I've really been into puffy paint lately and with Halloween coming up, I thought it was a great time to start making Halloween Window Clings! I recently made some puffy paint doilies that I plan to share soon but I use the same technique to make these Halloween window clings. I love a fast craft like these window clings – you can make them in under 10 minutes! Today, I'm featured on Craft Lightning, hosted by Jen Goode this month. Scroll to the end to click the button to see more Halloween crafts that you can make in under 15 minutes.
These go together really fast. You can buy a coloring book or print printable coloring book images from online, like I did. Be sure to set your printer to print them to 5×7 or you will be using a TON of puffy paint to fill these images in. Here's what you'll need to make these:
- Gallon Zip Top Bag
- Puffy Paint or Dimensional Paint
- Printable Halloween Coloring Book Pages
I made a handy video sharing how to make these. Watch it here:
I decided to try out a couple different dimensional paints I had in my stash in addition to puffy paint for these window clings. You might have some of these dimensional paints sitting in your stash, like I did, drying out so this is a good project to use them. Puffy paint is really easy to find at any craft store as well as on the craft aisle in Walmart so if you don't have dimensional paint, no worries there. Here are the three types of dimensional paints I tried on this project:
- Pentart Pearl Pen (received free)
- Tulip Crystals Dimensional Fabric Paint
- Tulip Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint
- Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal
The Pentart pens were easy to apply but they did curl as they dried and had some cracks in them after drying overnight. The Tulip products both worked well – the Crystals had a large opening so they squirted out a little thicker and faster than I expected. The Art Anthology pen was disappointing because it kept clogging. This product is at least 2 years old so maybe that is why it was clogged. I was unable to finish the pumpkin I started because it blogged so badly. I recommend the Tulip paints definitely as they dried flat, fast, and had a shimmer when they were dry. Here's the dimensional paints or puffy paints I recommend:
I also created 3 printable “BOO!”s – feel free to right click these, save them to your computer and print them out to make your own DIY window clings:
I hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks so much for stopping by today.
