Storm and screen windows made with wood frames may seem old-fashioned, but they can last many decades and seal effectively if properly maintained. Since the screen is an issue and hard to attach safely, try the plastic mesh they sell for quickstich. HOW SMART YOU ARE to lay out all your baubles to see how you want to organize and do the project!
Our main floor bathroom has a window that sits high up (no one can see in and the view out is of the treetops). I started with creating a frame for my window using the 1×3 boards, corner brackets, Gorilla Glue, wood filler and paint. Cut screen to fit inside the wooden frame with enough room to fold under borders and to staple to the back side of the frame.
You may think to stop here but when I hung the frame (in the daylight), the stenciled design wasn’t visible.
So I cut a piece of white vinyl table cloth to size (a bit bigger than the inner space of my frame with an extra inch around the borders to staple it into place) then I added vinyl decals to the white tablecloth.

To add weatherstripping that can make wood storms serious protection against cold-air infiltration. Secure the joint with a long bar clamp or a pipe clamp to make sure it will go back together tightly; you may need to scrape out debris and built-up paint. I was just wondering if you could send me a close-up pic with the earrings on the screen part so I can have a better look please. I just need to know what the dimensions are on your frame to get an idea of how big to make it. It’s best to miter the joints, add glue to the joints and brackets (be sure that screws are not longer than depth of frame).
You may not be able to find an exact match for old screen mold, but you can probably find a pretty close substitute. Working from the center toward the ends, staple the screening to the wood, pulling it taut as you go. We have a local store that sells salvaged supplies such as doors, windows, etc incredibly cheap.
