Snowy Windows and Mirrors (and more)

Share it with others!

Do you remember when a lot of stores and homes sprayed their windows with fake snow?  I do, and boy have the projects changed for the better!  I’m going to teach you how to make snowy windows and mirrors (and more), plus an added blast from the past.

For this first way you’ll need:

A stencil – mine is from Cutting Edge Stencils
Spray Snow – mine came from Walmart
Painters Tape
Let’s start with the mirror first. You can use any mirror – your bathroom, a decorative mirror in your home, or you can buy one from the store so you can move it around. This one came from Dollar Tree.
Use the painters tape to hold the stencil in place.
Spray on the snow.
Carefully remove the stencil and you’re done.
Now on to the windows.
Tape the stencil into place with the painters tape.
Spray your window with the snow.
Carefully remove the stencil.
When you’re ready to remove the it, wipe off the dried snow the best you can, and then use Windex or your favorite window cleaner to finish the job.  Easy and your kids or grand kids can help you do it too.
Okay, next the blast from the past!  You might remember back in the early days a product called Window Wax. It was used to clean windows but it was also during the holidays to decorate them. Great for adults, and super fun for kids too!
You will need:
Window Wax (can be bought at Amazon and other online locations)
Stencil – mine is from Cutting Edge Stencils
Paint brush
Painters tape.
Pour your window wax into a cup – it’ll be pink but after it dries will turn white.
Tape your stencil to the window with the painters tape.
Carefully remove the stencil, and let the Window Wax dry.  It’s really easy to remove after the holidays… it is a window cleaner, and just wipes right off.  I give my kids paint brushes every year and they go to town on my windows with this stuff. They have a ton of fun and I get my windows clean. They have painted free handed and they have used the stencils as well. Fun any time of year.
Okay one more for fun…Dry erase markers aren’t just for white boards. They can be used on windows and mirrors too. Use them to write reminders for your family on the bathroom mirror, or front door. Use them to decorate during the holidays! Let your kids and grand kids have a whole window to have fun on!
Tape the stencil to the window using painters tape to hold in place.
Color in the stencil with the dry erase marker, and carefully remove the stencil.
What’s great about the dry erase markers is that they just wipe off.
Here is the stencil on a mirror.
That’s it, and it just wipes right off when your done. Stencil or no stencil my kids have a blast when I give them the dry erase markers and an entire window to draw and color on.
Leave reminders or messages for your family on windows or mirrors.

    Enjoy your day! Hugs!

    1. Thank you Stephanie – Happy Holidays and sending big hugs back 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing! I love fake snow. I buy some every year to spray around the windows in my corner cabinet and hutch. So much fun!

    1. Thanks Cherryl and it has come a long way since the 50s & 60s when you had to chisel it off. Now it wipes up so easy!

  3. Wow! You got a lot from just one stencil and they are fabulous! Right now there is no room on my windows, but after the tree comes down, I think I’ll get my grandkids decorate my window just for fun in January. Then the next time the come, they can wipe it down and I’ll get my windows cleaned. 🙂 Thanks for the blast from the past! I so remember doing this every year on a huge picture window. Now I know why my Mom had us wipe it away. LOL 🙂

    1. Thanks Linda, it’s fun to see what the kids create and boy will they love it when you tell them they can color the windows!!! 🙂

  4. These are great ideas – I had forgotten about that snow, and never heard of window wax. I created a cutout from contact paper for my storm door for this season, but this has given me a lot of great ideas for the next holidays.

    1. Thank you Susan and once you get started – it’s so much fun. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Cathy – I love this stencil too, such good quality. 🙂

  5. I have been looking for window was for years! We used to decorate the windows in our home every year using window wax, a brush or sponge and our imaginations. My mother would color the window wax with a bit of food coloring and since it just wiped right off the glass when it was dried we could make our designs in color. I LOVED doing that each year and wanted to pass this tradition on to my boys.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your story! I love that and love that you want to pass a tradition you remember on to your boys. 🙂

  6. Doing snow art everywhere was a favorite past time in the 1970’s but I had never heard of the art wax. This product would be amazing to play with. I use to paint windows on very cold days using children’s water paints these waxes would work without it being so cold. Lovely craft project, pinning and thank you very much.

    1. Thank you Leanna and I would love to see your art on the windows – I bet it’s amazing! Thank you for the Pin 🙂

  7. I remember the snow sprayed widows from my childhood. I love your stencil and how you used it on the mirror. I’m going to Pin your post. Thanks for sharing on Sunday’s Best. Have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.

    1. Thank you Rhonda, and thank you for the Pin 🙂 I’m so glad you have memories of the spray snow as I do, and the snow has gotten so much better and is so easy to remove now.

  8. So many fun ideas for the same stencil. Brilliant.

    1. Thank you very much and thanks for stopping by

    Love this! Glass Wax….from a LONG time ago and I remember it coming in a can you could pour from. Happy New Year! <3

    1. Thank you April, it brings back so many memories 🙂 Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you so much Angie, and thank you for hosting a wonderful place for all of us to share our ideas.

  10. I always loved the snow windows! Yours turned out so well. Thank you for sharing.

    1. They bring back such wonderful memories, and I’m so thrilled that it cleans up so much better than the old stuff.

  11. Hi, i love your upbeat persona. My question: where do I buy stencils from? They are all rather expensive. I imagine that I won’t be using the same slogan or quote too many times, so a stencil purchase is expensive. I’m not artistic enough to create my own designs.
    And this question is my big pop question that no one seems to be empathetic enough to “get” me. My passion to dabble with refurbishing furniture and paint is growing stronger. I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE to choose paint colors. HOW do I get around this hurdle? You had painted wooden leaves so beautifully, I’d have no idea where to start. I am a super creative preschool teacher. I can reinvent fun with just about anything. But this is a new chapter for me. I suppose I can just keep bringing home all the many curbside junk is that I actually leave at the side after taking everything else, and with no worry that I’ll ruin it, I can just go “crazy”!
    I love that your projects are really easy for the interested layman that I am.

    1. Thank you for your kind words, and I will send you an email with some thoughts and hopefully helpful answers.
