Hand-Painted Seasonal Window Ideas
Almost any paint works for creating seasonal window designs. (window ornaments - 1 image by John Sfondilias from Fotolia.com)

Glass painting is an easy and versatile craft, not to mention a cheap way to decorate windows. You can hand paint seasonal designs on clean glass with craft, acrylic, powdered, watercolour, puffy, kids and glass paints. You can even mix food colouring and white glue to create your own peel-away window paint. As long as you start with a clean window and remember that the design is visible from both sides, any material and style combination will work.

Sweet Spring

Combine soft colours of glass paint and floral shapes to hand paint a window with a sweet spring theme. Dark and light green paint strokes along the bottom of the window provide a wild field look. Large white, yellow, pink and lilac daisies sprout up from among the green blades to provide a splash of colour.

A light and fuzzy trim of sky blue paint decorates the edges of the window not already filled with grass. Fuzzy white clouds scattered randomly across the top of the window and the edge of a yellow sun in the upper corner form an open sky appearance. A bluebird decorates the middle area between the clouds and flowers for an uplifting accent.

Sunny Summer

Find or create a stencil of a 2-inch wide sun shape to create a seasonal window design with a cheerful summer theme. Yellow sun shapes form a decorative trim around the edge of the window, and a large yellow sun decorates the middle of the window. A pair of black sunglasses and flickering yellow-orange flames adorn the large sun for a cartoonish design. White-tipped blue waves along the bottom of the window and white seagull shapes across the top provide colourful accent decorations.

Fall Leaves

Use richly coloured acrylic paints to create a seasonal window painting with an autumn leaf theme. A black-outlined, brown swirl-filled, half-tree shape with delicate branches decorates the right side of the window. Red, orange, gold and yellow leaf shapes randomly cover the branches and lower window to create the appearance of falling leaves.

The fall-themed window can remain simple, or you can add colourful background decorations to create a fancy design. A row of grinning jack-o-lanterns along the remaining bottom window area adds a cheerful feel to the design. Several small, black, flying witch shapes across the middle of the window add a spooky feel to the design.

Frosty Winter

Get creative with basic snowman shapes and kid-safe paint. A row of tall, blue-outlined, white snowmen decorates the lower third of the window. A carrot nose, charcoal mouth, patterned scarf, patterned hat and button eyes form each snowman's unique appearance. Fake frost spray decorates the outer edges of the remaining two-thirds of the window for an icy accent. Delicate blue and white snowflake shapes provide subtle decorations for the empty area above the snowmen.
