Faux Stained Glass Mosaic Luminary

Create this colorful lantern to brighten up long, dark evenings!
When I was a child, I loved came glasswork. My father had an antique shop, and I could sit and watch for hours these flickering, colorful spots created by stained glass decors and lamps. I’m a grown up girl right now, but I’m still fond of this kind of decoration.

That’s why I was happy to find this brilliant tutorial on how to make Faux Stained Glass Mosaic Luminary on Crafts By Amanda website. Of course, it would be easier to buy one, but hey, it’s the DIY fun we crave for, huh? In this case, the most important thing you need is patience - glass stains need some time to dry, and you can work on only one surface at a time. If you need a similar craft to make with your kids, check this adorable Glass Gem Sun Catcher - they will love it for sure!
