The Easiest Way to Make Ridiculously Cool Puffy Paint Window Clings

window-clings-window-FB Every holiday I snap up a little packet of dumb gooey window clings from Target and lament the fact that there are hardly any in there. And then I start to think about how much they cost to make in China, and then I laugh at how foolish I am to spend so much money on them. Then I toss them in the cart along with the 13 other things I don’t need from Target, and shimmy on home.

Aren’t these colors of puffy paint great? They’re all neon and bright. They look great with the sun glowing through them. I made some flowers to celebrate Spring beautiful Spring, and then I started making little bullseye-shapes, because I LOVE THEM.
