How To Make A Stained Glass American Flag

I loved making stained glass decorations with my children. We are in full gear getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July and thought Stained Glass American Flags would add to our patriotism.

 Materials:

  • Cardstock Outline of an American Flag
  • Clear contact paper
  • Red, white, and blue tissue paper
  • White cardstock for the stars
  • Scissors

To Make:

1. Cut out the outline of an American Flag. I used my Silhouette to cut out the shape.

2. Cut out two pieces of clear contact paper that are both the same shape. They should be slightly bigger than your American Flag cutout.

3. Cut out small squares out of the red, white, and blue tissue paper. Place the colored squares onto the American Flag. The tissue paper will stick to the contact paper.

4. Cut out small stars out of white cardstock. Place onto the blue tissue paper. We did not need to use glue since the stars stuck to the contact paper.

5. When the flag is finished, place the 2nd piece of contact paper over the finished design and cut out. I like to cut just a bit outside of the outline to keep all the sides stuck together.

6. Hang and enjoy!
