Hearts! Hearts! Everywhere hearts! Is how my children and I usually feel for half of February. Anything that we can turn into, create, or make into a heart...we pretty much do.

So when I found out a secret to making window clings, a very hot craft store item--I knew we must make hearts! 

With just two ingredients you can make these sweet love symbols to decorate your windows this Valentine's Day. (Just be sure not to leave the clings on too long. You don't want to run the risk of staining your windows! I haven't had that problem, but my kids take the clings on and off pretty often...)

How We Did It

The secret...puffy paint. Yep, that's how it's done. Get a fun assortment of festive colors and a sandwich bag and begin creating your hearts!

I made a lot of heart shapes right on the bag first and my daughter filled them in. I don't know what it is about these paints, but whenever I bring them out I have her 100% attention. She loves using puffy paint, to say the least.

Then she went for some more abstract kinds of hearts. This could be used for any kind of theme. Imagine the cute pumpkins you could make or birthday balloons. It's just so simple!

Next, time to dry! They need to dry overnight.

The next day the clings peeled right off and they felt really cool. My kids loved this part of it.

We had glitter hands from earlier in the day, but look how pretty the glitter looks on the heart.

They stuck right on the window and can be easily taken on and off. It ended up being sort of a fun sticker play scene for the kids. They loved moving them around. Gave me an idea for another window cling theme...people!

My child and I completed Puffy Paint Window Clings. We filled the middles with white glue like the recent polar crate craft!

How long is 'too long', approximately? I'd hate to forget them there!
