Hot Glue Snowflake Window Clings Diy

These really look like snowflakes (well, giant, oversized ones) because of the color of hot glue.  They are very easy to make and just take a few supplies.  Let’s get started!

You will need:


Hot glue gun (with hot glue)

Parchment paper

Sharpie (optional)

snowflake pattern to trace (optional)

There are several different ways to do this.  You can either

1. Draw a snowflake directly onto the parchment paper (the sharpie lines will show up on the finished snowflake)

2. Print out a simple snowflake drawing from your computer and place it under the parchment paper

3. Just use hot glue to make a snowflake freehand.

What ever way you do it, the basic idea is to make a snowflake by squirting out hot glue onto parchment paper and letting it dry.

Since it is hot glue, it won’t take long to dry (YAY!).  If you want, you can sprinkle some glitter over the snowflake before it dries.  When you’re sure the hot glue is dry enough, carefully peel it off the parchment paper.  You may need to remove those annoying hot glue strings too.

To activate the cling, turn it upside down in the palm of your hand and run it under water.  Gently shake the water off, but don’t dry it off.  Press the snowflake to a window.

The water helps it stick to begin with, but even when the water dries, the snowflake stays on.  You can also make little swirls, dots, and other snowy doodles to go along with your snowflakes.

Make a whole blizzard!
