Since I do not live in a house and instead live in an apartment which I love ( no mowing for me!) I have limited "front of the house" parts to decorate. So what better to decorate than the windows. I had seen on here before that you can paint on windows with acrylic paint and it wipes of with window cleaner or soap and water when you are done. Before my DBF would let me go full steam ahead we tested a small patch once it worked I was given free reign!

Here is the first window done.(The upstairs neighbor guys across the way were watching me the whole time and giggling when I'd smear a bloody handprint on the window   Cheesy ) Also it's kind of hard to see the bottom half because of the screens but this picture is better than the daytime one where you can me in it .


This is the second window I did. It says Tick or Treat, Smell My feet, Give me something good to eat! and I also painted some little candies on it. It has a string of Black,purple, orange, green lights around it!


I need some help though I have one window for sure I still want to do but don't know what to do with it.  ( I also have one more but it isn't as visible from the front but is right next to the front door and is about half the size of the others.)


Well... Let me know what ya'll think!

Love the bloody one!  What about a black silhouette in the window?

OH MY GOSH THIS ROCKS!!!!!  I also live in an apartment and my friends and I always decorate for the holidays!  This is a great idea!!!!  I like the dark person in the window, I feel like it that first link would match well with the Help window.

Hahaha, I wish I got trick or treaters at my place. My parents house hasn't gotten a single kid asking for candy (besides my little brother and me Wink) for 20 years and my new apartment didn't get a single one last year, I sort of doubt this year will be different Tongue

This is creepy and awesome Cheesy

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

I was going to suggest the silhouette too, maybe one of you with your arms up in the air and an arm coming from the side with an axe in the air?

Would look good beside the bloody hand prints.

SO awesome! I love the bloody hand prints! How much scrubbing did you have to do to get the paint off the window? Like a large amount or a small amount? Because I'd love to try this if it didn't make me work for hours getting it off =)

Well I messed up on two letters and all I did was spray some window cleaner on them and use and old rag and took make a couple of minutes so for the whole window I don't see it taking very long. Smiley
