Are you busy decorating the house for the holidays?? We sure are!! The girls helped me decorate the front door for Winter over the weekend. It was a real group effort!
Since painting inexpensive coffee filters is such a popular activity in this household, we decided to use that approach. Again. Speaking of coffee filters, over the next couple of days we’ll be featuring LOTS of holiday craft projects that use them. Be sure to grab some so you can craft along with us!!
I always love how bright and colorful they look — so cheerful!!
I cut them up into snowflakes. They are very thin, so I cut a whole bunch of them at once. Very quick and easy! Clara helped stick them on the window! We used double sided tape. I put pieces of tape on the window, and she placed the snowflake on top.
Emily helped draw lines on the snowflakes with marker!
And when Clara wasn’t looking, we tried something I’ve never done before — painted on the window with acrylic paint!! The last time we visited the art store, Emily asked what type of paint they use to decorate the windows, and it turns out it’s acrylic. It worked really well, and washes off easily with soap and water! (It may stain clothes/furniture, so be careful.) It’s a great project for the older kiddos!
We added snowflakes and a border of holiday lights — it was SO much FUN!!
While we were busy working on this, a few neighbors drove by… slowed down to look, and gave us big smiles!!
I love how something as simple as coffee filters and paint turned our ordinary door into a unique piece of art! I can’t help but smile every time I open the door!!
By the way, the tree was cut from a roll of plain ol’ brown paper. Festive, fun, and very frugal!
