It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Looking back through this old Christmas Window is charming.


This DIY Christmas window is easy:
*Just remove any old glass in an old window
*Wire brush any old paint off
*Staple a length of artificial garland to the bottom        corner and add some berries and twigs. You can't see in the photo, but I added lights too so it looks really good at night.
* For the doily swag, I stenciled letters on fabric doilies, folded the top back and glued a pocket to slide the ribbon through.  Swag it and attach to the back of the window with tacks so it can be removed or changed whenever you like.

This window looks great all the way through winter!

NICE IDEA. I HAVE MY OLD PICTURE WINDOW HANGING IN MY BEDROOM. PAINTED IT AND DID'NT REALLY DO ANYTHING ELSE TO IT.
