Starting materials


Method
Cut up some small scraps of coloured tissue paper and cellophane. Translucent materials work best as they will let light shine through when affixed to the window.

Cut a shape out of sticky back plastic. Cut a second piece the same shape as the first but slightly bigger. We allowed about a 1cm border.

We chose to make a circle and also a heart


Peel the protective backing off the smaller piece and stick pieces of tissue paper of cellophane onto the sticky side

Even very young children can enjoy this as the sticking is easy and no glue is required


Don't worry if you go over the edge - just trim round the edge to give a clean shape

Just trim the shape before you put the bigger top layer of sticky back plastic on


Add glitter if you want some sparkle

Peel the protective backing off the larger piece of sticky back plastic and stick onto your decorated piece, sticky side to sticky side

Stick the bigger piece of contact paper on top sticky sides together


You should now have a 'stained glass window' with a sticky border which can be affixed to a bedroom window or even a car window.

Our window looked really pretty with the light shining through


What shape will you make? Why not try making a colourful bird or rainbow? You could even try making a paper snow flake stain glass window at Christmas time.
