Stained glass window shrink film

Decorate while you winterize
  [vote for,

You can get stained glass adhesive window films, but they aren't much good for winterizing. You can get shrink films that go over your window frame that leave an air gap, for added insulating value in the winter, but they are all completely clear.

For some reason, you can't get a product that does both at the same time.

It would be fun to have a seasonal stained glass pattern on my little girls window.

This idea is too practical to be half-baked, unfortunately.

       I like this. And I think your daughter would too. +

       Love the idea. I'm not sure if the film used insulates or just hugs the glass surface, but faux stained-glass window films is already a thing. [link]   

       Yeah those are all attached to the surface, either via adhesive or static cling. non-insulating. I came up with this idea because I went shopping the internet for it and can't find it.

       There is a craft product called Angelina film which will work as well. Although it is not technically for insulating, it does heat shrink and comes in vibrant colors.
A little bit of after-the-fact pin striping would give your daughter that stained glass look.

       Nice! /bubblewrap/   

       How about bubble wrap with each bubble a different color? That would have good insulating value in front of a window also.

       Do they make bubble wrap in colors like you describe, [bungston]? That's a great idea if not.

       NB Lard. Mix with food colourants, then smear on the window. At best keeps the place insulated, at worst you get to eat it. Looking forward to the worlds's first coloured lard mandela.
