Hot Glue & Fabric Paint Snowflakes plus Bonus Window Wax Stencil

Share it with others!

It snow here this weekend, and I’m not a huge fan of snow but I did get inspired.  I’m sharing 3 different ways to make snowflakes for your windows using hot glue or fabric paint.  The great thing about these is that you can leave them up for a season to enjoy.

For each of these snowflakes, print out some snowflake shapes that you like and cut them out.

Place your snowflake under a piece of wax paper.

Window Cling –

Use glittery fabric paint and squeeze out onto the wax paper tracing the snowflake underneath. Let it dry for 24 hours.

Carefully peel it off the wax paper and you have a window cling.

Glitter Hot Glue Snowflake –

You’ll want to coat the wax paper with either non-stick cooking spray, or lightly rub a little dish soap into the wax paper so the glue won’t stick to the paper. I preferred the dish soap.

I bought glitter glue sticks from Dollar Tree. I squeezed it out onto the wax paper tracing the snowflake design. Let cool completely, peel off, and wash the cooking spray or dish soap off the snowflake.

Tie on a piece of fishing line and your snowflake is ready to be hung.

Regular Hot Glue Snowflake – spruced up

Again – coat your wax paper as instructed above. Squeeze your hot glue onto the wax paper tracing the design of the snowflake. Let it cool completely.

Paint on some Mod Podge onto the hot glue snowflake.

Sprinkle with glitter or I used fake snow on mine. Let it dry completely.

Tie on some fishing line and your snowflake is ready to be hung up.

Bonus – stenciling on your windows with Window Wax

You’ll need a stencil, painters tape, Window Wax, and a paint brush.

Use the painters tape to hold your stencil onto your window. Brush the Window Wax onto your stencil, and when you’re done carefully remove the stencil.

The best part about this is that it’s meant to clean your window! So when you’re ready to take it down, paint on more Window Wax, and then just wipe it off.
