Who would have thought that making window clings with your Cricut would be so easy! I made a super cute doormat and wanted to make some Halloween window decor to match.
So I, of course, pulled out my computer and went straight to Design Space. And I think that you are going to love what I did while I was there!
Halloween Window Decor With Cricut Window Cling
What Are Window Clings?
Well, they are just what they sound like. They are a special material that clings to the window, using static electricity and they are so cute!
They are kind of a removable window sticker of sorts. You don’t need any adhesive, just stick it directly to the glass window.
They are really easy to apply and now with the magic of the Cricut cutting machine, you can make your own static window clings.
How do you make window clings?
You can make these removable window decals using your Cricut explore air or the other Explore machines. or the Cricut Maker.
You will need:
- Cricut machine
- Cricut Window cling
- cutting mats
Cricut window cling comes in a couple of colors. So you can mix things up with your Halloween window decor. Your custom window clings are meant to stick to smooth surfaces like glass.
You can make any Halloween window decor you like, I chose ghosts, but with the many colors that are offered, you can make witched and haunted houses even pumpkins and Jack O Lanterns!
How do you store window clings?
I saved the cling backing, so when the season is over, I will stick them back onto that paper and store them in a bin. If you want more Cricut Halloween Crafts then you must check out 15 Halloween Crafts For Cricut and Fall Doormat with Free SVG
It works great on any glass surface, and it is less permanent than vinyl or paint, making it a neat option for swapping out holiday decorations. Cricut Window Cling is probably one of the less utilized Cricut materials. For this reason, it can often make crafters nervous the first time that they create with it.
You will soon see that Window Cling does not transfer to your project in the same way standard vinyl does. Therefor, if you’ve created a directional design (especially one that includes text), you MUST select ‘Mirror’ in the cut settings (just as you would for heat-transfer vinyl).
