How to Make a Snowflake Window Cling

 

This is a project that my 14 year old daughter saw on Pinterest using hot glue.  She decided that she’d try it with fabric paint to see if that would work.  It worked amazingly well…and we could make different colors this way.

Directions:

Once it’s dry enough, put it in a window.  After it sits for a while, it will get harder, so make sure that you place it where you want, as the harder that it gets, the harder it will be to move.

Here are a couple in our window….
