Steps

Step 1 Snowflake Window Clings craft 1. Print out any of these snowflake templates on A4 or Letter size paper. We think that the snowflakes in Sets 2 and 3 are the perfect size for making window clings.

These templates are not a must —you can always do without a pattern and create your own unique snowflakes.
Step 2 Snowflake Window Clings craft 2. Place the snowflake printout on a flat surface and tape it in place. Lay a sheet of wax paper over the printout and tape its edges onto the table or surface. Make sure that the wax paper is stretched taut when taping the edges.

If you're not using templates, you can either draw the snowflakes directly on the wax paper or go entirely without any templates or drawings.
Step 3a Snowflake Window Clings craft 3. Apply white glue inside the outline of the snowflake. Try to make the white glue lines as thick as possible.
Step 3b Snowflake Window Clings craft When not using any guides (template or drawing), make sure that the white glue lines are broad and thick. Lines that are too delicate may easily break when peeled off from the wax paper in the succeeding steps.
Step 4 Snowflake Window Clings craft 4. Fill the entire snowflake outline with white glue lines. Once done, allow the snowflake to dry completely.
Step 5 Snowflake Window Clings craft 5. Create more white glue snowflakes following the steps above. The glue will take 1-2 days to dry completely. You'll know it's done when the glue hardens and turns completely transparent.
Step 6 Snowflake Window Clings craft Ask for an adult's help.6. Once dry, carefully peel off each snowflake from the wax paper.
Step 7 Snowflake Window Clings craft 7. To allow the snowflakes to cling, wet the bottom or flat side of each snowflake using a damp paint brush.
Step 9 Snowflake Window Clings craft 8. Carefully stick the wet side of the snowflake onto the window's glass surface. Press on all sections of the snowflake to make it cling to the glass.

Stick the rest of your snowflakes onto the glass. The snowflakes will look a bit cloudy because of the moisture. Once dry, they will turn completely transparent.

Instead of wetting the back of the snowflake (Step 7), use double-sided tape to stick the snowflake onto glass.
