Stain Glass Windows



old wax crayons 
wax paper
paper towels
hole punch
yarn or string


  • Children can choose the colors for their stain glass window.  Use  pink, red, or purple for Valentine's Day, green for St. Patrick's Day, flag colors for National holiday,  etc.)
  • Have the kids cut two pieces of wax paper into what ever shape they want (2 hearts, 2 clovers, ....
  • Grate crayons and place the shavings between two sheets of wax paper.
  • Have an adult can iron the wax paper between two pieces of paper towel .

The kids will love to watch the wax melt to create a unique design.

Once the kids cut a piece of string or yarn to hang up their masterpieces, the finished product looks great in a window!!!

Thank you to one of our visitors for sending in this idea.

Nicole used this project with a large group of kids.  Here are her tips for this craft idea.

Tips for Stain Glass Window craft:

  • Use an iron that you do not intend to use on fabric again because the crayon can seep through the wax paper and ruin the iron for future use
  • Use the name brand wax paper its worth the extra money the cheap stuff doesn't have the same look and it rips really easy
  • An old pencil sharpener works better than a grater its really hard to grate a crayon also if you heat the crayon slightly before grating or sharpening it works much better
  • Cheap waxier crayons are better the name brand are just too hard the waxier the better because they are softer
  • This is a super cute craft but is not very good for large groups
  • If you cut a design out of two pieces of black construction paper and put the melted crayon between them its really cute!

Thanks Nicole!
