My curtains of choice were cheap white ones from Walmart. Any color would work.
3 shades of acrylic paint plus some glitter paint!
Plastic bottles with different shaped bottoms!
Pour some paint and some glitter onto a paper plate. You need a puddle to work with, not the entire bottle!
Practice pressing a bottle into paint and stamping it on paper or canvas prior to working on the curtain!
Yes, it is so easy and not too messy that a 3 year old can do this successfully with guidance and supervision.
Love the overlapping design!
When you are comfortable with the process, lay out the curtain on top of a remnant piece of fabric or an old tshirt.
Stamp the fabric. FYI: if you have a lot of paint on the bottom of the bottle, it WILL bleed. However, these are kid created for a kid room, I liked to loose look of the prints.
The centers were stamped with a cork.
A couple of tips: less is more. I had to remind the stampers that we wanted to see white. Also, as soon as you are finished, hang the wet curtain. It's the perfect place to dry them!
A finished project! Curtains created by an 8 year old! And what did the 3 year old do?
She painted a masterpiece!
Isn't it great!
And then we had left over paint that HAD to be used!
Artwork for her room that matches her curtains! Oh yeah, that's why you are here!...
Done. Enjoy! www.faithhopeandart.blogspot.com
