tissue paper-stained glass ornaments

This project is intended for kids ages 6+.
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the shapes.

Step 2

Trace both the outside and inside of the ornament pattern onto black cardstock, then cut out. You will need two of the same shape ornament to create one tissue paper stained glass ornament. Set aside.
TIP: To cut out the inside of the ornament shape, carefully poke a hole with the pointed end of the scissors to make a small hole, then continue to cut out the middle of the ornament.

Step 3

On a sheet of tracing paper, use a glue stick to adhere tissue squares. Be sure to overlap the squares as you go. Cover enough of the sheet of tracing paper to fill the inside of an ornament.

Step 4

Now, lay down the ornament template over the tracing paper that is covered with the tissue squares and trace the shape. Cut out the ornament shape, then glue it to the back of one of the black cardstock ornament shapes. Glue the second ornament shape to the back of the tracing paper (with tissue squares).

Step 5

ADULT: Punch a hole through the top of the ornament.

Step 6

Cut a chenille pipe cleaner in half, then insert it through the hole in the ornament. Form a loop, then twist the ends together to make a hanger.
