Nice design, poor production Nov 02, 2010
The Martha Stewart clings have nicely designed, spooky graphics, but as others have noted, they don't cling that well. They hold fine with tape though. A couple other notes. Unlike the WOW designs, these are black silhouettes on clear vinyl - so if you want a solid color glow behind the silhouette, you need curtains or blinds and a bright light. The clings are designed to stick directly to the glass, so for windows with panes, you either need to cut them up or tape them to the edge of the window. Also, these are smaller than other full window covers, so you may need to tape directly to the window for proper positioning.

No trouble with cling Jul 28, 2012
By M. Moore
I never had an issue with cling. I clean my window well first, then use a damp sponge to wipe on a thin layer of water, like you would for a suction cup. I also use a small squeegee to wipe out bubbles, starting from the center and wiping out to the sides. There will be some bubbles left, but they are not noticeable at night. I have translucent roman shades to provide a background and soft glow behind the cling. If you have heavier curtains or drapes, you need to leave them open.
AWESOME Dec 26, 2014

Best Halloween decoration EVER! One thing I would like to say, not that it is a negative thing, is that aside from the black image of the skeleton and it's spider, the background is clear. I was expecting a colored background instead because of the pictures. It actually is a lot better looking with the clear background. The size is really great as well. I have a small shop on a four lane highway and when driving past, I could CLEARLY see the entire image from the farthest lane away. It would be perfect for home users too I'd imagine. I'm not sure of the exact specs, but I'd say after eyeballing it that it is probably around 2-3 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide.
Also, the best way I found to put it up was to put the clear vinyl and it's white background (also part of the packaging) up to the spot on your window where you want it. Press the back and the vinyl up against the window until it is completely flat. Then peel the white back piece away from the vinyl (it will stay stuck to the window) and this will neatly place the vinyl onto your window with hardly any air bubbles.
When going to take it down, you basically do that same process but backwards. Press the white back piece against the vinyl on your windows, lining up its edges. The slowly peel from the top down, while also clamping the vinyl to the white backing. All the while, roll the two pieces together. After you roll once or twice, you shouldn't have to line up and it will roll up easily from there. Definitely something you can reuse!
I really like this silhouette Oct 24, 2014
By Rita Kauer
I really like this silhouette. I had one before and couldn't find it this year so I ordered another. The only think I was dissappointed in was it didn't cling to the window very well. I had to resort to some scotch tape to keep it up. I don't remember my first one having that problem. In fact all the Marth Stewart Silhouette's I purchased this year had the same problem.
Clings Just Fine ~ 4yrs in a row Sep 01, 2012
By Courtney Dietzmann
I've been using Martha Stewart window clings for the past few years now, and have had no issues with clinging. As with any window clings, you're supposed to clean the windows first. Of course, if the clings get dusty, they won't stick.
Cold weather plays a factor as well. I live in Minnesota; It's usually about 40*F here in October. And have had no issues with cling.
As for the air bubbles, because this is a large sheet, you need to roll it on carefully. I start at the bottom (so I can line up the bottom of the skeleton with the bottom of the window), and carefully press the cling on as I go up, sliding my hands from side-to-side, to remove bubbles. It's not difficult at all.
Considering the re-usability factor, I consider this a great purchase. And it looks pretty awesome peaking out of our bedroom window when guests or treaters arrive. :-)
