Picture Window

So I just finished this today. Okay so I stared and finished it today. Now I'm kind of mad at myself for selling my old windows on my garage sale. After having the windows sit in my garage for 4 years, I was tired of storing them thinking one day I would do something with them. I had one left and this turned out so good I wish I could make more!

I had never used Mod Podge on glass and was a little apprehensive. But it turned out awesome! After cleaning the window up really good, aka hosing it down with the garden hose. I cut two rectangles of fabric to size and glued them on with Mod Podge. I screwed in some eye hooks and threaded them with jute.



Next I Mod Podged some coordination paper to some clothes pins and added a touch of glitter. I mean how cool did this turn out? It will be for sale at Handmade'ns this year!

Thanks ladies! I'm on the hunt for more windows myself! I do have some without glass that I'm going to turn into cork boards. Wait and see!
