Craft Difficulty Rating: Average

You Will Need:

  • Glass dome or other glass figure

  • Black permanent marker

  • Watercolor paints

  • Paintbrush


  1. The most time-consuming part of making this craft is creating your design with a permanent marker. All of your lines should connect in some fashion, as they would in a real stained glass window. If you want, you can actually create a picture within your lines.

  2. Color each section with watercolors. Bright colors work best for the stained glass look. Allow it to dry completely before picking it up.
