Craft Time: Stained Glass Heart
January 26, 2013 at 1:54 PM

             Stained Glass Heart


Difficulty: Easy

Age: 3 and up

Parental supervision is recommended

Young and old alike will enjoy making this pretty stained glass-style window ornament for Valentine's Day.

What you'll need:

  • Waxed paper
  • Crayon shavings (adults can shave crayons with a scissors or knife)
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Hole punch
  • A few inches of string or ribbon

How to make it:

  1. Fold a piece of waxed paper in half. Draw half a heart with the center of the heart at the fold. (See photo.)
  2. Open the waxed paper and place it flat on your work surface.
  3. Sprinkle/place the crayon shavings on the waxed paper. Little ones may sprinkle randomly, while older kids may want to make a pattern with the shavings. A light layer of shavings works best. (See photo.)
  4. Cover the waxed paper with an additional piece of waxed paper. Put a paper towel on top of the waxed paper (this will protect your iron), then have an adult iron the two layers of waxed paper together on low heat. (See photo.)
  5. Cut out the heart image (see photo). Punch a hole near the top of your heart and thread a string through the hole for hanging the heart (see photo). Hang it in front of a window so the light can shine through.
