If you’re looking for a really beautiful and unique handmade gift this year, THIS is it! This is a “stained glass” window you can make yourself without needing to know anything about traditional stained glass techniques. That’s because it’s OUR stained glass is made with a Sharpie permanent marker! Can you believe it? It’s amazing, isn’t it?

To make your faux stained glass window, you begin with a double glass floating frame. A floating frame just means that there are two pieces of glass the same size in the frame. You can get these at craft and frame stores, and I’ve included a link to where I found everything on Amazon. This floating frame is 11″ x 14″ in size.
To create the lines you see in real stained glass, which by the way were traditionally made from lead, we’re going to use black permanent adhesive vinyl. Much safer than lead! One twelve by fifteen piece of black vinyl is all you need for one window. You’ll also want a similarly sized piece of transfer tape to get that vinyl onto your glass.
I used my Cricut cutting machine to cut the design from black vinyl, along with the fine point blade, a green StandardGrip cutting mat, a weeding tool, and a scraper.
And, of course, we need our Sharpie markers! I used several colors from this pack of 24 to get the variations you see here. But you can get to pick whatever colors you wish! That’s a big part of the fun, right?
Other items to have on hand include a craft knife, isopropyl alcohol, and some lint-free towels.
Last but not least, you need the pattern. I have two different designs — waves and flowers — and you can pick whichever one you want. So let me show you where to find the designs, and then I’ll show you how to cut and color your stained glass window!
