Make Unique Halloween Window Art
You can use an old window to create a fun and spooky DIY-Halloween-window-art – ideal for a vintage or rustic themed holiday.
I am a big Agatha Christie fan! I read the Poirot detective series in order from book one to thirty-seven, and adore them all. I wanted a couple of Christie-themed wall art for Halloween this year.
So I dug out an old window from my parents old barn and went to town with the Mod-hodgepodge!

Collect These Supplies
An old window
Lace – I have a Halloween lace tablecloth from Michael's
Mod hodgepodge Matt
foam brush or paint brush
ruler and scissors
The first thing I did was clean my Windows and the panes of glass. Once it was all clean I painted a strip around the frame with some black paint and a wide brush. Then I set aside set the window to dry.
While my paint dried, I used my glass is measured. I cut my lace and my chalkstock adjust the number of discs I had with my ruler and scissors.
next, I have my tips. To begin with, I apply a layer of Mod patchwork Mat is wiped on the front side of my glass. Then I carefully remove the top, put on the coated glass plate and pressed down slightly. Then I went over the top, starting at the corner, and a thick coat of Mod-hodgepodge Mat over the top.
I added the chalkstock by swiping a thin layer of Mod-hodgepodge Mat to the glass pane, and then press the chalkstock at the top. Then you keep even better, I ran over the surface of the chalkstock with my scooter.
The long section in the middle, I decided, would be perfect for my book pages. I snagged a copy of Hallowe’s Party from the flea market. I cut several pages. I painted a thin layer of Mod-pick-and-mix to the glass and also on the back of each page and you pressed one after the other on the window. Once the area has been covered, I the roller is rolled over the surface. Then I have a few more pages for the design and rolled it again. Then I painted a layer of Mod patchwork Mat on the top.
Then I still have the spiders. I added a DAB of hot glue on the back of each of my spiders and pushed her to the book, the page where I wanted to. To finish, I rubbed to bottom of chalk on the chalkstock, and then rubbed it. My chalk embellishments and it was ready to hang.
I love how my window turned out! I love the lace and as you can see, the wall peeking through the aging pages of the book, and the panel element.
It is a fun Halloween display and really can be customized to suit your style easily through the top and book-style, you choose. I think it would be nice to have it for Halloween with a cute kid’s book.
I know, this is definitely the star in my Halloween to come decor for years. I hope you all will try to make your own spooky window art sometime!
