If you ask which holiday is the most expected andfavorite, and adults, and children almost in chorus will say: "this is the New Year"! This is a wonderful winter period, when the windows are cold and snow, and the house is warm and cozy. Festive commotion captures everyone around. The most delicious dishes are prepared, the Christmas tree is decorated, the most unusual and amazing things used for home decor. This tradition is in fact already many centuries. Even in the pre-Christian era, the ancient Celtic tribes brought to their home branches of evergreen trees, as an act of sensual magic designed to drive away evil spirits. They decorated spruce branches with various sweets to propitiate the deities of nature and get prosperity and prosperity in the new year. Among the peoples of the East, for example, in China, such ornaments were "wind music". It was believed that her chime would scare away all evil ghost creatures and demons and not let them into the house. In Russia, the tradition of decorating firs appeared along with many other innovations, thanks to the decree of Emperor Peter I. It was then that the first decorated fir-trees and the interior of the houses appeared. The popularity of this tradition then increased, then calmed down, but even in Soviet times snowflakes cut from paper were on the windows of houses on New Year's Eve. In the modern world, there are more ways to decorate window panes. New materials appeared, and old methods were refined. Of course, I want to make windows in the house frosty in the New Year's holidays, but what if the moody nature was abnormally warm for this time of the year? In this article, we will suggest several methods and ways to create beautiful patterns on the window glass with your own hands. Drawing New Year's patterns with toothpaste This is one of the simplest and affordable options. Toothpaste is in every house, and the cost is not high enough to use the tube as a colorant without the slightest hesitation. In addition, do not forget that now they produce toothpaste not only white, but also green, blue and even multi-colored (for example, striped). Another few indisputable arguments in favor of the choice of toothpaste is that the patterns dry very quickly, the paste is completely harmless and will not spoil the window glass and is easily removed using a conventional wet wipe. Even if you draw, draw an incorrect line or incorrectly fill an area, you can easily wipe it and draw it correctly. So, before you start drawing,you must select a topic. What exactly do you want to portray on your window? Once you have decided what it will turn out to be: snowflakes, snowmen, a Christmas tree or a snow-covered house, you have two ways of creating a pattern. The first - drawing with the help of brushes and special sponge. This option is good if you can draw. In a small container, squeeze out a toothpaste from the tube. The selected section of the window wipe dry with a cloth. Now you can start drawing. Brushes are suitable for the application of clear lines and contours, and it is very convenient to create backgrounds of varying degrees of saturation and to conduct shading with sponge. The second way will suit those people who do not know how to draw. If you do not have an artistic talent, but want to draw beautiful New Year patterns on the window, use a template or a stencil. The simplest and best option is a lot of ready-made drawings on the Internet. It can be a scattering of stars, which you just need to cut. Now just attach this sheet of paper to the window and apply a layer of paste. As in any case. There is a small nuance here - depending on which part of the stencil you attach to the window, you will get two completely different pictures - both positive and negative in photos of the past. Drawings in the New Year's theme on the windows with the help of soap The application process will be approximately the same asprevious, and the way the dye is prepared is easy and simple. The hue of the picture will depend on the color of the soap you choose. Of course, images of white soap will look really snowy and festive, but if you decide to draw a snowman with a hat, with a scarf and a carrot-carrot, for example, using a colored soap solution is an excellent solution. So. On a small grater, three halves of a piece of soap. Add half a glass of warm water. The temperature of the liquid is important, since soap chips will last longer in cold water. Mix the resulting mixture with a blender. Must get a stable thick and dense foam. You can correct its consistency by changing the proportions of the ingredients. It only remains to take a piece of sponge, even an ordinary kitchen dish for washing dishes will do, and start painting. Like toothpaste, soap foam does not harm glasses and is easily wiped off. New Year's drawings on the windows with paints Draw on the windows, we will either acrylic, or gouache, or finger paints. The latter deserve special attention. Such material as finger paints isa wonderful developing material for kids. Even quite crumbs can be safely entrusted to them, since they have several indubitable pluses for both kids and their mothers. First, they are not tasty and safe for the health of the child. Even if your young artist tries, nothing terrible will happen. Well, the second and very important aspect - finger paints are easily washed and washed from almost any surface. So if you want to please the baby, suggest painting New Year patterns on the window with just such material. And finger paints, and gouache have another plus - bright colors. Acrylic colors are suitable only for adult artists. They have rich colors and more durability. So, when the pattern option is selected, moveit on the window pane. Black or white color draw contours. When they dry, decorate in different colors to your liking and as fantasy tells. In order for the fir-tree or snowflake edges to look fuzzy, you can use a knitting needle or a skewer for skewers. They are very easy to shade contours, until the paint has not yet dried. Advice! Refuse specially stained-glass paint. After drawing, the picture on the glass will be fixed forever, and the New Year mood will remain with you on a warm summer day. Drawings on the window using artificial snow With the advent of this magnificent assistant,drawing on the windows in the New Year theme was amazingly simple and easy. The main thing is to choose high-quality material, so give up cheap, with a sharp chemical smell of the goods, in favor of German or Hungarian products. The next moment is the texture of artificial snow. For drawing on windows it is necessary to use finely dispersed structure.

Another excellent option for festive decoration will be artificial snow is not the usual white, but silvery, golden and even bronze shades. If the material is even with the effect of luminescence. If you just want to write a good wish on the window or draw a pattern, you should practice separately to determine the distance and force of pressing to choose the optimal snow cover intensity. Very often, together with a can of such snow, they already sell ready-made templates for drawing. You can make your own stencil. It is enough to cut out any pattern you like from paper, moisten the sheet with water so that it sticks to the glass for a while, and apply artificial snow over its entire surface. Another version of drawing with it will be the following: a piece of glass covered with artificial snow, and then wipe a small piece.
