Stained Glass Heart

Young and old alike will enjoy making this pretty stained glass-style window ornament for Valentine's Day.

What you'll need

  • Waxed paper
  • Crayon shavings (adults can shave crayons with a scissors or knife)
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Hole punch
  • A few inches of string or ribbon

How to make it

  1. Fold a piece of waxed paper in half. Draw half a heart with the center of the heart at the fold.

  2. Open the waxed paper and place it flat on your work surface.

  3. Sprinkle/place the crayon shavings on the waxed paper. Little ones may sprinkle randomly, while older kids may want to make a pattern with the shavings. A light layer of shavings works best.

  4. Cover the waxed paper with an additional piece of waxed paper. Put a paper towel on top of the waxed paper (this will protect your iron), then have an adult iron the two layers of waxed paper together on low heat.

  5. Cut out the heart image. Punch a hole near the top of your heart and thread a string through the hole for hanging the heart. Hang it in front of a window so the light can shine through.
