I decided that with our painted doilies we would make glittery Valentines sun catchers.
What you will need:
- Black cardstock
- Contact paper
- Doilies of your liking
- Wet wipes (for clean up)
- Baking sheet
At first I was thinking we would glue the glitter to the frame but then we decided to put the glitter all over the contact paper instead.
Cut out a suitable frame for your doilies.
TIP: If working with a toddler you may want have some extra space in the frame for placement of the doilies.
After you are satisfied with your frame, if you are making multiples like we were, use the cut out frame as a stencil and lightly trace it on to the remaining cardstock.
I chose to have the contact paper pieces not cover the whole frame. I wanted it about half way on the frame so I measured it out as shown below, leaving roughly two edges out.
The front piece of contact paper I wanted to be even smaller (as at this point I was still thinking of gluing glitter on the frame). I used one cut out piece and measured a slightly larger piece for it.
Once you have all your cutting done place the larger piece over the opening, as shown below.
TIP: If you aren’t planning on doing anything to the frame it is easier to make them the same size for the front and back.
Let your little one place the hearts as they desire.
For glitter portion you want to place the frames in to a baking pan or tray of some sort to contain all the glitter.
Sophia wanted to show the kids how to glitter 🙂 Video below
After glitter has been placed you will want to shake or (rub with a finger) the excess glitter around so they aren’t in big piles.
After you are done, place the remaining piece of contact paper over the top to seal it in.
It is ready to stand up on a window sill 🙂
