Halloween Window Gel Clings

Back in April I posted a recipe to make your own window gel clings. The ones we made in April caught the warm rays from the sun all spring and summer until my five-year-old decided it was time to start decorating for Halloween. We replaced our spring window jellies with a spooky Halloween version this week.

Please note: This is the first time I have EVER decorated my house for Halloween. You are witnessing something special here, folks šŸ™‚ I’m usually much lazier than this. Last year my son wanted to decorate our house so bad, so I sent him to the neighbor’s house to help them decorate their house for Halloween instead. I didn’t get off so easy this year šŸ™‚

We used orange, black, red, and green food coloring this time. We used the gel food coloring instead of the regular food coloring we used last time, and I can honestly say I didn’t notice a difference. Both work just fine. I left out the glitter this time around. It will probably come back out for our winter/Christmas themed jellies šŸ™‚

We had four cookie cutters – a ghost, a pumpkin, a cat, and a bat. The window jellies turned out wonderful and the kids loved playing in the leftovers. The gelatin is cold and squishy – a great sensory experience for the kiddos!

Also, don’t look too close at my dirty windows! They are clean on the inside, I swear. And if I clean the outside, they just get dirty again and that’s not good enough for me!

Be sure to check out my previous post for the entire easy how-to and enjoy!

  1. That's a great question! We always stick them in our southern facing window that gets lots of sun and they stick just fine. Portland isn't particularly hot most of the time, though šŸ™‚ I would love to hear how it works when you give it a try.

  3. I guess you could say it's a version of Jell-o! It's made with unflavored gelatin. Edible, but not very tasty! As some sugar and fruit flavoring and you've got yourself some Jell-o šŸ™‚
