This week’s DIY blog is a little different. It’s less of a DIY and more of an inspirational art project. But you still do it yourself so it works! I found this idea (and art template) on Wit and Wistle, this super adorable DIY/arts/everything lovely blog.
First, gather your supplies. She suggested to use wet erase chalk markers for drawing on the window, but Michael’s was out so I used Crayola Window Markers and they worked just fine (and were cheaper)!
Next, print out the image you want to trace onto your window. On her blog post, she had a template with a cute hand drawn scripture from Philippians 2:15 ( … Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky). The image will print on two sheets of paper so just line up the lettering and tape them together. As you can see, I need a new printer cartridge (I’ll be setting up a PayPal account for donations)! 😉
Now this part was a little trickier for me because I live on the third floor of my house — you have to tape the image to the outside of your window. So I just got my arm as far as a could up the window to tape it but it worked!
Then just trace! Simple as that. Then you’re left with a really neat looking inspirational message. You can decorate it a little more like hers but I was drawing leaning over a small refrigerator so I was glad to be done tracing.
I decided to try this on my mirror too. But since you can’t trace onto a mirror very easily, I just tried to freehand it and copy another scripture design I found on Pinterest. I think it turned out fairly well and it’s neat to read scripture while you’re getting ready in the morning!
