Faux Stained Glass Window Art
Looking for a fun project for the kids? This faux stained glass window project is a fun way to dress up your windows, and easy to remove using Washable Finger Paint.
During quarantine I was looking for a fun way to entertain my kids. I had seen multiple people using this concept on concrete with sidewalk chalk so I gave it a try on our windows using washable finger paint that we had on hand.
The first step is to tape off your pattern. I used basic painter's tape to tape off a geometric pattern across all of the windows.
Using washable finger paint, we painted each section with different colors. A thin coat will dry quickly. If you want a deeper hue you can go back over the first layer once it's dry.
When you're all finished, simply remove the tape! You're left with a gorgeous faux stained glass window. My kids LOVED this, and said it made them feel like they were in a castle!
From the outside, it's a very subtle view. We used it as a backdrop for a handmade sign I made to thank all of the essential workers!
I left our paint on for at least a few weeks. And because I'm a sloppy painter, there was even quite a bit that sat on my wood window trim during that time. All of it easily wiped off with window cleaner.
Have fun with it!
