Instructions

  1. 1

    Draw your own designs for your window clings using paper and a pencil, or download some templates from the Internet.

  2. 2

    Place one of your designs inside a sandwich bag facing up. Secure the bag to your work surface using tape so it won't move while you're making your window clings and mess the design up.

  3. 3

    Squeeze the leading paint on to the bag, going over the lines of your design. Leading paint is a special craft paint formulated to provide a thick outline for homemade window clings that can easily be peeled off and stuck once dry. The leading paint will create the outside shape of your design. Let the leading paint dry before you continue.

  4. 4

    Mix up your colours by adding two tablespoons of glue to the coloured acrylic craft paint to make a thick substance.

  5. 5

    Apply the glue and paint mixture to the design inside the lines of the leading paint. Make sure to apply it very thickly and cover the area completely inside the lines. Mix other colours if you like to create your design how you want it to look. The leading paint lines will provide the outside part of your design so there is no cutting involved. Once the paint is dry you'll have your window clings.

  6. 6

    Leave your window clings to dry overnight. Once they are dry, peel them away from the sandwich bag and stick them to your windows. They should easily peel off of the plastic.
