Stained Glass Windows

Decorate your the windows of your classroom or house with these beautiful stained glass window pictures. Design your own picture or trace over one of our Christmas colouring pages to help. The black lines are "drawn" with wool (yarn) which makes the craft interesting for all ages and abilities of artists!

Stained glass windows craft
Our Jingle Bells window - so pretty!

You will need:

Clear sticky back plastic (book film)
Black card
Black wool (yarn)


Fold the black card in half and cut out a window arch from the centre of the card.

Cut a piece of sticky back plastic to the same size as the card. Peel off the backing and stick on the card so the 'window' is covered by sticky film.

Use the black yarn to 'draw' a picture, pressing it down hard onto the sticky side of the plastic so it stays in place. If you need help print out one of our colouring pages, place it underneath and use the lines to help you (we used one of our new Christmas word colouring pages with bells to do the Jingle bells window).

Fill in one area of the picture at a time, by tipping on a small amount of glitter and spreading it around up to the yarn edges. Repeat until all areas are filled.

Only when all areas are filled shake off the extra glitter and you are left with a sparkly picture to hang in your window.
