We’ve made window clings for the past few holidays so I really couldn’t say no when my kids begged to make some for our windows. Crafting for Christmas is a must do each year in our family. We have evolved in our window cling process from the first Jack O’Lantern on wax paper to the Turkey on saran wrap.
This time I decided to re-use some old gallon sized freezer bags and an old Christmas coloring book.
Oddly, since my kids are so art inclined, coloring books have never been popular around here unless they come with hundreds of stickers. In that case, the stickers would be plundered and the coloring book left with a few lazy scribbles. My children prefer to draw and color their own designs. Does this mean that they will forever be going outside of the lines? Hmmm…
Materials used for our DIY Window Clings:
- puffy paints
- two large ziplock bags
Pork Chop and Pea flipped through the coloring book and each chose a picture.
I ripped out the page and placed it into the ziplock bag.
This worked perfectly! The kids were able to paint without the picture needing to be taped down.
Pork Chop chose a reindeer.
Pea chose a Christmas candle.
Pea was so excited when she put her DIY window cling on the window! As usual, they had a great time making their window decorations. These DIY Chrismtas clings are their favorite craft.
