Looking for a way to bring the warmth of fall’s colors indoors?
Want to plan a fun family activity that only takes minutes?
Turn mementos from a fall nature walk into a lasting memory you’ll enjoy through the winter with a 10-minute project you and your kids will love.
In this article I’ll show you how to create homemade “stained glass” from colorful fall leaves in 3 easy steps.
Why Make Stained Glass Leaf Art?
There’s something fascinating about autumn leaves: to see something that was verdant just a few weeks ago magically transformed into bright yellows, deep oranges, rich reds and dark browns is mesmerizing to a child—or anyone, if you stop to think about it for a minute.
It’s great fun to take a walk with your family in search of the prettiest fall leaves, hearing the dry ones crunch underfoot as you look up into the canopy.
Fall leaf stained glass gives you a way to preserve the lovely leaves you gather and enjoy their colors long after the trees have gone bare.
