DIY Window Clings for Valentine’s Day
It seems like I’m starting out a lot of posts this way lately…busy moms need quick, easy solutions to everyday things we do. We can also use frugal solutions. We don’t always have to be Martha Stewart in order to do crafts and projects. They can be simple and still fit the bill. Believe me, I’m no Martha Stewart. With Valentine’s Day coming up, take a look at this great idea for DIY Window Clings.
DIY Window Clings are uper easy, fun for the kids and you can change them up as often as you want. No need to run out to the store to buy window clings for each Holiday and your kids can be creative.
All you need is some saran wrap and some dry erase markers. Of course if you don’t have both, you will have to run to the store. 😉 But once you have them, you’re set!
Take your saran wrap, line your window, give your kids the dry erase markers and set them free!
You now have DIY Window Clings!
Now saran wrap is not going to be as thick as regular window clings so it’s not going to just slap up on the window wrinkle free. I just tried to smooth it with my sleeved hand as I placed it on the window. Right from the roll, unrolling it onto the window as I went. I thought maybe I could use a credit card or something similar to get out the wrinkles and bubbles but that did more harm than good.
My kids, however, did not care that it had a few wrinkles in it and did not want to wait for perfection…they started drawing on it the minute I had it up on the window. They LOVE it.
DIY Window clings are perfect for any Holiday or just doodling in general. Granted we have this huge picture window that gives the kids a great creative space. 🙂 Give it a try and if you come up with some tips for those wrinkles, let me know.
