Painted Window Welcome Sign

I'm always looking for old windows to paint. As you see here they make great welcome signs, and much loved gifts!

WOW your window is great looking. I have two sitting on my screened in porch...had them for a while. I am thinking of painting a Christmas scene on them and sitting them out in front of my house. They are really too heavy to hang. Hope I get around to it this year! Thanks for the inspiration!!

I don't have any windows, but do you think this would work on the glass in a picture frame?

WOW your window was amazing!!!

Add me to the list of wishing I was getting

a cool window from you.

Not only is the window great but the entire photo

the way it fits in the room. Have you considered

selling them? I am sure you would do well.

Thank you for sharing.

My daughter and I did somthing like this once. We made stained glass windows. SO SIMPLE. All you need is some liquid starch and some colorful tissue paper. We tore up the tissue paper in to different sizes, wetted the window glass with the starch using a sponge paintbrush and placed the tissue paper peices on the wet glass. Let it dry before picking it up. We hung a couple in our screen porch. Because of the tissue, they probably wouldn't last long outside. But they sure were pretty. You could probably do this on a regular window in your home if you needed privacy, as the starch and tissue are very easy to clean off.

Re; Hanging windows

Just use some 3-4" screws and mount them right to the wall of your porch! They will hold up well!!!
