Basement Window To Wall Decor

Seriously Cute Bedroom Art!
I love using "trash" to make something AWESOME!
We have had this window sitting around forever (a curbside find).
I had MANY ideas for it and never got around to doing any of them....
Finally decided it was time to do something with it!
I have been making things for my sons bedroom, we are going from baby to toddler!
He is totally into anything with wheels, so naturally cars and trucks and the like is the theme.
This project was perfect and CHEAP- free actually, using things I already had!

Old Window
White Paint
White Felt
Black Fabric
(size of your window)
Modge Podge
Staple Gun
Saw Tooth Hanger

Here is how I did it:


I sanded the window a little, not much I wanted it to look
rustic/shabby. Then painted it white.

(All Painted White)


I looked up clip art for a car, truck and a train in google.
Saved them and opened them in paint, I played around with the sizes
once I got them to look how I wanted I printed them out.
Once printed I cut them out and cut each onto white felt.

(Pictures I Found)


I applied modge podge to the back of my felt cut outs.
I took the cut outs and place them in the center of each window,
modge podge side towards the glass.
I centered them by looking at it from the front.


Next I took the black fabric and cut it to the size of the window.
 Used the staple gun and stapled it to the back of the window.
Only one the outside edges, not the middles.
Be careful not to staple near the glass! 
Then added the sawtooth hanger to the top.

Here is your finished product!

If you decide to make this, I would love to see it!

Thank You For Stopping By!
