Decoupage postcards from around world into panes or pictures of a favorite city, like Paris.
Paint frame to match your child's room. Attach clothespins (also painted in a coordinated color) all around outside of window. As you child grows attach school pictures to panes and let them use clothespins to showcase their drawings, report cards and other mementos. When child graduates you have a ready-made decoration.
Make etched glass designs in panes or make faux stained glass out of windowpanes. Your local craft store should have everything you need to do this, from instructions to materials.
Use window to create a fun decorative piece in kitchen. Get a shelf same width as window and paint it same color. Put shelf on wall just above window so they look like one piece. Put mug hooks evenly spaced along bottom of window frame and use them to hold cute mugs, wire whisks, ladles, potholders or other items. Put recipe books along with a few decorative items that match your kitchen on shelf, such as a vase of flowers, decorative plates or a nice clock.
