This is the point of why I'm doing this. It's for me. The 'pin' is my push through the end of the day. It's something I'm excited about and the thought of accomplishing it energizes me until my glass of wine at the end of the day. Today I was only going to focus on my dinner 'pin' but as my 3.5 year old stands inches from my face refusing a nap, I will be incorporating another 'pin' into my day- Crayon Stained Glass. How can I refuse?
1. I've started saving our old crayon rejects- you know the broken ones that have either no paper or have all the other crayon colors smashed to it? They work perfectly for these types of crafts.
2. I had my 3.5 year old pick out the colors while I shaved them. The easiest thing for me was to use a pencil sharpener.
4. After she was done, I made sure there weren't too many big pieces on top of each other. I folded a towel over the top and bottom then ironed. The iron was set to medium no steam.
5. After everything looked melted (I checked a couple of times due to slight paranoia I was burning the paper) I laid the paper out to set. It usually takes about 3 minutes to harden.
7. I've seen people double stick tape these to windows or doors. I decided to string them all on fishing line.
