The call me crafty. Just kidding. They call me clumsy.
For example today a jar of purple tempra paint exploded in my face. My glasses were so covered I couldn’t see. I found paint in my nose, in my hair and on two different walls behind me.
Did I mention that it happened in a room full of kids? Do you know how to make kids laugh? I don’t mean just kinda laugh, I mean belly roll on the floor laugh? Let a bottle of paint explode in your face.
Then I continued my clumsy streak tonight when I uploaded the pictures for this craft and found out my camera had been on the wrong setting for every single picture.
I just wanted to bang my purple paint covered head against a wall.
That being said, this is a good idea. I’ve done it before on the Fall Mason Jars and it turned out great. It works – these pictures just don’t. Yes they have been edited to death.
I highly recommend you give this craft a try – just don’t use purple paint and don’t take pictures of it.
For Mother’s Day Mr. Byrd gave me a beautiful gift bag that I just could not throw away. I knew I wanted to do something with it. So I used the same technique as the Fall Mason Jar Crafts to paint part of the bag, but not all of it.
I had found these cute gel clings in the Target dollar spot and knew they would be perfect to use.
I placed the window clings on the bag where I wanted them to go. I knew that my plan was to cut out the finished project and frame it so I centered the words to fit within my frame.
Then I simply spray painted over the letters. You’re going to be tempted to spray the sides of the letters to get the best coverage but honestly you’ll get the best results if you only spray the paint from the top.
Once you’re done simply peel off the letters.
and when you’re done you’ll have the perfect gold accent sign.
You could leave it on the bag to make a personalized gift bag or you can frame it.
This technique can work on a variety of different materials. If you can’t find window clings that you want to use, foam stickers work very well.
