How to Decorate Your Windows with Spray Snow
Enjoy the winter wonderland by decorating your windows with spray snow. It’s a quick and easy way to add some holiday cheer to your home regardless of the weather outside. All you need is a can of spray snow and some patience. With just a few simple steps, you can create a festive and wintery look for your home. In this article, we will discuss ways to decorate your window with spray snow. First, you’ll need to gather your supplies. You’ll need a can of spray snow, some clear tape, and a pair of scissors. Once you have your supplies, you’re ready to get started.
Choosing a spray snow
Spray snow is a product used to create the look of snow on windows and other surfaces. There are different types of spray snow, so be sure to choose one that is meant for glass surfaces. You don’t want your windows to end up looking frosty. For a thick opaque look, use the dimensional spray snow. Go for water-based spray instead of plastic-based versions as it is easier to remove when you’re ready to take down your winter decorations. Plastic-based spray snows are meant for more permanent use. In case you want the light to pass through your snowed window, get a product that creates an ice crystal or frosty snow effect. Always refer to the label on the product to see what surfaces it can be used on.
Applying the spray snow
Start by cleaning the inside of your window. This will help the spray snow adhere better and create a more even coverage. It is worth mentioning that some snow spray can be used on the outer side of the window, but the colder it is outside, the longer the snow spray will take to dry. Next, use clear tape to create a template for your design. You can be as creative as you like with this step. Try out different shapes and patterns. Start by spraying a small amount on wax paper or cardboard to test how it will look. After you’re happy with your design, it’s time to start spraying. Once you have your template in place, it’s time to start spraying. According to hunker, be sure to hold the can about 12 inches away from the window as you work. If your snow spray is thick and clumpy, stand a little further from the window to avoid dripping. For best results, try to create consistent coverage across the entire design. In case you are using stencils, use painter tape around each stencil to tape it in place before you start spraying. Remember that if the stencil has any words, it will be reversed when you remove it. Also, be sure to allow the spray snow to dry completely before removing the tape or stencils. Once you’re finished spraying, carefully remove the template and enjoy your wintery window display.

How to clean spray snow from glass windows
Eventually, the time will come to take down your winter decorations. When it’s time to say goodbye to your spray snow window display, here’s how to remove it:
Protect the area around the window
Before jumping to window cleanup, take some time to protect the area around it. According to RENEWAL by ANDERSEN, this will make the job much easier and help avoid any accidents. Cover the floor with a drop cloth or old towels. You can also tape some plastic sheeting to the wall to catch any stray snowflakes.
Vacuum loose artificial snow
After ensuring the place is set and safe, use a vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment to remove any loose artificial snow. The more snow you remove the easier the cleaning will be.
Use a window cleaner
Attack the tough artificial snow by spraying it with a window cleaner. You can also use an all-purpose cleaner or vinegar solution. Let the cleaner soak in for a minute or two before wiping it away with a dry cloth.
Repeat as necessary
You may need to go over the window several times to remove all of the spray snow. Be sure to use a different section of the cloth each time to avoid spreading around any dirt or grime.
Wipe down the window frame
Once the window is clean, take a damp cloth and wipe down the frame. This will remove any cleaner residue and leave your window looking sparkling clean.
Dry the window
Use a dry cloth to remove any moisture from the window. Ensure the cloth is clean to avoid leaving streaks. Remember for light coverage simply uses a damp cloth to wipe away the snow. Just be sure the cloth is only slightly damp, so you don’t damage the window. The most important thing to note during fake snow cleaning on windows is to avoid scraping. This can damage the glass, so it’s important to be as gentle as possible. With a little patience, your windows will be clean and ready for the next decorations.
