How to Use Double Sided Tape to Make Window Pane Dividers

Large picture windows allow you to look outside without hindering your view. However, some people find them plain and boring. Window panes can add interest to your windows, but replacing them completely is not always practical, especially if you rent a home or apartment. The perfect solution is faux window panes made with invisible double-sided tape. Your windows will appear to be paned, but the trim will peel up fairly easily when you are ready to move on.

A paned window can lend a charming, cottage quality to your home.

Step 1

Measure the height and width of the window and cut ½-by-2 inch wood edging to the correct lengths. You will need one strip as long as the window is high and two as long as the window is wide. Cut each of the two pieces that are the same length in half.

Step 2

Clean the window well with ordinary glass cleaner. Let it dry completely.

Step 3

Apply a strip of double-sided tape to the back of each wooden strip. Peel the top plastic off of the tape on the uncut strip of wood edging. Lay the strip along the center of the window from top to bottom.

Step 4
