Looking for a fun project to make with your children or grandchildren this winter? How about window clings!? Make your own snowflake window cling using these easy step by step directions. This is a great activity to beat winter boredom, when someone has the sniffles, or to just decorate your windows for winter!
Snowflake Window Cling Materials:
• Light Blue Paint
• Darker Blue Paint
** Note: if you don’t already own puffy paints, this 20 pack is a great price for a starter kit (and has all the colors needed for this project)
• Page Protector
• Snowflake Window Cling Template
• 8 1/2″ x 11″ Paper
Snowflake Window Cling Directions:
• Print out the snowflake cling template. Cut out the general shape.
• Insert a sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper into one of the page protector.
• Place your snowflake picture into the page protector, on top of the whole sheet of paper.
• You are painting on the page protector.
• Begin with the straight lines of the snowflake with the light blue paint.
• Paint all the straight lines before moving on to the smaller snowflake details.
• Make certain your lines of paint are thick; it will make it a lot easier to peel off the snowflake window cling later.
• If some of the areas are too small to paint around, just layer your puffy paint.
• Once the light blue straight lines are completed, switch to the dark blue puffy paint and, working top down, complete the details of the snowflake.
• Note: You can use any color combination you like to make the snowflakes. Blue shows well, so that is why it was chosen for this tutorial.
• When finished, set your painted template somewhere where it will not be disturbed.
• Allow to dry for 24 hours.
• Once your snowflake cling is dry, peel it off carefully.
• Your snowflake cling is now ready for you to hang on your window or mirrors.
Warning: do not keep snowflake on your windows for an extended period of time or during hot weather as they will be difficult to remove.
