Picture of Old Window Art

There are many tutorials and ideas for projects out there involving old windows. This one is a project I decided to do with an old window I got from work. I am a Glazier (meaning I work with glass) so we do window, door, and garage door installations. Any time you install you generally uninstall an old piece of whatever. So free windows are a quick commodity for me. I love origami and so I wanted to do a project involving the two.

Lets get to it!

Step 1: Materials involved

Picture of Materials involved

For this project I needed (and if you desire to do the same you will need):

  1. an old window; any size will do
  2. tissue paper
  3. a ruler
  4. a hard, smooth surface
  5. Methyl Cellulose glue
  6. Exacto knife
  7. and a sense of creativity to imagine what design or image you wish to create

Some of the other items that aren't pictured but that I did end up using:

  • razor blade
  • Modge Podge
  • masking tape
  • towels
  • rubbing alcohol
  • a sharpie
  • glass cleaner
  • and, of course, my wife's input ;)
Such a fun project to make with an old window :)
