What's cheap and easy way to achieve window shade texture?

I've experimented with actual window shades but the result wasn't to my liking.
I wanted something more defined.

For the test I was using a 2k blondie shooting through the blinds. I shot it with the instrument right up on the window, and then I backed it up to see what kind of difference it made.

To create a hard edge, you need a point source. Taking the blonde away from the window is the right direction, as it decreases the size of the source in relation to the window (and it will also make your shadows more parallel, akin to real sunlight).

Another option would be either a light with a clear lens, or an Ellipsoidal.
