CIY Staff Tips:

  • This craft includes the use of glass and a hot glue gun. Adult assistance required.
  • Depending on the height and size of the opening in your squeeze bottle, use a skewer or craft stick to mix your glue and paint mixture.


Step 1

Pour glue into a squeeze bottle.

Step 2

Mix in 1/2 Tbsp black paint to colour the glue. Add more paint for a darker colour.

Step 3

Have an adult remove the glass and backing from a picture frame. Place glass on top of printed artwork of your choice.

Step 4

With your glue and paint mixture, trace the artwork directly onto the glass. Let dry 2–3 hours.

Step 5

Paint the glass with watercolours. Blend colours to create a stained glass effect. Let dry 1 hour.

Step 6

Have an adult use a hot glue gun around the edges of the frame to secure the glass.

Step 7

Hang or display in a window so the sun shines through your artwork!
