Stained Glass Windows

Simple and easy, everything you want a door dec to be! Perfect for a medieval, castle, or Beauty and the Beast theme!


Computer Paper




Black Puffy Paint


Cut your paper into the desired shape for your window. Use the ruler to trace a random pattern of intersecting lines onto your window. Color in triangles with different shades of the same color. Go over lines with a black crayon and add name with puffy paint.


  • Don’t be limited by one color combination or pattern, experiment and see what happens!
  • A touch of glitter glue along the black lines gives a beautiful light-shining-through-window effect!
