Faux Stained Glass Project

137,176 Views
I have an odd size transom window in my guest bedroom. It posed some challenges with what to do for a window treatment. I love the light that it brings into the room. I wanted to do something interesting as an accent in keeping with the Victorian theme of the room to match the stained glass lamp. Here are the supplies I used. I purchased four sets of rosettes for $9.95 each at Home Depot. I purchased a package or faux lead dividers at Michaels for $6.95 (could easily do many more projects like this one with leftover material). Here are the photos of my faux stained glass project that cost a fraction of the price of true stained glass. This project cost me a total of $47.00 while a true stained glass piece for this area would have easily cost me $1,000.00!
Here is the final project. I did this in the evening as the sun was setting so it may be a bit hard to see the detail. I will add better photos when I have better lighting.
I measured the window to put the first divider in the center of the window. I then removed the rosettes (which are stickies that cling to the glass) and placed them in the center of the spaces.
I then began to measure, cut and add other dividers to create an interesting design.

    Very pretty! You'd never know it was faux!

    Very nice! I have a bedroom window that I've been trying to come up with something for, without blocking the light.

    I love this! I have a plain window above my front door and this is a perfect idea! On my 'to try' list.
