Marbled Flower Window Clings

Making your own window clings is a fun project for kids and a great way to celebrate the colors of spring. Don't be surprised if your kids want to make more window clings once they see how cool they turn out!

I decided to use the Scribbles Shiny 3D fabric paints. You can use any of the
Scribbles 3D paints if you happen to have them on hand. My favorite? The iridescent, so shiny!
-
- Scribbles Fabric Paint in colors of your shoice
- Black pen or marker
- White paper
- Parchment paper
- Toothpick
- Foam core board (optional)
- Pushpins
Use black marker to draw simple flower shapes onto a piece of white paper.
Place the drawing onto a piece of foam core board (a cork board works great too) and lay the parchment paper over the top. Use pushpins to secure everything in place.
Use the different color Scribbles to color in your flowers.
Add a dot of a contrasting color to the base color.
Use a toothpick to swirl the colors, being careful not work it too much or they will just blend together.

Set everything aside to dry for 6-8 hours, though overnight is best.
When completely dry, remove the pushpins and lift the parchment off the foam board. Carefully lift the edge of a flower from the parchment and peel the flower off the parchment. Press onto a window or mirror to display.
Note: If your windows are cold, it will be harder for your window clings to grab and they may not stick at all. In that case, use your window clings on a mirror or picture frame glass until the weather warms up.

This is a fun project for all ages and a great rainy day craft for the little ones to enjoy!

What a fun project Amanda! I would love to have those bright and sunny flowers on a couple of my windows. It's still so gray and dreary here. :)

After being in relationship with George for five years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called DR Mako and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 6pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: Makospelltemple@yahoo.com or call him :+2347054263874.
