The kids love winter time. They would be happy if it snowed every day. Hot cocoa, snowmen and icecicles are some of our favorite things of winter. Since it doesn’t snow here often during winter, we decided to make some of our own snowflakes last winter.

The kids happily displayed their snowflakes in the windows for months. Actually two clings still remained in my daughter’s window well into summer.  Most of the clings we made though needed a little help to remain on the window once there was any type of condensation, so we made a few adjustments.

These snowflakes simply put…are amazing!  They stick almost too well, so you may need a little assistance to pry them off your window once you wish to redecorate but they stick great and look so cute!  If you are looking for a fun activity for an indoor afternoon, this will allow you bring to beauty of winter indoors to be enjoyed without bringing all the cold in.

You simply only need four items to make these puffy paint snowflake clings:

  1. Puffy Paint (I prefer Tulip’s Puffy Paint)***
  2. Elmer’s Glue***
  3. Template – print it here
  4. Wax Paper

How to Make Puffy Paint Snowflake Clings

Print off the template and place the wax paper over the snowflake template.

Using your puffy paint, trace the outline of snowflake and the circle on the outter edge.  Allow them to dry for at least 2-3 hours until it is no longer wet.

Using a thin layer of glue, fill in the gaps so that the entire circle has been filled.  Allow it to dry overnight or until the glue is completely dry.

Gently peel the cling off the plastic and have fun decorating!

Just a note: The ones we left up for months had to have a little help being peeled from the window.  The ones removed after a few weeks simply peeled away.

What are your favorite winter time crafts?
