Hi Friends! I’m busy turning our home into a winter wonderland theme for Christmas and have gone crazy with snow! I moved on from flocking my trees and garland (click here to check out my flocking tutorial!) to Christmas window decorations using window snow spray. It’s so easy and fun to create the look of snow outside especially if you live in a place where it never snows, like us! I saw this idea somewhere on Pinterest and knew I needed to try it! It’s nice to cover up a bit of our green trees and pool by using a DIY stencil and some Santa snow spray. My kids love it and my youngest kept asking to do more windows and doors!
All you need to create a snow window is a few supplies!
Supplies for snow Christmas window decorations:
- Santa Snow Spray
- Grafix plastic for stencil – find here
- Cricut or other cutting machine – if you want to learn more about a Cricut, click here to read my post on why I love mine so much!
First you will need to cut a snowflake out of the Grafix plastic. You can download a snowflake and upload it to Cricut Design Space or use one of their snowflakes. You need one that doesn’t have a bunch of holes in the center piece. The simpler the better! These are the ones I used.
Now the setting is a bit tricky. I tried a bunch before I got one that worked. I set the dial to custom and set it to Light Chipboard and default pressure. It will go over the cut 2 to 3 times so don’t take it out after first cut!
Then you’re just going to hold it up to the window and spray with Santa Snow Spray over the cut out part.
It’s best to take it off by holding two corners. Put the can down and hold two opposite sides and pull it straight off. It might smudge a little. If it smudges too much you can always wipe it off and do it again.
Spray the snowflakes on wherever you want! The stencil might start getting too loaded with snow and smudge more so just clean it off with water, dry it, and keep going. I think I washed mine after every 4 snowflakes.

Enjoy your winter wonderland and then just clean your windows when the season is over!
