Window pictures…

Posted on

We are very lucky to live on a great street with gorgeous neighbors. The lovely Stephanie is two doors down from us, and she is always coming up with crafty treats for the children, which is very exciting and as Im sure you can imagine they love stopping by to see her!

This week, she ‘shared’ with us a set of window art paints she had used with her grandchildren. These paints are very cool – you trace a design using the paint onto a piece of clear plastic, leave it to dry and then peel it off the entire work of art to create a picture that will stick to any window. Who knew?  I had never seen anything like these before…

Both children are so into it – even Carter managed perfectly well filling in the designs (I drew the outline in black paint for them). He can be very careful when he wants to be… and any small mishaps can be scraped off when the paint is dry.These were their first attempts… they are so proud of them. We had to invite Stephanie and Joe over to see their creations.The pictures don’t do them a lot of justice, but when the early morning sun is streaming through the window they look gorgeous!Goodness what a messy dining room table that is peeking through behind Carter… we had been making origami!

    Have you ever made the window clings with white washable glue and food coloring? Sounds like this is the same kind of thing. The children’s artwork looks great on the windows! Tell them this Nana of 4 thinks they did a great job!

      Thanks I will do – you know the paint is a lot like colored pva glue (which is the same sort of glue I think you are talking about), so I bet you could make your own. When these run out we will have to give that a try!

    What a clever idea. I love it. May try it in my daughter’s room.

    What a great idea. I’m not much good at painting but I even fancy making some myself. Perhaps when my granddaughter is here………? if I can find the stuff.
