I live in a tiny apartment, ie less then 260 square feet.  There isn't much room for a lot of decorations.  So I came up with these snowflakes.  I took the Ikea window cling stuff and cut out circles.  Then I folded the circles into triangles and then cut random patterns into them.  Then voila!  Instant snow flakes! 



I stuck the first batch on my front door.
This is my favorite little one:


I will be making more for my mirrors and other windows in my house.  Thanks for looking and tell me what you think!

Ooooooo! What a great idea, and so pretty!  I didn't know Ikea sold window cling stuff.  What department is it in?

I am glad ya'll like them!

The window cling stuff is near the curtains and such.  The film makes the window opaque.  I have seen is for sale in Collection Etc. catalog too.  It is like removable Contact paper.  I hope that helps.

I think I'll have to run to Ikea's website and see if I can find some there.  Up here in the far North where the ground is already mostly covered with snow (Maine), we don't have an Ikea to close.   Cry  I love this idea though so it might be worth the effort of finding the cling paper.

I hear that.  I live 5 hours away from Ikea but I luckily had some left over.  I reused curtains for my front door from my old place and there was a gap so I had to cut "grass" to cover the gap.  You can see it in the picture.

I went to Ikea's website and found it:
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30079228

Or here is the stuff from Collections Etc.

I bet you could use contact paper too but it will probably be harder to peel off.  I once accidentally bought semi-permanent contact paper.  I think it would work too.   

I hope that helps!

Wow....wait to go answers with no work.  Thank you so much for finding that.  I'll have to check it out once I am happily at home on my couch with my kitten.   Smiley
