Stained Glass Tissue Window


I loved the idea of covering an entire window with tissue paper shapes the moment I saw it over at Filth Wizardry.  Isn't it gorgeous?

Here's how we did it.

Materials:
various colors of tissue paper
scissors
clear water based glue (We used Elmer's)
foam brushes

Step 1: Spend a little time cutting shapes out of the various colors of tissue paper.  If you can coax your sweet heart into helping you this step will go much much faster.

Step 2: Clean your window.

Step 3: Smear some glue onto a section of the window.


Step 4: Overlap and smooth the tissue paper shapes.


Step 5: Repeat steps 3 & 4 until the window is covered.


This activity also produces a fun photo back drop :)
