Create beautiful painted window decorations without the hassle of cleanup, following this tutorial by Bobbi Perreault. Using clear contact paper, sketch out your design inspired by nativity stained glass.

Apply electrical tape for leading, then trace the components with a marker. Stick the contact paper onto the window and begin painting with a mix of craft paints and clear acrylic medium.

For larger areas, use a brush to spread the paint. The finished window will dazzle both in daylight and at night, though adjustments to background shading might enhance the central composition.
