Easter Egg Window Clings

By: Cindy Hopper of Skip To My Lou

This project comes to us from Cindy Hopper of the popular crafting blog Skip to My Lou. Cindy, a mom of three who holds a bachelors degrees in art education, loves crafting and making homemade items for the holidays. Check out this great Easter project that is perfect for the kids.

Materials:

  • Roll of clear contact paper
  • Paint brushes
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Fine Sandpaper
  • Masking Tape

Steps:

  1. First cut a piece of contact paper from the roll. I cut squares about 5″ x 5″ because that was about the size of shapes I knew I would be cutting. Take a fine piece of sandpaper and lightly sand the shiny surface of the contact paper where you will be painting. Wipe off any dust. This step helps the paint adhere to the slick contact paper.
     
  2. Since we are often VERY messy when we paint I taped a piece of wax paper to the table. Tape the piece of contact paper shiny(sanded) side up onto the wax paper.

  3. Paint onto the contact paper square. Since my daughter is three I encouraged her to paint using lots of colors. I knew I would be cutting out Easter eggs so it really didn’t matter what or how she painted.

  4. Allow the painting to dry completely. I think she painted about 10 of these squares.
     
  5. Once the paint is completely dry take another square of contact paper the same size as your painting and peel off the paper backing. Cover your painting with the clear contact paper. Smooth out any bubbles.

  6. Trace around any shape of your choosing. I used an egg and bunny for my template.

  7. Cut out the shape.

  8. Carefully remove the paper backing. This takes some time —–make sure you are only removing the paper (the back of your painting should be sticky). If you use acrylic paint it is plastic enough that it has a tendency to peel away from the contact paper, so peel carefully! If it does peel away and it won’t stick back down just put a little glue stick between the layers.

  9. Once you are finished stick your silhouettes to your window.

    I would encourage older kids to paint their own designs and then cut out. I can imagine huge flowers and birds! Nothing is sweeter than kid’s art!
