i finally made a picture frame out of an old window but I cannot find anywhere that tells/shows how to adhere the pics to the glass! Front would be easiest but will collect dust. If they’re taped from back, the tape will show. Help!

    You can just glue the pictures on with plain old Elmers. Put the glue on the picture fronts and smooth it out, then place on glass and "squeegee" the glue out with a plastic card or Brayer. Since the glue will ooze out and smear on edges of the glass, just wipe this off till it is gone. This will not hurt the pictures which can later be soaked off if desired. Or if you don't want to use the actual glossy photos, you can print them on paper and use the paper copies.

    You could also use mod podge for the same effect but elmers glue would work just fine too. Unless you want to remove and change out the photos? Then I would just use a little tape carefully across the back edges.

    You could cut poster board to fit the whole back of the window... and use double sided tape to hold the photos on.... staples or thumb tacks could hold the poster board on the back of the window.

    Insert pic on back of glass facing out -cut a pice of thin poster board to fit snug on back -put small drop of Crazy glue on each corner and at mid edge just enough to hold to wood edge .

    Mod Podge is the way to go.

    Tape onto frame at the back (If not large enough pics-stick on to card and then use drawing pins at each corner.

    I used white glue. Just flip the picture face down against the glass and "paint" picture and entire pane. Dries clear with a slight frosted look.

    You can also use scrapbooking “ corners” they come in clear, white, black, gold and silver. You can stick them to the glass and then slide the corners of your pictures into the scrapbooking corners. The best part about using these is that you can change your pictures whenever you want without having to mod podge .
