Repurposed Festive Window - finished fall motif recycled painted windowWhenever I see abandoned broken doors or window panels, I instantly find treasure in them. I think they make beautiful pieces of art when repurposed. Here is a large paneled window piece painted on for the fall season.


Total Time: 2 hours

Source: This is a craft by my dear friend, Laurieann :)


  • old panel of windows or windowed door, cleaned with Windex
  • acrylic paints including white
  • brushes
  • pencil


  1. Find a design you like. We used an image from an autumn stamp set. Start painting an outline of the design with white paint.
  2. Start filling in the outlines with white paint.
  3. Repurposed Festive Window - start filling in the design with white paint
  4. When you have the basic shape of the design fully filled in, let it dry.
  5. Repurposed Festive Window - let it dry
  6. When completely dry, use a pencil to lightly draw your designs on it as a guide. Then use paint to colour it in. Let dry.
  7. Repurposed Festive Window - when dry lightly draw on designs with a pencil and begin painting

This is beautiful, and you saved something from the landfill.

Yes! I used to be quite shy about collecting things like this to repurpose but now I'm proud to do it. It's fun, it's free, and it makes a great scene and/or gift. Thanks, Judy!
