Snowflake Window Clings

During Jackson’s nap on Monday, Katie walked up to me and said, “I want to make a craft.” Bingo! Music to my ears.

We decided to make snowflake window clings, like these from FamilyFun. They are seriously easy to make. Just get some fabric paint and waxed paper. You can freehand the flakes or draw designs on paper and use them as templates under the waxed paper.IMGP7367

Wait a day for the paint to dry, then peel them off the waxed paper (the hardest part of this craft). Then stick them to a slick surface, like a window or mirror. And you’re done!IMGP7390

One tip to pass along: it seems the thicker the paint, the better the results. I thought Katie’s clumpy snowflakes wouldn’t work well, but they were easiest to peel from the waxed paper – especially without ripping. And the glittery paint worked better than any of the slicker puffy paints.
