WINDOW SHRINE


I love the idea of making a shrine, and this window pendant kit from Retro Cafe Art (you're supposed to hang it from a chain) really caught my eye.

It comes as a collection of wooden pieces which I painted and antiqued before adding the picture and then the window struts on top - I looked through a lot of images to find something that worked with the pattern of the struts. I added some paper lace and a gold crown, plus some gold outliner as a decoration. The whole thing is just 2" high so its quite tiny and it was rather a case of less is more - but I do think the result is rather sweet and like to have it on my shelf.

I love how the child leans in on the woman and they peer through the window.
