DIY Snowflake Window Clings

Try these cute homemade snowflake window decorations to add a personal touch to your winter holiday scene! 

My kids always love buying window clings for every holiday that rolls around. So, when we had our winter wonderland party, we decided to go out on a limb and try creating our own. Honestly, once I got the mixture correct it wasn’t really that hard. This is definitely a craft for older kids since it can get messy and requires some patience. We had all the supplies on hand, which made this craft even easier. We made snowflakes, a snowman and the word SNOW to display on our glass door during our winter wonderland themed party.

  • 3 tablespoons Elmer’s glue
  • ¼ teaspoon dish soap
  • ½ teaspoon white paint (not pictured)
  • A few drops of gel food coloring (optional)
  • Plastic page protectors (not pictured)
  • Paintbrush and bowl
  • Popsicle stick (optional)

Step 1:In a small cup or bowl mix together the three tablespoons of Elmer’s school glue, ¼ teaspoon of dish soap and ½ teaspoon of white paint. If you want colors you can add some gel food coloring to the mixture and mix well. I added a few drops of blue to some of my glue mixture to create a soft blue color.

Step 2:On your page protectors use your popsicle stick or paintbrush to draw lines and create snowflake designs. I found that I was able to control my lines better with the popsicle stick and create smaller snowflakes as well. You want your window clings to be about the same thickness and consistent. I created several different but simple designs by free hand but you could also print off snowflake outlines to trace over. I sprinkled each design with silver glitter after I drew it.

Step 3:I also decided to spell out snow alternating colors for the letters, and to create a snowman. You can get creative with your designs but for this set I stuck to my snowy theme.

Step 4:Let your window clings dry overnight and then gently peel them off. They are pretty thick feeling and sturdy and easy to stick to the window.

Step 5:Decorate your windows and enjoy your new snowy scene!
