Glass Roman Shade

Suspend etched glass panels with strips of fabric, bias tape or ribbon for a unique window treatment.


Suspend etched glass panels with strips of fabric, bias tape or ribbon for a permanent window treatment when the view isn't so great.


Materials and Tools:

etching spray
fabric, bias tape or ribbon
glass panels
glass cleaner
cup hooks


1. Clean the glass as needed. Arrange the glass panels on a protected surface and place something underneath each center to raise them off the table.

2. Spray the etching material to coat the front according to the manufacturer's directions. Let dry. Turn the panels over and repeat for the other side. Let dry.

3. Sew fabric into a long strip (or use bias tape or ribbon). Arrange the panels on a flat surface as they will hang. Fold the fabric in half and place the fold so it's touching the bottom of the first piece of glass. Tie a knot at the top of the panel and slide the back side of the fabric behind the next glass panel. Repeat until all the panels are secured with the fabric strip and add more strips as necessary to suspend the panels.

4. Tie a knot or bow at the top of each ribbon and hang corresponding cup hooks to hold the panels in the window.
