Stained glass crafts can be done using all kinds of materials by all kinds of people. Some professional artists use glass and metal to make intricate and beautiful windows while children use paper and glue to create fridge hangings. No matter what skill level you have, you can make a beautiful stained glass craft. Here is some more information on stained glass crafts for kids.
One of the most basic stained glass crafts that kids can make involves using construction paper and tissue paper. Take the construction paper and cut out holes that will make the pattern. These can range from very simple geometric shapes to intricate designs perhaps with multiple layers. Then cover the design with white or colored tissue paper to make the design shine through and create the glass effect. This same idea can be adapted for any special occasion or holiday and can always be a fun craft to do with your kids. Your kids will love making stained glass for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, the 4th of July and Christmas. Almost any holiday is a great occasion to make a stained glass craft.
