I love creating things with shrinkable plastic. My daughter loves watching the shape shrink and the colors become brighter. This is just a little project to show another way to use this material. It helps everyone get in the mood for April next month with those April showers.
- Shrinkable plastic in Matte or Frost
- Colored Pencils
- Fine tip permanent marker
- Bead Filament or Fishing line
Start off by drawing a large cloud, making it take up the whole 8.5 x 11 sheet. Use scissors to cut the shape out. Next draw water droplets and cut them out.
On the frosted side of the plastic, color the shapes with the colored pencils.
Use the permanent marker to outline the shapes and add a cute face to the cloud.
Shrink the plastic according to the instructions on the package.
Once the plastic has cooled, use glue to attached bead filament or fishing line to the bottom edge of the cloud. Next, glue the rain drops on to the filament in a staggered manner. Make a loop of line and glue it to the top of the cloud for a hanger.
Now it’s ready to hang for spring, remember “April Showers bring May Flowers!”
