1. Gather your materials. Cut your 2x4 into 4 24-inch sections. Usually, someone at The Home Depot ® can do this for you!

2. Create a frame with your wooden pieces, and nail them together. We recommend two nails at each joint.

3. Use a staple gun to attach your netted lights to the inside border of the frame. Just be careful not to staple through any wire.

5. Cut a 27x24-inch piece from your roll of Caprice sheer paper. Cut your VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back White Tape into 2 24-inch pieces and 2 27-inch pieces. Stick the loop side (aka the "soft" side) of your tape onto all four edges of the paper. Trim off any overlapping tape.

8. Now, it's time to add some window panes. Cut a piece of VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back White Tape that is 24 inches, and another that is 27 inches. Use a ruler to find the midpoint of your window, and attach your panes to create 4 window sections.
