To Make This Fall Leaf Stained Glass Window You Will Need:
The first step is to choose a wood framed window. You can paint the wood frame if it is not already painted.
Now, in the glass panels you will be applying the fall leaves. This will make colors, just like stained glass.
I like to use tissue paper cut out into leaf shapes. You can also use silk leaves in fall colors and even real leaves from the yard. Real leaves from the yard will eventually discolor, but you can always scrape them off later.
If you decide to go the paper out then have a little fun playing with the leaf color on yoru stained glass window. You can use cream paper, orange paper, gold paper, or silver paper. Mix and match colors and sizes of leaves.
Now, go ahead and paint some decoupage on the back of the silk leaf or real leaf or paper leaf.
Press the leaf onto the front of the glass window pane. You want to press about for fall leaves on each pane. This is the time o create a pattern or a look.
I like to use four different leaves in each pane of the window. It is a good idea to leave a little space in between each leaf, so you can see the frosting medium in between the leaves.
Now, let the colorful leaves dry on the window.
Once they are dry flip the window over and spray frosting medium or frosting spray paint on the back of the window panes.
You will need to tape off the wood parts of the window with newspaper and masking tape.
Once the frosting medium has dried you can remove the tape and paper.
Now, if you want to hang this fall leaf stained glass looking window on your front door as fall decorating screw an eye hook in on the left and right side of the back of the window. Tie a wire between the two eye hooks and use this to hang the window.
You can also create tall windows using the Fall leaves as decoration and lean one on either side of the front door. This fall leaf décor is elegant, whimsical, and so much fun to make!
