Easter Kids Craft and a Pinterest FAIL

Happy Wednesday!  Hope you are enjoying this week as much as I am…Today I am sharing an easy craft and a Pinterest FAIL.

First up…

Kid Friendly Stained Glass

This is a winner at my house for one main reason…It involves quite a bit of glue.  Not as much as my Pinterest FAIL, but we’ll get to that in a bit.  My boys love using glue and a dot of glue to me is much different than a dot of glue to them.  Anyway…

What you will need:

Paper plates (or heavy paper)

wax paper

tissue paper (various colors)


Start by drawing and cutting out your desired shape onto a paper plate, then cut out.  Tear or cut tissue paper into smaller pieces.  Here comes the glue…Glue the pieces of tissue paper onto a sheet of wax paper.  Allow to dry.

Glue wax paper with tissue collage onto the paper plate so that the part you see is the smooth wax paper side.  Trim edges.

Now, just…Punch a hole, tie a ribbon and hang in your window.  These can be made for any season using different shapes and colors of tissue paper.

And Now For A Pinterest Fail…Ugh!

So, I saw this idea multiple times on Pinterest and thought we should give it a try.  Why?  Because it uses glue as a main ingredient…Lots of glue.  Did I mention, we like glue at our house?

Window Clings {made with glue}

I admit, I usually DO NOT follow directions.  I typically look at the picture and recreate what I see.  BUT this time I actually read and followed the directions. (I learned my lesson!)

What I was supposed to do was make a template or use a cookie cutter.

Pinterest fail so add glitter {}

I let it dry and dry and dry for a couple days.

The glue ran and the shapes we created morphed into their own shapes.

Gluey mess {}

Then, they wouldn’t peel off the wax paper.  They curled. They made a glittery mess on my floor.

They looked nothing like they were supposed to.  Ugh!  What a waste of glue!

So…DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME (unless you want a fun excuse for your kiddos to use glue)!

If you made these at home and they worked…What did I do wrong?

What Pinterest FAILS have you experienced?

  1. Mine did the same thing Ariean! I got them to stay in the cookie cutter holding it there until the glue set a little, but then they wouldn’t come off!

    My little one and I made the stained glass this morning with a little twist (I didn’t have any waxed paper). I posted about it on my blog. Thank you so much for sharing such great crafts for the kiddos! We had a blast.

  4. we used to make these when we were little – only with colored glue. we used to put the glue on some kind of plastic sheeting (reminds me of what i’d call overhead projector sheets used in school when i was younger). if i remember correctly, the key was using a small amount of glue to keep the shape.
