Last week the weather was quite dreary and we ended up spending a lot of time indoors. I needed something to keep the boys busy and thought a craft would be fun. Since I didn't have the energy to deal with paint, I turned to an old favorite - contact paper and tissue paper.
|supplies used: contact paper, tissue paper, scissors, pencil, |
glue stick (not pictured), and construction paper cut in to a 1" frame
Step 1: draw shapes on tissue paper and cut them out
|big buddy cut out the volcanos and lava|
- i cut out all the other shapes
Step 2: cut contact paper to size of black construction paper frame
Step 3: peel off back of contact paper and stick to construction paper creating a "window"
Step 4: place tissue paper shapes inside the "window" in your desired design
Step 5: cut a large piece of tissue paper to the size of frame/window - this is our blue background
Step 6: go around construction paper frame (sticky/tissue paper side up) with a glue stick
Step 7: press the tissue paper (from step 5) down on top of the frame and contact paper
Step 8: trim up any messy edges
Step 9: display on a window

We had a lot of fun doing this craft and it turned out to look quite impressive - it's added a lot of pizazz to our dining room.
