Stained Glass Snowflake 

Foil (wrap a sticky ¼” wide silvered tape around all glass pieces), solder, add hangers, and clean a snowflake glass window hanging using precut glass, bevels, jewels, and globs.  Beginners choose from over a dozen patterns that are around 6” in diameter or less.  Stained glass experienced students choose from an additional 6 patterns that are up to 8” in diameter.  Tool rental and materials included. These make great holiday gifts!   No glass experience required, but good close up vision and hand dexterity are required.   (You must be able to wrap a ¼” wide sticky piece of tape evenly around a 3/8” diameter round piece of glass.) These make great hangings for all times of the year (fall, winter, spring, summer, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and 4th of July).  Learn how to make one, and you’ll be making many more on your own!
