Stained Glass Cross Craft | #Easter #craft #cross

I love craft projects that I can do with both of my boys.  Stained Glass Crosses is a craft project that all ages can help with and the results are spectacular!  I think this is a great project to do for Easter and the crosses look beautiful on our sliding glass door.

Materials Needed:

  • tissue paper – variety of colorswax paper
  • white glue
  • popsicle stick
  • craft knife
  • scissors
  • cross template (or just draw your own)
  • helpers


Find a helper to tear tissue paper into small pieces. Roll out a piece of wax paper that is double the width of the template.

Spread glue onto half of the wax paper using a popsicle stick.

Piece by piece add the tissue paper until all the glue is covered.

Spread glue onto the other half of the wax paper and fold over on top of the tissue.

Smooth the paper and let dry.  I like to put something heavy on top so it dries nice and flat.

Print out the template and cut out the crosses.  I used a craft knife.

Run a thin line of glue around the perimeter of the crosses on the back of the paper.

Turn the paper over and glue it to the wax paper.  Let dry.

Cut out around the crosses and tape to a well-lit window and enjoy!

    Made these with my 5 year old granddaughter, her Mom, and her Nanny…we had lots of fun and they came out wonderfully…all 4 different. Gave one to her 84 year old grand aunt and it is hanging on her window in the nursing home…truly brightens up the room. Thank you so much for the idea and instructions. God bless, Sally

    Thank you so much, Trish, this has so many uses for so many different occasions and holidays. And for so many ages. Bryce did a beautiful job on his rainbow!!!

  22. Thanks for this creative idea! I did this with my son today.

  23. Absolutely love these, thanks! Trying them out before I have my art class at our homeschool group do them and had a couple questions. I think with the first one I used too much glue cause it was very flimsy, lol. How long do they take to dry (at the stage before they get glued to the crosses)? Are you using construction paper for the cross templates or a more heavy duty paper? Thanks! :)
