This stained glass DIY involves no real glass, but it exudes the translucent nature of stained glass to add clarity and light to any room. These color-tinted photo frames by blogger One Lovely Day is a dainty way to brighten up, as well as add color and dimension to any plain window or wall.
Embroidery hoops and tissue paper are used to replicate the stained glass effect. Because tissue wrapping paper is so thin, it lets light through and emits a subtle hue. The full pictorial and instructions are available on the One Lovely Day blog.
This glass-free project effectively captures the essence of stained glass using materials you wouldn’t have thought of using otherwise. It’s a cute and personalized gift idea as well, for house warmings or showers.
