choose the Right Window Paint
When you paint your windows you want to make sure that you are using the right paint. Using the wrong paint could leave you with permanent fall windows or a huge mess when it is time to clean it off.
Select craft paint that is specifically designed to be used on windows and can be easily washed or scraped off at the end of the season. If you aren’t sure about the paint ask an employee at the craft store. This is not a purchase that you want to make without being sure.
Making the Window Look Nice
If you have even an ounce of artistic talent fall items are very easy to paint on a window. But, if you are one of those that have trouble drawing even a stick figure, you might want to think about purchasing a little help with the shapes.
Artistic help can be found with stencils that you can use to trace the fall shape you want to put on your window or with sponges in the shape of fall items.
Keep it Fall Themed
Sure it’s fun to paint witches, jack-o-lanterns, and ghosts on the window in October but, if you go with Halloween figures you are going to want to remove the paint from the window once Halloween is done.
However, if you stick with fall themes (leaves, uncarved pumpkins, cornstalks, and scarecrows) you will be able to enjoy the painted window for a lot longer because the fall has a longer timeframe than Halloween. That means that you can paint your window in September (or right now), and you can leave it up until it is time to decorate for Christmas.
Don’t Forget About Your Glass Storm Door
You don’t have to focus your painting attention on just your windows either. If you have a storm door, it provides you with a perfect opportunity to decorate the front door area of your home, as well.
It also gives you a second place to paint if you have two different fall themes that you want to use. You can focus on one theme (like a pumpkin patch) on the storm door and an additional theme (a tree with falling leaves) on the window.
