Now that Easter is over it’s time to get back to spring crafts with the kids. We made Stained Glass Flowers using toilet paper rolls and tissue paper. They are simple to make and so pretty when they are done.
Empty toilet paper or paper towel rolls
Tissue paper cut in 3″x3″ squares
1. Cut tissue paper into 3″x3″ squares. You will need 1 piece of tissue paper for each flower pedal.
3. Use paint brush to brush glue on the sides of the paper roll pieces then take a piece of tissue paper and cover the tissue paper roll. We found that setting the toilet paper roll on top of the tissue paper and then wrapping the sides was the easiest. We also watered down our glue to make it easier to apply. Once you have 5-7 pieces covered set them to dry.
4. Put a dot of glue on the side of the paper roll and glue two pieces together. Secure with a paperclip to hold it together while it dries. Continue until you have glued all pieces together. Once the glue has dried you can remove the paper clips and your done. If you want you could tape a piece of string on the back to hang them up.
We loved looking at our flowers on the window, they added some nice bright color to our home.
