April Showers Bring…Cute Window Decor

I know we love to get outside more than ever before so when we wake up to rain, look at the bright side: April showers bring crafting to a whole new level. Grab a few supplies you already have and pretty up your windows with these really cute repurposed milk jug decals. Your windows will be the envy of the block.

What You’ll Need:

  • Hiland Dairy milk jugs
  • Acrylic paints, various colors
  • Paintbrushes
  • Permanent marker
  • Scissors
  • Crafting knife
  • Clear or white thread
  • Suction cups
  • Clear glue

Instructions:

  • Wash the milk jugs with warm soapy water and let dry completely.
  • Cut down the sides of the milk jugs to create “sheets.”
  • Draw raindrops, umbrellas, and flowers on the milk jug sheets.
  • Cut out each decal with scissors and using the crafting knife for the hard-to-reach corners and crevices.
  • Paint each decal vivid fun colors. Let the paint dry completely.
  • Turn over each decal and add a drop of clear glue to the back.
  • Cut a long piece of clear thread and place one end directly onto the wet glue.
  • Let the glue dry completely.
    • Tip – I glued two to four raindrops to one piece of thread to make it look like falling rain.
  • Tie each thread to suction cups and hang the decals in your window.
