Need Help!

levetaJuly 14, 2008

I'm not a crafty person, but enjoy trying. I have some old 6 pane windows that I would like to do something with. I seen where people hang them from chains. I was thinking of putting material in some of the panes. What would be a good adhesive to do this with? I do have some Mod podge for outdoors, but is there anything else.


All sugestions welcome....

Craftylady, Thank You!! I love the site you gave me. So many wonderful Ideals. I have come to this site for yrs. I like reading the different ideals. But now it's more then just reading. I'm opening a shoppe this fall to sell my gourds and pumpkins and indian corn and are adding handmade items. Useful thing more then nick nacks. So easy ideals are up my ally.....

leveta, no need to be a painter to do this, I just blew up a pattern I liked and traced it on the glass with a marker, the rest was like coloring, sooo easy! would love to see your gourds, I have played around with them some, hope your shop goes well for you!

Oddie where did you find patterens like that and what did you use to trace it with? I have made what I call patchwork pots. I took terra cotta pots and bandanas and cut them up and used that outside MP and put the Bandana on in a pattern. I pressed flowers and got the square candle holders from $$ store and use reg. MP and put them on and then used white tissue paper over top then outlined it with copper tape to give it a finished look. Made a couple of material wreaths. I'm learning, but slow. I pick up alot from you all.

I just did a search for stained glass patterns, found one I thought would be easy, used a black marker to trace pattern, that becomes the leading, then painted inbetween the lines for the flowers and leaves.
your patchwork pots sound beautiful! do you have any photo to share with us? sounds like you are a crafty person, never know if we can do something till we try.
