Recently I had the children work on a quick little craft that was inspired by Dawn's stained glass window decorations. I brought the materials over to Chris' house for our Friday craft time.
I had squares of tissue paper, purchased already cut up thank-you-very-much, and an outline of a window shape that I cut out of black card stock. I had the children lay the outlines in laminating sheets and arrange the tissue to their liking.
They enjoyed this process a lot. There were many consultations as to color. :).
When they were happy with their colors I had them lay a carstock black cross on top, and through the laminator it all went. Then we trimmed with a sharp scissors to retain the window shape and hung them up.
Pretty, no? I had to wait for a cloudy day to take a photo. Taking a picture of a window is tricky.
Contact paper would work just as well if you don't have a laminator.
I hope you enjoyed our little craft. I'll be sharing more soon.
How beautiful! We have made baby jar candles using tissue paper but never thought of making stained glass windows. As a homeschooling mom, I saw your post on Dawn’s blog and thought I would visit. HAPPY EASTER, ROSE
What a fun (and pretty!) craft. My kids would love this!! Happy Easter!

Great thing that you know how to make your own stained window glass and I commend you for that because it looks refreshing. To those who don’t have time to make one, they can rely to the commercially produced stained glass window for their homes.
