I am in the process of making these really cool windows---I decided that I would post the how to on these for you--my favorite bloggaroo's as a gift to you---I figured--this would be an AWESOME gift to make for someone for the holiday gift giving----here's how I did it-----
1. I gathered really cool white and off white painted pane windows
2. Clean WELL
3. I used clear contact paper and cut the letters after tracing them onto the contact paper from a stencil I have---if you do not have a stencil-----worry not---here's a famous trick---I have used my computer and print the letters out Large and then trace them through the contact paper with a sharp pen---then cut them out and place them onto your window----whatever words you like---JOY---Let it SNOW--blah blah blah the possibilities are endless---I also got some cheap snowflake stickers to place here and there on my window as well---that large snowflake is actually a rhinestone studded metal one that I got from Target in the ornaments dept. and I glued it on there with 'Fusion' a clear polyurethane non foaming glue---it's a miracle glue---like magic it is so STRONG----I also put a masking tape line to keep me from going astray in my letter placement when I stuck them on there---it takes a long time to get them all on there very straight and beaut-eeee-ful---so patience is totally a virtue!
4. Go to a well ventalated area to spray this really cool spray on there that FROSTS the glass---you can get it at most craft stores and it is a spray--the particular one that I used is from Valspar and it is called Frosting for Glass and was by the stained glass painting supplies----spray nice and evenly taking great caution in overspraying your amount so it does not drip onto your glass----I gave that window 3 SEPERATE coats letting it dry 1 hour between coats-----then let it dry WELL and CAREFULLY peel your stickers off and then you can glue your other embellishments on there and VIOLAAAA---BEAUTIOUS WINDOW CREATION---by you!!!
PS. You can also do the reverse of that option and have your letters be frosted and I also think it would be WAY cool to add some white lights on the backside of it---to hang on the wall---or mantle---OMGosh--the picture doesn't really do it justice--they are really very pretty and I have been making them for the shop---have fun with this!
MERRY CHRISTMAS MY LOVELIES!!!!
