craft thursday {but really friday}

the "not so stained glass" glass

i've been feeling under the weather the last few days.
so yesterday was a "no bueno" mommy day
and crafts were bottom on the list of "to do's"

i got this idea from my family fun magazine, july issue{love}

you start with a window in your house.
{this one is in between our livingroom and diningroom, perfect!}
take saran wrap and cover the portion
you want to "stain"
{i used painters tape to secure it to the window}
don't tell me i'm the only one that has a stash of tissue paper
just tucked away in a closet somewhere.
grab it.tear it.love it.
and you also need some littles complaining that they're
"ssssoooooo bored"
"don't know what in the world to do"
{yeah, they get pretty dramatic}
i used a glue stick {actually 3 total} to slather the saran wrap.
the generous the better.
then you let the littles go to work.
as they stuck, i worked underneath them and filled in the small holes
and glued down the overlapping pieces sticking up.
little bear loved it.  in fact, his exact words were,
"it's girl kind of beautiful."
{god love him}
as we were doing this, the boys got very excited.
for xmas we can do green, red, and white.
for halloween we can do orange, black and white and try to make ghosts in the window.
for valentines day we can do pink and red and white.
for the 4th of july we can do red, white, and blue.
for thanksgiving we can do orange, yellow, and green.

{seriously, it went on for a while.
i think they started to make up holiday's}
i'm very honored to say this one is for my birthday next week.
the boy's grandma allen makes stain glass art {the real purdy kind}
so they felt pretty awesome that they could do something similar.
 it's not perfect, but it's perfect to us!

happy craft thursday friday.
we have a football fundraiser this weekend
{yes, we just fininshed baseball and yes football starts in less than 2 weeks}
never a dull moment around here,
which is why i don't quite understand the,
we're ssssooooooo bbbooorrrrreeeeeddd."


happy weekend y'all!!!
