How To Make Faux Stained Glass

This pretty stained glass window is really crumpled cellophane sandwiched between two frames. And the “leading” is puff paint!

Stained Glass Window

Materials
2 Wooden Picture Frames, 12”x12”
Krylon Brown Hammered Finish Spray Paint
Cellophane in Magenta, Green, Turquoise, Blue, Yellow, and Purple
Mod Podge
1 fl.oz. 3D Fabric Paint, Charcoal Grey (Scribbles by IloveToCreate)
2 Eye Hooks, Gunmetal
Clear silicone waterproof sealant
Chain, Gunmetal
Pliers

Steps
1. Paint one frame gun metal. Screw in hook eyes. Use pliers to open and close chain link to attach to hook eyes.

2. Print the pattern so it fits the glass in your frame. Lay one piece of glass on top of pattern. Cut cellophane pieces to fit pattern. Glue onto glass with ModPodge.

3. Lay second piece of glass on pattern. Trace black lines with 3D Fabric Paint. Let dry for 24 hours.

4. Apply a bead of clear silicone inside the frame then insert the painted glass (paint-side facing front) into frame. Insert cellophane glass cellophane-side facing front behind first piece of glass. Apply a bead of clear silicone all the way around the frame at the edge of the glass. Let cure 24 hours. (Optional: when silicone is cured, cover silicone with a line of 3D paint and let dry.) Hang in a window.

Pattern (Print so pattern fits glass in frame)

Tips:
Clean both sides of glass with glass cleaner before you start and spot clean any finger prints before you finish framing.

We love getting pinned!
