Fun "Stickers" That Kids Can Make

How to make stickers


Anyone can make homemade stickers; all you need is a little patience and creativity.

These stickers are easy to make and will adhere to and pull safely off any surface. They are great for people of all ages!



What you'll need:

Little squirt bottles of fabric paint (like Tulip brand or something similar that you can find in the craft section of any Wal-Mart) and a mirror or the lid to a plastic container to work on.



Four easy steps:

1) Take the paint and make a design or drawing, like a name or flower, heart, or star, on the mirror directly. (Here is where you can paint on the plastic lid instead, if you don't want to work on the mirror.)


2) Let the paint dry for 24 hours or until it isn't soft to touch or press down. The more paint you use, the longer it will have to dry.


3) After it is dry, peel back the paint and the design will come cleanly off the glass or plastic surface. Make sure to take your time so as not to rip the design in pieces. The paint will feel just like thin rubber and is very easy to tear.


4) Rub a little bit of water on the back of the sticker so it will be able to adhere to another surface. Place it anywhere on the mirror or any other surface.


The rubber-like designs are reusable as long as you make sure and pull them off carefully. These are clean and easy to use on any surface; you never have to worry about these stickers leaving permanent marks or residue. Just make sure not to rip the paint each time you remove and relocate it. It's a great idea for kids' birthday presents or just an activity for them to do to pass the time. Kids of all ages, even college students, may like to use these to decorate their rooms. Make sure to get bright colors to spruce up any room!! They look like puffy stickers, but are not nearly as expensive.

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”
