DIY Halloween Window Cling Projects

Window clings are really fun seasonal decorations, because they’re temporary, they’re kid-safe, and they can be enjoyed even by folks outside your house! Here’s how to make your own.

You’ll need:

Cricut Maker 3 or other electronic cutting machine

Cricut³ Window Cling Material: orange and/or black

Cricut Frosted Window Cling Material: white

Cutting Mat

To create your window clings, all you need to do is open the Cricut Design Space app and choose your favorite images. Add them to your canvas, then click, “Make it” and follow the prompts in the app to load your machine and begin the cut.

Just place the window cling material on a cutting mat the same way you would with vinyl or any other material, and let the machine work its magic!

Once the clings are cut, they’re ready to use! Of course, you can apply them to any window in your home, but that’s not all! They will also stick to a mirror as well as other types of glass. Here are two quick ideas for creating festive decor with these window clings.

Cut bats from black and ghosts from the frosted white cling material (or cut anything else you like!) Press them onto the outside of a mason jar. Fill the bottom of the jar with Poly Pellets and some gauze, then add a battery operated candle. These are great as indoor or outdoor decor, and would look great lining the walkway on Halloween night!

Remove the backing from a photo frame, or purchase a “floating” frame and apply your window clings directly to the glass. This looks great on a mantel or shelf, or even on the wall. Try different images as well as different sizes, shapes, and colors of frames for a totally unique project!

These clings easily peel right off the glass surface without leaving any residue, and are reusable over and over again. Have fun creating and decorating! I’d love to see how you use your own window cling projects to be festive for Fall. Make sure you’re part of the Amy Latta & Friends Facebook Group so you can share your project photos and we can all be inspired. See you there!
