I had this window from a previous project, so the glass was already removed. Start, by removing the glass from the window and painting the window the color of your choice. I had previously used a wood stain on this. If you paint or stain your window, you'll need to make sure you let it dry completely.

Cut your chicken wire, chicken run or hardware cloth so that it overlaps the back of the window and staple to the frame.

Choose your yarn colors.

Cut two equal pieces of yarn and place diagonally over one of the squares.
