Chocolay Childrens Center Creative Kids Idea…

Melted Crayon Stained Glass Window

This melted crayon ‘stained glass’ window amazes kids because the finished project is so beautiful. From simple materials you can craft something extraordinary.

What you’ll need:

  • Black construction paper
  • Waxed paper
  • Crayons or crayon pieces in fall colors
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Iron (requires adult supervision)

How to make it:

  1. Take black construction paper and cut it into 5″ x 5″ squares.
  2. With two pieces of paper together, trace a leaf on the top square and then cut out the leaf with the two pieces together. The squares will be solid around the edges with a leaf pattern cut out of the center.
  3. Next shave crayons using the colors of fall leaves. Using a warm iron, melt the crayon shavings between two pieces of wax paper. Then cut down the wax paper to fit between the two squares of construction paper.
  4. To assemble the window, place one square of construction paper on the table and glue your wax paper glass to that square. Then place the second square over the first square making sure your leaf pattern matches up and glue the two squares together.

Tips:

  • When tracing the leaf, I traced it on the paper on the diagonal so when we hung them they were hung from the corner of the square.
  • We used little suction cups with hooks to hang it on windows.
