Cheap Christmas windows decoration
I came with this idea while watching my nephews playing with artificial snow.
Had to teach them some old tricks (: hehe :).
It is very cheap. You only need to buy the spray, which is no more than $4.
Some old paper or useless old ADs from a store and scissors are probably easy to find at every home.
Some weak glue or anything that will stick paper to the window for a while, until the spray does his job.
Get the paper and fold it like this:
The round line is where you will cut later. Cross-fold first the big square to smaller square 1/4 of the original.
Then fold the square to form a triangle. In 2 of the papers I did one more fold to make more figurines.
Cut the part that's staying uneven to form something round. (picture on the right).
When done, it must look like this:
Now simply put your imagination to work.
You need to imagine HOW the form you want to make will look IN HALF, before you use the scissors.
In basic: Every form in the nature tries to be symmetric. You just need to visualize its half, so you can carve it in the thick paper (mind the fingers ;) ).
The remaining forms can also be used:
Whatever you feel interesting to carve in paper will later become a canvas in the windows.
My nephews made some hearts and some enormous snowflakes.
They were quite disappointed that I did not left them alone with the spray, but with little of my help, it did acquire some prettier form:
