DIY Lace Window Project

Pretty lace pieces installed into each window pane for privacy!  So simple and so sweet, I will encourage you to give it a try.  You'll need 



  • LACE
  • SCISSORS
  • IRON
  • CORNSTARCH
  • PAINTBRUSH
  • HANDTOWELS TO CLEAN UP






Iron the lace material until flat and smooth.  
Pin down the lace after you iron it, so it won't slip while you're cutting.

  
Measure up those window panes (or use a cardboard cut to fit) and carefully cut lace into sheets.   




Mix 2 tsp of cornstarch with 2 tsp water, then slowly add 1 cup heated water to activate the cornstarch. Allow mixture to cool.  Spread a coat of mixture on window glass  with paint brush (be ready with towel to wipe away drips).  Install a sheet of lace and apply another coating of the cornstarch-water.




Best thing about this project: it removes with warm water!  

If you make a mistake, just start over.


Here are wildwood's tips for the Lace Window Project:

  • Keep the lace sheets pinned down so you can install them in the same sequence
(keeps the pattern of the lace consistent)

  • Use a drop-cloth or some towels and just let it drip and be messy





This window project gives us just enough privacy...



    ...and it's very appealing from the outside, too.  The lace still allows my cats to enjoy their sun-puddle naps, too.


Do you have some tips for this project? Leave a comment and let us know.
