If you are a Stained Glass fan, you will know how expensive it can be. Today we’re excited to share a genius Faux Stained Glass DIY that uses glue and Acrylic Paint. Imagine the beautiful results you can achieve.

You can use this technique for glass panels and windows in your own home. It’s ideal for sidelights in entry halls, bathroom windows, and also when you need to hide off walls and fences.

Stained Glass allows sunlight, but can obscure the unsightly. It’s the perfect alternative and has unlimited uses and potential.

  • 1 bottle of White Glue and 1 of Clear Glue
  • An 8 x 10 Photo Frame (or a large sheet of glass can be used)

To start making your own Faux Stained Glass, your will need to find a template of something you would like to make. We suggest that your initial project be something simple. A butterfly is a good example of a simple project.

Suzy says this project is child-friendly. You could get the kids to help, and even use a page from a Coloring Book for a template.

Tips For Tinting With Food Coloring

The above photo has been uploaded to our Pinterest account. Michelle Kahclamat made this stunning elephant and she left some very helpful feedback on the Pin that we thought you would appreciate. Here’s what she had to say.

“We bought 8×10 frames at the dollar tree and used black puff paint and clear glue mixed with food coloring. So far the sun hasn’t melted the project haha!

It is even easy for the kiddos to do! Paint thick! Thin will not look as good. We are also experiencing bubbling on some of them. When drying, lie flat.

You can also replace the glass with transparent plastic paper, or A4 plastic pockets will also work well. If you don’t have food coloring on hand, you can also use acrylic paints. If you substitute the Mod Podge, be sure that you use white glue.
