3. Create a Kid Sized Snowman Window Cling

Supplies For Snowman Window Cling:

  • clear contact paper
  • black permanent marker
  • acrylic paint and brushes
  • scissors

How To Make a Snowman Window Cling:

Step One:  Lay out a 4-5 foot strip of clear contact paper.  We taped ours down to the hardwood floors so we could easily work with it.

Step Two:  Use black permanent marker to draw the outlines of the pieces such as hat, scarf, eyes, nose, mouth, buttons, and the 3 parts of the snowman himself.  (Note that we forgot a mouth)

Step Three:  Use acrylic paint to paint all the pieces.  (Even with using acrylic paint the paint is susceptible to being scratched off so you need to be careful with the pieces even after they are dry.)

Painting the Snowman

Step Four:  Cut out all the pieces and hang them on your window or door.
