Make your own St. Patrick’s Day window decals with this Design Space file and tutorial!
Growing up, I always thought it was so fun to set up traps for leprechauns and catch anyone who wasn’t wearing green (and proceed to pinch them).
My mom would usually have a shamrock-printed tablecloth she’d put on the front entry way – along with these cute little leprechaun figurines.
It’s those simple memories from my childhood that I Love.
These days, St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays I often forget about until the day or so before.
But remembering how much I loved those simple things my mom would do remind me to do try and do simple traditions like that as well with my children.
The other day, I was trying to think of a project to do with Window Cling, and I thought, “Why not make some cute St. Patrick’s Day window decals?”
I went into Design Space, searched for St. Patrick’s Day, and within minutes, I came up with this super simple project.
They only took about 10 minutes to cut out with my Cricut, about five minutes to weed, and BAM. I had some cute decorations.
I was surprised at how thrilled my boys were when they saw that I had put them up.
I sometimes forget how easy it is to use make custom window decals using window cling and my Cricut, but I think this might be a new tradition.
I share this on Instagram and TikTok, and people seemed to love them, so I thought I’d share the DS file and tutorial here.
Here is a quick video showing the basics of this project.
