    Not sure what you mean by "and I like to shiny how can I do that" You can measure the window and cut lace to the size like a curtain. If you wanted to glue it to the window, you can go to a sign shop and have them cut a design pattern of lace. Then clean the glass and apply the decal. You'll need a spray bottle with water and dish soap (ask the sign shop) to center the design and smooth it out. The vinyl can be frosted looking or any color you want. Search for a lace pattern on Google and try to find one to match your glass size.

    Now if you don't like either of those options, you can get Scotch 77 spray glue (WalMart or Hobby Lobby) and cut the lace to the size you need. Pin the lace on a piece of cardboard and then spray a moderate coat of glue onto the lace. Get a friend or family member to help you place the lace on the glass. This has to be done while the glue is still tacky. You can use any color lace you want . If you get the glue on anything, mineral spirits will clean it up easily. I wouldn't do this on a door that will get direct sunlight as it will loosen the glue and the lace will fall off. When you get ready to change the lace to something else, use mineral spirits on a rag, dampen the lace with the spirits and it will come off easily. Send a picture when you finish. Like to see how it turned out,

    Hello Sonya,
    You could add your lace to the back of the glass by using Mod Podge. Colour your lace with Sharpies first. If you wish to make it look shiny add more layers of Mod Podge or overlay with Clear Contact. Enjoy.....
