How to Decorate a Refrigerated Glass Display Case

Add some beauty and festivity to any bakery, deli, cafeteria or floral refrigerated glass display case. When celebrating Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day or any other holiday, you can spice up a plain refrigerated display case with glass paint pens and precut stencils. You don't have to be a skilled artist to create beautiful decorations on glass display cases. Precut stencils allow you to decorate display cases with a variety of designs to suit your decorating needs.

    • 1

      Remove any decals or sticky particles from the glass display case. Use window cleaner to thoroughly clean the glass.

    • 2

      Spray a light coating of the stencil glue on the back of the precut stencil. Place the stencil on the glass in the desired position. Stencil designer Alishia's Stencils recommends using strips of tape to hold stencils in place.

    • 3

      Shake the glass paint pen to mix the paint. (Check the label for any additional details on preparing to use the pen.)

    • 4

      Hold the glass paint pen as straight down as possible so that the paint can easily flow downward. Place the pen nib inside the stencil cutout and trace the shape.

    • 5

      Fill in the remaining area. Use small, straight, up-and-down strokes until the entire cutout area is filled in.

    • 6

      Carefully peel the sticky stencil from the glass.

    • 7

      Allow the glass paint to dry completely before stenciling any additional shapes or designs over it. While the paint is drying, move to a different area of the glass and stencil another design. Continue in this manner until your refrigerated glass display case is decorated as desired.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use temporary glass paint if you plan to change designs periodically. Check the paint pen label for instructions on removing glass paint.

  • For larger designs, substitute paint pens with bottles of glass paint and paintbrushes.
