Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Fall In Love With Stained Glass

For an easy "stained glass" craft, you will need contact paper (2 pieces per stained glass), scissors, and pieces of colorful tissue paper.

1. Before removing the contact paper backing, cut out a leaf shape. You will need two shapes (for the front and back).
2. Remove the backing from one piece of contact paper.
3. Lay down thin pieces of tissue paper.
4. Remove backing from second piece of contact paper and lay on top, sealing the tissue paper in.
Optional: Cut out the same shape in construction paper. Cut out the middle portion. This will be the border that gives shape to the stained glass. Remove backing from one piece of contact paper. Lay down construction paper and fill in with pieces of tissue paper. Cover with second sheet of contact paper. This is a great option for preschoolers or younger kids who can't keep the paper off of the edges of the contact paper.
