Cling Film Window Decorations

Cling Film Window Decorations

For Christmas and other occasions, dress your windows up by adding your own designs!

What you need

White wood glue (PVA)
Plastic cling wrap
Poster paints


Simply cut a piece of clear plastic to accommodate the size of your intended decoration.

Draw your own design, or trace your design on a piece of paper and tape it to a table or a flat surface.

Center the plastic over the design and fasten it down as well.

Using a PVA (poly vinyl acetate) based craft glue (available in most colors and some are developed for these sort of projects) draw the outlines in black and fill the others in with other colors.

It is advisable to let the outline dry before proceeding to fill the design in.

Once dry, to remove the design, place in the freezer for 10 seconds and carefully peel the design off.

Make sure the window is clean. These designs stick well to any glass preferably plain, but does hold well to patterned too.

    Mix food colouring with the glue to make the colours you want, it’s easier than paint. Instead of clingwrap, use a plastic sleeve (clingwrap wrinkles and moves far more easily), and you can slide a piece of paper inside the sleeve with the design to be traced.
    Buy bottles of PVA glue that have squeezy lids- it’s far more precise for making designs, and you can put the colouring straight into the bottle and make a few bottles with different colours.

    do you mix the glue and paint to get the colors if you don’t have colored glue???

  3. Please help. Supplies call for WHITE PVA, but instructions mention it comes in colors, and also imply that PVA is what is used to outline in black and also fill inner spaces with color. If so, what is the poster paint for? Clearer directions, please!

  4. are you sure it comes off?

  5. i like that saves money to i love tips ty ty

  6. I have done this, we just drew the outline for the kids and let them dry.. then had the kids fill it in very easy.. loads of fun

  7. Has anyone actually done this with kindergarten or pre-school age children? I seems to me that most of the steps would need to be done by someone much older.
