Instructions…

  • Once you know what you want to make, just use the puffy paint colors to draw your image by squeezing out the puffy paint onto the parchment paper
  • Don’t be stingy with the amount of puffy paint you use per image. Make the puffy paint a little thick (puffy). This will ensure that it doesn’t rip when you pull it off of the parchment paper. A thin layer may tear

  • *The Jack-O-Lantern I’m peeling away from the parchment paper was one that I made by filling in the orange around the black face expressions. That way you can see the design from both sides of the window. I also did that with my haunted house so the yellow windows would show on both sides
  • Let your images dry overnight, and peel off your puffy paint design

  • Stick them to your mirrors, and/or windows
  • *the shiny side will stick better to your window. If you want to place the flat side against the window, I’ve had success by adding a drop of water to the edges of the flat side

Tips and Tricks for making Window Clings with the kids…

  • If you are using a printable just place it under the parchment paper and trace it with your puffy paint
  • If your cling won’t stick try turning it around so the shiny side is facing the window
  • Another tip is to add a dab of water to the cling so it will adhere to the window a little better
