It's time for CAKE! DIY Window Clings with Mod Podge

One Artsy Mama
I am super-duper excited to share this idea with you all!  Amy at One Artsy Mama and I have been working on an idea that I think you will love.  It gives us a chance to craft AND commit random acts of kindness.   It's called CAKE.

Here's how it works. 
CAKE stands for: Crafty Acts of Kindness Everywhere

The first Monday of each month, Amy and I will share a simple tutorial for an easy project you can make, along with instructions for what to do with it.  
Perhaps it'll be something you can leave on the table for your waitress after you finish a meal.  Maybe it'll be something you can mail to someone as a surprise.  Maybe it will be something to leave for your hairdresser or give to your neighbor.  This month, you get to randomly leave it pretty much everywhere...you'll see!
We'd love for you to join us in this special project each month.  We're also going to create a linky so that if you happen to do the project and share about it on your own blog {if you have one}, you can come back and link up your post to show us how it went!  I can't wait to hear all the fun stories that come from using our talents to brighten someone else's day!
So are you ready for our first project?  Here we go!

I'm sure you've heard of photobombing (dropping in a photo unexpectedly.)  This month, I want to encourage you to go heartbombing!   Spread smiles by leaving fun window cling hearts in unexpected places.  It's really easy to make your own window clings!


Supplies:
Mod Podge
Paint
Glitter
Freezer or wax paper


To make your own heart clings:

Step one: Pour 1/3 cup Mod Podge into a bowl.


Step two: Add paint (about a teaspoon) and glitter to Mod Podge and mix well.

Step three: Use a brush to apply the mixture to the freezer paper. Paint it into a heart shape.

Step four: After it has dried, carefully peel the heart off the paper. It will cling to any glass surface.


Now you can go heart bombing! Leave your heart on cars, mirrors, windows, and any other place with a glass surface.

I can't wait to hear your heartbombing stories!

    1. Use anything non-porous and slick, like a plastic plate, glass, or mirror!

  14. so I did this... and it sooooorta worked

    And I had to do 5 coats and when I peeled it off it obviously took a little wax paper with it... freezer paper would have been better. Not really sure what went wrong
