Stained Glass Autumn Leaves and Jack-O-Lanterns

by Jean Van't Hul
October 24, 2009

We had a couple friends over yesterday to make stained glass leaves with us. We used crayon shavings and waxed paper and made them much the way we made our valentine hearts.

These are just taped to the window though, rather than hung by string. I love how they look with the sun shining through them!

Maia and I also had fun making these stained glass jack-o-lanterns.


She’s very excited about Halloween and has been talking a lot lately about costume possibilities and what people will dress up as. This conversation usually segues into a discussion about what people will be when they grow up—as if there’s a connection. Since she’s planning to be a red dragon for Halloween, I think that’s pretty funny.
