DIY glass decal tutorial

– color glass decal
– scissor
– sharpen knife.

Here is my window. It look boring and I decided to decorate it.

I chose this color glass decal. It cost about 0.5 $.

Then I chose the pattern I like. Here I used the half flower patterns of  Shelli Gardner. I will use the pictures to explain how to do

First draw the patterns on a newspaper.

Stick them on the glass ( remember mark before).

And this is the result 🙂

One of the beautiful things I like from this blog: (link)

And I decided make one thing like that. This is my DIY.

The patterns I copied  from Decor Elements book of Shelli Gardner. The old papers I took from old Russian electronic book. My husband wanted to throw it away, but I retained because I liked the pictures of electric circuits. Maybe it reminded me about the youth.
