Stained Glass Valentines

 So I know the holiday was a week ago but I am finally getting around to posting pictures from the past few weeks so I figured I would share what we did for Valentines.
 We actually did these stained glass hearts at the end of January to decorate for the coming month. We took down the snowflakes that had graced these glass doors for Christmas/Winter and figured it sure didn't feel like Winter anymore we needed something new to make the place a little bit festive.
 I cut out contruction paper hearts and some tissue papers. We put them together and slipped the hearts into pouches for the laminator and sent them through and then cut off the extra plastic.  Super easy and they turned out beautiful. Even better than similar projects we had done like this using contact paper.

These glass doors have light streaming through them most mornings and the kids sit and do their school work here on the table covered with the shadows of the hearts.

It made for a lovely February decoration and fun craft project for the kids to do one morning.
