Windows windows windows have more coming up for Halloween 🎃 exciting, for now let’s get on sculpting, glittering and painting for homecoming parade, school entry and nail studio #windowtreatments#windowart#windowpainting
I look at this photo that @meandmygirl snapped of me lettering the window of @ampersandthornbury a couple of weekends ago and I feel like I’m definitely channelling a bit of my grandfather. .
My Grandad was a traditional signwriter and I have very vivid early memories of him teaching me how to write my name backwards. I remember him explaining to me how, as I’d been blessed a fellow left-hander, this was a great skill that I’d be able to master and utilise in life — turns out he was right! Though at the time it was just a great party trick for a 6 year old 😍
Not sure he’d approve of the unorthodox Posca pen as my tool of choice these days and I do wish he was around to guide me in real life, but I know he’d be pretty proud that I’d got the balls to make my own ‘brass’ 🤑 doing something that I really love and that he’d inspired. .
There’s my Monday morning thoughts for you today 💫 hope you’re all feeling inspired this week ❤️😎
💛 All You Need is Love 💛...
But when making this craft, you'll also need crayons, wax paper and an iron. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was younger I made this crayon craft for my windows. Decided to make it for my daughter since we had some broken crayon pieces. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💛 Grate crayons to shavings (be very careful not to hurt yourself! I used up the broken pieces from my daughter's crayon box).
💛 Arrange the crayon shavings however you want between two pieces of wax paper.
💛When ironing the wax paper, use something to protect both the iron and whatever surface you are using. I used an old sheet. Also use lowest setting on iron. (Make sure little ones are not anywhere near when using the iron) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💛Cut whatever shape you want, keep in mind crayon pieces may break off, so I also cut out a paper frame. I glued the crayon heart between the paper frame. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💛Hang up on window and enjoy the view!
