Ever since that time I was crowned queen of Pinterest, I have been in love with making window art with vinyl.
Oh, and I know we’re just a few days away from Halloween, but this is a great last-minute project if you’re not yet finished spookifying your space. If you have an electronic cutting machine, you can make some vinyl decals in no time, or you can pick some up on sale at the craft store. It will take you about 10 minutes — max — to apply the vinyl to an old window. The crustier the window, the better. We’re going for maximum spooky!
I may be guilty of hoarding old windows and cabinet doors from my yard sale and junking adventures. They’re perfect for all kinds of upcycling projects, from making mercury glass mirrors, and creating easy and changeable seasonal artwork.
Case in point: these Halloween window silhouettes I’ve used for the past two years in my Halloween decorating.
I used the following designs from the Silhouette store to create my Halloween window silhouette:
- Headless Horseman
- Spooky Night Sky
- Spooky Tree
- Cemetery Silhouettes
I cut each image separately, but when I applied them to the glass cabinet door, I layered some of the shapes on top of each other. For instance, I wanted it to look like the gravestones were behind the fence.
Vinyl is a quick and temporary way to create silhouettes on windows and seasonal artwork. If I decide to, I can just peel the vinyl off these doors and decorate them again for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I actually have a cool window art project planned for Christmas, so stay tuned…
