We made a new stained glass window for the front door. And you know how I am about color. I love it. I’ve been wanting to try this ever since we made the other scribble stained glass, and this seems a good time with Maia’s birthday around the corner and “rainbow” part of her requested party theme (rainbow fairies, princesses, and unicorns).

Here’s how we made it:

MATERIALS

INSTRUCTIONS 

Two young girls scribbling on a sheet of easel roll using oil pastels.

Step 1: Make Scribble Art

The girls were given a sheet of easel roll and scribbled all over the sheet with oil pastels (crayons would work too).

Drawn paper with rectangular shape markings the size of a window pane.

Step 2: Trace the Rectangles

I used a piece of paper the size of the window panes as a template to trace each rectangle.

Step 3: Painting the Rectangles

Maia painted in the rectangles with rainbow colors using liquid watercolors.

Step 4: Giving the Rectangles a Stained Glass Effect

After the paper dried, I cut out the rectangles, painted the back of each with vegetable oil, then stuck them to the window panes. Easy peasy.

And now we have a wonderfully colorful rainbow stained glass window for our front door!
