DIY Snowflake Window Clings

In this video tutorial, make your own window clings using puffy paint/fabric paint!

 

I found that they can be a bit tricky to peel off the wax paper and may not stay on your window long term – so keep this in mind. If you’ve found a solution to these issues, please comment below and share your tips 🙂 That said, these are super easy to make and are a fun addition to your windows!

If you have any questions, feel free to comment below 🙂
