DIY Decorations for Windows and Doors

DIY Decorations for Windows and Doors

September 26, 2013


Looking for a creative way to brighten up a room without breaking the bank in the process? This fall, hop on the DIY train and transform your windows and doors with a variety of simple supplies found around the house or at your local craft store. Here are a few of the best multi-purpose materials you could use to dress up your home this weekend.

Ribbons & Scarves. Re-purpose some of your old scarves or pick out ribbons with fun, lively patterns at your craft store to add color to your windows and doors. Fasten to your existing curtain rod, attach to the top of your door, or find your own creative way to hang your chosen fabric and you’ll be sure to catch the eye of anyone who visits your home. Mix and match patterns or tie interesting knots for an even bigger effect!

Tea/Kitchen Towels. For a simple yet warm look, try turning your favorite hand towels that you no longer use into one-of-a-kind “café curtains.” These towels are the perfect size to hang in your kitchen window or in the window panels on your door, and will almost instantly cast your home in a homey, comfortable glow. To spruce up your windows and doors even further, attach buttons or other small trinkets to your newly installed café curtains. Learn how to transform your towels into curtains here.


Brightening up your windows and doors with creative DIY touches is a decorative decision that will add both personality and color to your home. Dig around in your basement to find forgotten treasures or stop by your local craft store to purchase some low-cost items – either way, you will have the ability to easily create some wonderful DIY magic.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
