Make Your Own Window Clings!

by Susan Myers
These pretty window clings are so easy to make! All you need is puffy fabric paint and my free butterfly pattern. They cling easily to your shiny clean window without leaving any residue and add a bunch of bright color to an otherwise dreary day.

Want to know how to make them?
For this fun project, you need puffy paint, sheet protectors and a fun pattern to follow. You can find a link to my free butterfly pattern that was used for this project at the end of this post.
Begin by placing a clear sheet protector over top of the butterfly patterns.
Using the fabric paint, draw out your outlines.
Keep working while everything is still wet.  (Fabric paint takes a long time to dry, so you have plenty of time).  A thick layer works best.
Fill in your empty areas with more color.
Allow your butterflies to dry overnight.  (Don't try to rush them as it is much easier to get them off the plastic when totally dry).

Once they are totally dried, peel them off of the plastic.
This is a great rainy day project. These window clings add fun color to your window! For the free butterfly pattern to make your own, be sure to click on the website link below!
