If I could recommend one product you need this coming holiday season, it’s Cricut Window Cling.
I’ve been playing around with this product this week, and I’m loving the seasonal and holiday decals I can make.
It’s so easy to use and can be used for so many different projects.
In this post I’m going to tell you all about Cricut Window Cling. I’ll tell you what it is, how to cut it with your Cricut, where you can buy it, and I’ll give you some ideas for what you can make with it.
Cricut Window Cling vinyl is used to create static decals. Window Cling is best when applied to glass. It does not have an adhesive backing like Cricut adhesive vinyl, and it cannot be heat applied, like Cricut Iron-On.
It attaches to the window on its own with static energy. Keep the following in mind:
Indoor use only – including the inside of car windows
Reusable – can easily be re-positioned again and again
Very easy to remove – does not leave any residue behind
Other things that it can be applied to include fridges, whiteboards, and other non-porous surfaces.

Instructions on how to cut Window Cling with the Cricut Maker:
Lay Cricut Window Cling onto the standard green cutting mat
In Design Space, select ‘browse all materials’ and choose Window Cling
Mirror mats if you would like the design cut in reverse
Load mat and it’s time to press CUT
Once cut, you can weed the excess window cling away from the backing paper and you are left with your decals. Keep the backing paper to store your decals when they are not in use.
It is extremely easy to weed Cricut Window Cling, and it barely requires any effort at all.
Some projects will require you to reverse your mats so that your designs are cut in reverse, while other projects will not.
Reversing means that the design is cut backwards. For example, if you are making a decal that says ‘Merry Christmas’, you will need to decide if you want it to be read from the inside of your home, or the outside. Most commonly, people want it to be read from the outside.
Because Window Cling can only be applied to glass indoors, you will need to reverse your mats for the ‘Merry Christmas’ to be read from the outside.
If you were creating decals for mirrors, you would not have to reverse your mats. You can only look at a mirror from one side! Also, if you are only cutting designs that have no text, it probably doesn’t matter if you reverse it or not.
