Kids Corner: ‘Stained Glass’ Leaves Project

You’re sure to fall for these sweet autumn leaves and their “stained-glass” look. Little fingers can help with tearing the tissue into tiny bits and pressing them into the glue.

1. Tear the tissue paper into small pieces. Tissue papers go a long way, so you won't need much, so save the rest for another project.
2. Print out or draw your own template of fall leaves. Click here for the printables pictured below.

3. Lay out the wax paper, approximately 20 inches long.
4. Spread a thin layer of glue and use the popsicle stick to spread using only half of the sheet.

5. Lay the tissue paper one at a time on the glue making a nice stained glass look. I like a lot of mixed colors.

6. Fold the wax paper over and press down and let dry.

7. Cut the leaves out and either use the colored papers as a border or just have them shaped in leaves.

So much fun for school projects and even at home on a rainy day.

The supplies you’ll need:

Tissue Paper (fall colors)
School glue
Waxed paper
Popsicle sticks to spread the glue
Fall Leaves Template (or you can draw your own)
Craft knife (to cut out the border center)
Paper (Fall colors)
