Drape the background and side of the window with white lace curtains. Make a framework of light boards of an old castle, with a tower at one end, similar in shape to the pictures of old English castles seen in many books. After the frame work is made, cover it tightly with muslin, taking care to leave places for windows and doors at the proper places. Then take cards of buttons of different sizes and colors, and fasten them by pinning or tacking so as to cover the entire structure save the windows and doors. For windows use colored tissue paper, having previously drawn lines across same with ink to represent the window sashes, and fasten these securely from the back. The tissue paper windows can be made smoother by pasting; at night place a lamp within and the effect will be striking.

The bottom of the window is formed of thin boards, slanting from against the window pane to the back of window, and elevated at the rear to a height of about two feet. Upon this bottom is arranged in pleasing color-combinations opened bolts of narrow ribbons, caught up into graceful loops and folds. The back of window is formed of short metal rods from one foot to two feet in length, upon which are fastened bolts of ribbon arranged in graceful loops, after the manner shown in illustration.
