DIY Wall Hanging: Bring Colorful Windows Back to Life!

These colorful windows have something mysterious to them. They make you want to believe in all the good in the world, and to happily sing Imagine along with John Lennon.

Like cathedrals, Traditional Islamic architecture used to be full of these peaceful rainbow windows. It was not just about mosques. If you visit some old houses in Iran from Qajar and Abbasi era, you’ll see they’ve used this architecture, too. It’s a shame people can’t live in those anymore! I just adore them! I always thought if we all could eat, laugh and live with colors showering on our faces, life would finally have some harmony and peace. :)

As I told you, I always loved to live in a house with stained glass windows. So one day I figured, well, why not!? If I can’t have colorful windows, at least I can have a colorful wall hanging!

I’m so excited to show you the result! (I just don’t want to spoil that exciting feeling of “wow, I wonder what that is gonna become”. But I guess you can just scroll down and find out. But come on. Really, don’t you wanna feel curious just for a couple of minutes?)
