Halloween Pumpkin Window Clings #1

My daughter is helping me with this one, finally. She took the photos also.

Materials Needed
Plastic sheet or glass
Sheet of Paper
Red Food Dye
Yellow Food Dye
White Glue
Black Permanent Marker
Green Permanent Marker

We happened to have these small photos frames from the Dollar Store just laying around the house so we decided they would work perfect for window clings, since they are made for glass. Open a bottle of white glue or pour some in a dish and add 3 drops of red and 4 drops of yellow (for whole bottle) reduce according to the size you pour in a dish. We only used 2 drops red and 3 drops yellow for our whole bottle and we think the shade is a little light. Shake the bottle or stir. Draw your pumpkin outline on a plain piece of paper and place under your plastic sheet or glass. My daughter's is green and mine is orange for Halloween.

Next we outlined our pumpkins with the orange colored glue.

Then we filled them in with more of the orange colored glue. Ours got a little messy, these cheap dollar store glue bottles leak badly. Make a stem if you like out of plain white glue, they will be colored in green with the marker.

Now we wait till tomorrow and see if they are dry, cross your fingers!

Well they are dry now, but we can't get them off the glass. So Attempt #1 is a failure. I now realize why you should use something more pliable like document protectors. We will attempt this again this afternoon.
