Christmas Window Decorations
Your house will be the most Christmas-y on the block with these Christmas window decorations.
What You'll Need:
Five 6×6-inch pieces of cardboard
Dimensional squeeze paint: red, white, green, glittering gold
- Trace the patterns you can download here onto individual pieces of paper, and then tape each piece of paper to a piece of cardboard. Tightly cover each pattern with plastic wrap and tape the edges of the plastic wrap to the back of the cardboard.
- Carefully paint the plastic wrap using the pattern as a guide; refer to the photograph for color direction. Work with one color at a time and let each color set for ten minutes before you paint with the next color. To begin painting, outline the part of the pattern you're going to paint; lightly touch the tip of the bottle to the plastic wrap, carefully squeeze the bottle, and pull (don't push) the tip along the outline; the paint should be about 1/8 inch thick.
- Then paint inside the outlined area, working from left to right and top to bottom. If you make a mistake, wipe the paint off with a paper towel. If the tip of the bottle clogs, use a straight pin to open the hole and then squeeze a bit of paint on a paper scrap to regain a smooth flow.
- Let the paint dry for 24 hours. Then peel the decorations off the plastic wrap. Trim off any paint that has spread beyond the outline of the decoration.
