Frosted Glass Vinyl


In our home we have this lovely window above our front door where occasionally the sun would shine right through and pretty much blind you as you walked by.  We knew we needed something to cover the window but weren't quite sure what we wanted.  Then I came across this frosted glass vinyl.  It's a really good solution because it looks pretty, it's cheap, and it's not permanent.  That way we can always peel it off when we're ready for a change. 

Here's how I did it:
1. Cleaned the window (I know it looks kinda dirty in this picture, sorry!)
2. Measured the window to know the exact size I needed.
3. Created my vinyl design in the Silhouette program (I chose a basic quatrefoil pattern).
4. Cut my vinyl just like any other vinyl on my Silhouette.  I actually cut it in a large rectangle and then trimmed it down to the shape of my window once it was done.  
5. Applied transfer paper to the vinyl for easier application.
6. Kindly asked my husband to climb up a ladder and apply the vinyl (I don't like heights!).
7. Stood below and admired my new frosted glass window! 

It really wasn't too difficult.  I was nervous to do it, but am really happy with the results.  If you have more questions about this project, feel free to email me (madebymeech@hotmail.com).

You can buy frosted glass vinyl here.  I also like to get transfer paper to make the application process a little easier.
