The kids and I got our craft on the day before St. Patrick’s Day. Thanks to Scotch® Tape for this awesome idea! The method for making these is rather simple and you could use this technique for any holiday. I’m looking forward to experimenting with it in the future.
First you’ll want to gather your supplies. We used:
- Clear Con-Tact paper (make sure it is the removable kind)
- Colored masking tape (we used Scotch® because it was available at Walmart)
- Washi tape
- Permanent marker
- Shamrock template (I found a free printable online and shrank it to the size I wanted)
Cut out shamrock template from paper, or draw one and cut out if you don’t have a printer. Unroll Con-Tact paper and trace several shamrocks on there. Cut out shamrocks. Lay Con-Tact paper shamrock flat on table, grid-side down. Use masking and washi tape to make stripes on shamrock. Decorate entire shamrock, then carefully peel the entire thing off the table. Cut out around shamrock shape, trimming off excess tape from the edges. Slowly peel paper backing off shamrock and affix it to the window. Repeat!
