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

Plastic wrap

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
