Stained Glass Witch


"Room on the Broom" by Julia Donaldson is one of my favorite Halloween books. We read it last week several times and made a fun Stained Glass Witch to go along with the book. This is the same exact pattern that we used last year in our Witch Craft, but we decided to switch it up and turned it into a Stained Glass Witch this go around.

You can find the pattern for the head HERE and the hat HERE. I traced the patterns on black and green cardstock paper, cut them out and then used a craft knife to cut the inside of the pattern out as pictured below.

Then I cut out a piece of clear contact paper, peeled it back and put the patterns on the sticky contact paper. My daughter then had fun filling the inside of the witch head and hat with green and black tissue paper squares.


I put another sheet of contact paper (sticky side down) onto the witch head and hat to seal them together and then cut off the excess contact paper. Next we put the facial features on the witch. Here's a picture tutorial of how I made the nose.


We glued large wiggly eyes and the nose onto the witch and then I arranged the hair how I wanted it on her head. You can glue each individual strand down if you want or you can be lazy like me and just put a piece of tape across her forehead. Ha! The hat covers it up anyways. (Just a little hint: I made my orange paper strips for the hair by putting an orange piece of paper through one of those old school shredders. I had a neighbor that had one of those shredders so it made it really easy and cut so much prep time out of this craft.)


Once you have her eyes, nose and hair on you are ready to tape or glue the black hat on her head.


For the mouth, you can either use red glitter glue...

Or you could use a strip of red paper.
 
It's been so fun having the witch hanging up in our window. Such a fun Halloween decoration!
