This melted crayon 'stained glass' window amazes kids because the finished project is so beautiful. From simple materials you can craft something extraordinary.
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.
Cut black construction paper and into 5" x 5" squares.
Trace a leaf on one of the squares and then carefully cut out the leaf with the two squares together. The squares will be solid around the edges with a leaf pattern cut out of the center.
Shave crayons in 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.
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.
