Creating Gorgeous Home Decor

After I bought a home, I realized that I wanted the interior to be warm and beautiful, just like my parent's home was. However, I knew that since my budget was limited, it was going to be hard to create gorgeous wreaths and holiday decorations. Fortunately, I was determined, so I headed to the craft store. I picked up some sturdy wreath forms and a few items that I thought would make my home truly special. As I worked with my hands, I was amazed at how well my projects came along. This blog is here to help other crafters to know where to start, so that you can make your place beautiful too.

How To Use Removable Window Graphics

by Elisa Rodriguez

When you want a window decorating solution that's both beautiful and removable, it's time to turn to peel-and-stick window graphics. These window graphics can be used by businesses to advertise and promote sales. They can also be used by homeowners and renters who would simply like to dress up their residential windows. You can find window graphics in a plethora of seasonal and everyday designs. Follow these five steps to use your new removable window graphics.

1. Clean your window.

Window graphics are made from a clear film that has the ability to cling to glass surfaces. Any dirt or dust on a window will inhibit this sticking ability. To ensure you get the best possible seal, clean your window thoroughly before applying your window graphics. Use any commercial window cleaner or vinegar with a lint-free rag. Wait until the cleaning solution thoroughly dries before proceeding to the next step.

2. Carefully peel the window graphic from its backing.

Window graphics are sold attached to a backing sheet just like stickers. This backing protects the adhesive side of the cling film until you're ready to use it. Use a fingernail to separate the window graphic from its packaging.

3. Place the window graphic in your desired location.

Decide where you want to place your window graphic before sticking it down. When you're sure you know where you want it, press your window graphic down onto the clean window. Start from one edge and lower the window graphic in one continuous motion. Press down as you work, applying the graphic from one edge to another in order to minimize air bubbles.

4. Use a credit card to remove air bubbles.

There will likely be some air bubbles present after you apply your window graphic. You can get rid of them using a credit card. Place the side of your credit card next to an air bubble and firmly push the air bubble to the edge of the window graphic. Keep pushing the air bubble until it disappears completely.

5. Gently remove the window graphic when you're done.

When you're ready to remove the window graphic, use your fingernail or a credit card to gently peel up the edges. Grip the window graphic between two fingers and use slow, firm pressure to pull it off the window. Peel-and-stick window graphics can be reused if you take care of them. Keep dust from sticking to the adhesive side of your window graphic by placing it back on the backing sheet it came with.
