Repurposed Window Nightlight

Something to add some light to the guest room. It sorta goes with my beach theme.
I used twigs from Walmart. Crackle painted the window. I used white duct tape to tape on the twigs and tacks to hold the lights. I did it this way in case I got bored with it and wanted a different theme in the guest room. Now my husband has to hang it. Also used battery LED lights for easy on/off function.
You can see the back of it. Duct Taped the lower twigs on back. Left the rest loose. Make sure you wrap tape under window so no twigs fall out.
Close up - just tacked LED lights.

The back of project. My husband put two small blocks in top corners of windows so it didn't lay flat onto wall. Then he used eye hooks and wire to hang. He also screwed in the battery pack to the lower side so it couldn't be seen and it's easy to turn off and on. I may keep this in the livingroom :)

  • I have a window that I turned into a morror with some help from some mirror spray paint. Its in front of my fireplace right now because the gas logs aren't working. I think I'll add lights behind it to give off the illusion of a fire.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love your idea! We tore down our old house and rebuilt on the same site. This window is from the original house. Dried materials came from the property, too. I love how it turned out.
