DIY Custom Window Cling

Free Christmas Window Cling Tutorial

Make your own custom window clings with this simple tutorial – free Christmas-themed template included here! This technique can be used for any type of window cling. I made this using my Cricut Maker, but you can use the same material to cut out your own if you don’t have a machine!

One of my favorite materials to use with my Cricut Maker is the window cling!

It makes it so easy to make cute and custom Christmas decor for our windows – especially snowflakes.

For our family Christmas bucket list today, I had put that we were going to make snowflakes for the window.

Well, somewhere between elementary school and now, I’ve forgotten how to cut out snowflakes – and even after I looked up a tutorial online, I just butchered it…so my smart five year old exclaimed, “Mommy, why don’t we just use the Cricut?”

He knows what he’s talking about…and that mommy isn’t always the best at doing crafts without my Cricut. haha!

We had a lot of fun selecting what shapes we wanted to cut out for the window. I wish that I’d had red and green window cling, but I think the white turned out pretty.

This project was super easy to do in Design Space. And if you don’t have a Cricut – no worries! You can still use the window cling to cut out your own shapes! The Cricut just makes it a little easier 😉
