Stained Glass Paper Hearts
Stained Glass paper hearts
These beautiful homemade stained glass hearts are easy to make, and a thoughtful Valentine decoration or gift.  String them together to make a garland for your mantel, or attach to your windows to let the light shine through. 
A great project for little hands that need practice with fine motor skills, kids will love tearing, cutting and gluing these works of art.  Using wax paper, the hearts are see-through - and you can make this craft with as many colors as you like. 
For older children, they can make pictures inside of their glass, such as landscapes, flowers or shapes - anything is possible.
