If you visit a retail store around a holiday, chances are you’ll see a corresponding festive window cling. Whether it’s Christmas trees and presents for the holidays, a jack-o’-lantern for Halloween, or pastel eggs for Easter, there seems to be window clings for every occasion.

Making your own window clings is easy, fun, and inexpensive. Best of all, you can make them year-round to add a little personality to your windows.

With Feb. 14 right around the corner, we made Valentine’s Day-themed window clings.


  • 4 oz. bottle of white glue
  • Dish soap (two drops for every 2 Tbsp. glue)
  • Liquid food coloring
  • Small bowl (use more bowls for more colors)
  • Plastic spoon
  • Plastic page protectors
  • Cookie cutters (optional)
  • Paint brushes (optional)

Note to parents: Supplies could be toxic if ingested, so keep an eye on your keiki. 


Mix 2 tablespoons glue, two drops dish soap, and food coloring in a small bowl. You can make up to four different colors with one bottle of glue. To form shapes easily, pour colored glue back into the bottle. Draw your designs on plastic page protecters.

You can also use a paint brush or cookie cutters to make your designs.

Let window clings dry for 24-48 hours (depending on how thick they are).

Have fun decorating your windows!

Fun for children and animals!
