Are you looking for a privacy window film? We needed this for our French doors at home and I created an easy and temporary faux stained glass look on a budget!
We have some French doors in our home that lead to our office. My husband started working from home full time and we wanted to create a little more privacy as he was participating in his video calls.
Here are the instructions for your privacy window film
I started by measuring the windows.
Next, I made a template with some scratch paper. This would help me cut the cellophane to the right size to fit within the windows.
I placed the template onto the cellophane square. I used a ruler and I drew a line to cut on with a dry erase marker. Using a dry erase marker allows you to remove any mark that remains.
I cut the cellophane on the lines. I continued doing this to all the squares I would need to cover all of the windows on the French doors.
When it comes to putting the cellophane on the window you have options. I wanted a temporary option so that I can remove the faux stained glass later.
I opted to use clear school glue. It dries clear, and it’s easily removed with soapy water. You can use as much or as little as you want. I placed a small dot of glue in each corner of the window.
I placed the cellophane square into the window and smoothed it out.
I continued gluing the windows and placing on the cellophane squares until all of the windows were covered and I let the glue dry completely.
Here is a quick view from the front. This project was easy and affordable. You could buy thicker cellophane which would help with any bubbles you might have.
I used cellophane wrap that I purchased on Amazon.
You can buy peel and stick film that has a pattern on it, you can use translucent contact paper, or you can use cellophane wrap.
Measure the surface, make a template, cut cellophane wrap, glue onto your windows.
Use thicker film to avoid bubbles before starting. If you have bubbles during the process use a credit card or other surface and push the bubbles to the edges by working from the middle out.
