Frosted glass windows

All sorts of trends take the internet by storm. There was the feta and tomatoes recipe, the Wednesday Addams dance, and the weird sound that made cats come to you. Now, we have a new contender — one that wants you to slop Elmer's glue all over your windows. And, weirdly, it isn't bad (apparently). 

If you're game to try it, all you need is some Elmer's glue, a roller, and some patience to add an expensive-looking, frosted finish to your windows. For those worried the Elmer's will melt or degrade, glue used as an adhesive can withstand temperatures of up to 80 degrees, so fingers crossed this is a safe bet. Some TikTokers even chose to add designs to their glued windows. 

It's a cheap, easy hack — but one TikToker had an even better one using a product intended for the purpose, which she claimed was actually cheaper than glue (see below). A hack might actually not be the best choice? Go figure. I will admit that if you’re looking to get creative, elmers glue has its perks. But if you’re looking for a simple, easy, cheap, and professional way to frost windows, this product does it!
