Stained glass Easter eggs are easily made by cutting out a paper egg, snowflake-style, and adding tissue paper.

If you’re looking for an Easter craft to do with your kids, we have a fun one for you.

These stained-glass Easter eggs are easy to make and are striking when hung in a sunny window.

We’ve made other Easter suncatchers, using both tissue paper and flower petals, but there’s something about the black paper against the transparent tissue paper that really pops in these stained-glass eggs!

  1. Fold and cut your egg

    First, fold your sheet of construction paper in half vertically and draw a half egg on one side. Cut through both layers of paper to create your symmetrical egg.

  2. Draw shapes on your egg

    Next, draw shapes along the center fold line of your paper egg and cut them out.

    Note: You can also cut them out directly, without drawing them first, as when making a paper snowflake.

  3. Add more shapes

    Open your paper egg, then fold both sides inward.

    Draw, then cut, more shapes along both folded sides of the paper egg.

  4. Add ‘stained glass’

    Finally, use a glue stick to glue colored tissue paper to the back of your Easter egg (the side with the white pencil markings).
    You can do strips of different colors or use one sheet of tissue paper for the entire egg.

    Trim the edges if necessary.
