Stained glass has been around for a very long time and decorates many important monuments and landmarks all over the world. If there is stained glass everywhere else, why not have some in your own home? Stained glass offers beauty and color that no other form of art can give. If you want to learn how to make your own stained glass crafts, then keep reading.
During the holiday season many people try to think of new ways that they can decorate their home and yard. You can make a stained glass Christmas wreath than can hang on a door, window or wall. When some people think about stained glass, they are intimidated by the idea of working with glass and metal and having to cut and solder all those pieces together. But there are ways of getting the same look as stained glass with other materials. This wreath can be made with construction paper or poster board. Cut out the shape and size of wreath you want to use as a base for the project. Then take colored pieces of cellophane and cut them into stained glass sized and shaped pieces. Tape all the small pieces of cellophane together to form the main part of the wreath and then glue or tape the cellophane to the poster board cutout. You can also embellish this craft with sequins, beads or anything else that will make it stand out. This wreath can be hung anywhere in the house and will add beauty and flare during the holiday season. This can also be a great craft to have your kids participate in with your supervision.
