Oh the things you find on Pintrest! When I was at my daughter’s house in February she shared a project with me that one of her friends had seen on Pintrest. I helped my daughter complete the project at her house on her front door windows and I could not believe how cute it turned out.

Needless to say it has been on my to do list ever since. This past weekend I finally got around to doing it.

What you will need.
A variety of colored tissue paper torn into pieces (I’ll admit I’m a little anal so I cut mine into one inch squares).
Washable glue sticks - I used Elmer’s Washable School Glue sticks.
Liquid glue which you can dilute - I used Elmer’s Washable School Glue.

First I cleaned the window with Windex and made sure it was dry.

Since I wanted a pattern I cut out my shapes using my Cricut and the Accent Essentials Cartridge; accent #45 (pg 76).

Next I placed the shape on the window using Herma removable adhesive.

I then used the glue stick on the window to frame my shape.

I removed the shape and rubbed off the residue from the removable adhesive.

I filled in the glued area with the squares of tissue paper.

I started in the middle of the window and worked outwards. (I’m thinking it might have been easier to start on the outside and work in?)

After the window was covered with the tissue paper squares I sealed the tissue paper by painting over it using a mixture of the diluted liquid school glue and a paint brush.

This is not permanent and will come off easily with either Windex or warm soapy water.

You can just barely see Marie (that bad cat) sneaking out from under the bed.
