It Works Best on a Sunny Day: Part 2

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

That was my hint to John about his surprise a little over a year ago. I can't believe that it's been a year since I've started creating my own stained glass masterpieces. Since starting on John's first piece, I've made 3 other pieces.

About a year ago I started on a beautiful piece that was possibly a little over my experience level. After sitting around untouched for so long, I finally deciding to finish it no matter how it turned out. Last week it got done. It took a lot of solder and help from my friend but it is beautifully hanging in my window at this very moment.

After finishing that piece, my mom decided she wanted to learn how to make stained glass too. She wanted to start with a simple angel for her sister's birthday. I didn't want to take over her project and do most of it for her, so I chose a cute hummingbird piece to make while showing her how to do all the steps. It was a two-fold project because it taught my mom what to do while also knocking out my grandmother's birthday present!

All in all, the stained glass pieces have turned out beautifully. I can't believe I'm making them. It's so fun and addictive. It's amazing you can turn a piece of glass into a work of art. Here are all of my works of art thus far. I want to make more but honestly I feel like I'm running out of usable windows!

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

  1. This is really awesome! Do you use a particular kit to make these?

  2. These are so pretty! I remember making similar things in art when I was in high school, but I've lost a lot of my craftiness ;)
