As a long time supporter of all things lace I will search for anything lace and every once in awhile you come across something grand! Like this photo of lace window screens. I realized that these were just photos sans tutorial but window screens are easy enough so I tried it out on our broken door screen. I was so pleased with the results I decided to go ahead and do the kitchen windows too! This is all it took...
  • Original Screen Frame
  • Scrap Lace (enough to cover the screen in one piece)
  • Scissors
  • Spray Adhesive or Packing Tape (tape needs to be strong enough to hold fabric in place)

  1. Remove any mesh screening from frame. If you wish to leave the mesh intact, that is perfectly fine. 
  2. If you have spray adhesive, wet the edges of the frame just enough so the lace will stick.
  3. Stretch lace out over the frame using either the spray adhesive or tape to hold the other sides in place.
  4. Pop the screen back in to the window and pull the lace taut. Make sure the screen is tight enough so the lace does not slide through. 
  5. Use your scissors to cut off the excess fabric. 
  6. Step back and admire your lace windows! Before and after photos following the jump...
