Instructions

This is a great time to clean your windows! Start with a nice clean surface area.

Begin by outlining a square or rectangle space on the window with painter’s tape or masking tape.

Next fill in the design!

Get started painting! Just paint directly onto the window trying not to paint on the tape strips.

You can choose to paint an abstract stained glass window of shards and geometric shapes or try your hand at a creative art design! There is no wrong way to do it!

Let your paint dry. If you want a darker bolder stained glass window art look then you will just need to paint 2-3 coats of paint letting each one dry in between.
