Tissue Paper Stained Glass Hearts.. such an easy craft! With a little help from an adult, almost any age would be able to make these! I love this craft as a Valentine's Day decoration! This craft was featured in the Family Movie Night: Beauty and the Beast post, make sure to go check it out!
What you will need:
Tissue paper in pink, red and white
Construction paper in pink, red and white
Clear contact paper
Begin by cutting the pink, red and white tissue paper in 1/2 to 1 inch squares. A little goes a long way, so don't cut too much!
To make your heart shape (or any other shape), fold a piece of construction paper in half and cut half of a heart, this makes sure that both sides are equal. If you want to try another shape, just cut the folded construction paper into a half circle, square, oval or star. While, the construction paper is still folded, cut a parallel shape about 1 inside the shape. This will create heart shape with a hallow center.
Next, open the heart and center it on the contact paper. From here the kids can fill the inside of the heart with the cut tissue paper. Be sure not to put any tissue paper outside of the shape border.
After your child has finished decorating the heart shape, place another sheet of contact paper on top. Press on the contact paper to seal, making sure they are no air bubbles. Cut around the outside of the shape, leaving a small amount of contact paper to keep the shape in contact better.
After your shapes have been cut out, hand them on the window! They will look beautiful!
