Sometimes I see a design and instantly know what I want to create. Faux stained glass may have been an obvious choice with these designs, but I needed to come up with a simple way to create the look using supplies I had on hand. After figuring out which products to use, my little crafter was as eager as I was to get started.
The trick to making these faux stained glass designs is using frosted vinyl as a base. I cut only the outline of the design from the frosted vinyl. Then my son filled in each design with a light layer of kids paint.
I cut the designs from printable silver foil as the paint dried. Once the paint was completely dry, I layered the printable silver foil on the vinyl piece.
Transfer paper isn’t needed (or recommended) since the printable silver foil gives the frosted vinyl stability. Simply peel up each design and stick them on your window. The frosted vinyl allows just enough light to shine through the paint and mimic the look of stained glass.
My son was more than happy to get involved since he’s all about painting. He beams seeing his creations displayed on the window. If you’re artistically skilled, you could be more intricate while painting these faux stained glass pieces. It’s is a fun craft for all ages and painting abilities!
