Old Window Picture Frame

I found this old window and had to do something with it. 



  1. Find an old window
  2. Clean it up. Do not scrub to hard, you don't want to take away any of the distressed look. 
  3. Add the hanging hardware on the back. 
  4. Add your photos using small pieces of clear tape. 
  5. Hang it up!

Shamrock "Stained Glass"

By Makenna (2)
This is a fun way for your kids to help decorate for St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Take a half sheet of each color of tissue paper. Fold up and cut into 1 inch square pieces. Does not need to be a perfect square.
  2. Take a piece of wax paper and draw shamrocks with a permanent marker.
  3. Mix about one teaspoon of water with one tablespoon of glue together in a bowl.
  4. Paint an area of the shamrock with the glue mixture and layer on a few colors of tissue paper. Paint the glue over the top of the tissue paper. Continue until the shamrocks are covered completely. 
  5. Let the glue dry and then cut out the shamrocks.
  6. Hang it on a window to look like stained glass art.
  • You can use some of these same steps to make other pictures for any time of the year. For example; flowers, stars, pumpkins, snowmen.

Antique Window Photo Frame

This is a great country chic way to show off your family photos!

  • Old Window Frame
  • Sandpaper
  • Chicken Wire
  • Wire Cutter
  • Staple Gun/Staple Hammer w/staples
  • Hammer and Nails or other hanging Materials
  • Clothes Pins
  • Favorite Family Photos

  1. Prepare your window. Mine was an old screen window from a cabin. I had to remove the old screen from the window before I could start. 
  2. Sand and clean the wood lightly. I left a lot of the original paint and just lightly cleaned it. You may want to add some paint and give it a little distressed look.  
  3. Cut the chicken wire to the size you need with a wire cutter
  4. Staple the chicken wire to the back of the window. Be very careful not to get hurt. Ask someone to help you if you need. 
  5. Make sure there are no wires sticking out that could poke into your wall when you hang it.
  6. Hang your window up vertically or horizontally.  
  7. Add your family photos using clothes pins.
  8. Show off your beautiful family and hard work!
  • Find an old window at a craft/antique shop or online. 
  • Use fun clips for hanging your photos for a little extra personality.
