|Yes, it really is finished|
I slept REALLY well last night, waking up only once when I rolled over and whacked my knee on the door. What changed, you might ask? I spent yesterday making bug screens for my car windows.
The whole time I was making these I was thinking that someone with a bit more creative genius (and a sewing machine) could really make them look great. Adapt as necessary.
- Roll of screening (about $5 at Home Depot
- 20 pack of small circular magnets ($5 at Walmart)
- Glue (I got Elmer’s can-stick-a-rock-to-the-wall glue)
- Cut a piece of screen to just larger than the window.
- Glue magnets round the edges two to three inches apart
- Let it dry… and you’re done!
Tips and Thoughts:
- Make sure the glue is totally dry before you stick this on your car or you’ll have permanent screening and/or paint loss.
- I was going to use magnetic strips but decided that the screen would be harder to fold up and store.
Easy, right? The whole thing cost about $12 and twenty minutes, much better than the $35 screens I was looking at (plus shipping). Yes, when people ask I may tell them my six year old nephew made these, but they are functional and can be removed and stored easily. I have a ton of extra screen, so I’ll probably try to make something prettier when I have some free time. Enjoy my childlike (but totally practical!) art project.
