Dollar Store Stained Glass...

Remember these? They've been circulating the blogosphere for awhile, they are double paned picture frames from the dollar store. I bought a bushel of them, so I've been looking for any excuse to use them :)

In my new craft room (which is STILL not completely unpacked), I have 2 HUGE windows. I'm in love with my windows because my previous craft cave got um.....ZERO natural light. I knew right off the bat I was not putting curtains in my craft room.

Still, I wanted something pretty for the windows. I decided to try the modge podge/food coloring technique. I used pink and orange and literally poured it onto the glass...then I used some paper towel to stipple it. Then I used my Cricut and my new Lyrical Letters cartridge (I believe this is my new favorite!!!!!!!) to cut out a couple words and modge podged then onto the glass as well. I painted the frames white, added a little bow and here they are.....

And here they are IN the window!!!!!! Love the way the light comes through them!!!!!!! I have SOOOOOOOOOOO many ideas for these babies!!!!!!! (not sure why the one picture looks yellowish, its actually a really nice shade of orange...)

I LUVVVVVVVVVVVVV my Dollar Store stained glass....sooooooooooo much cheaper than curtains! :)
