You will need:
Coloured tissue paper
Something circular to draw around (like a plate)
Contact paper or self adhesive laminating sheets
Place the plate (or circular object) on the construction paper and trace around the edge. Cut out the circle and then cut a smaller circle on the inside so that you end up with a frame.
Tear up the tissue paper into small pieces. Peel the back off of the self adhesive laminating sheet and firmly press the paper frame onto the sticky side. Press the small pieces of coloured tissue paper onto the sticky side and in the middle of the frame until the frame is completely filled.
Carefully cut around the edge of the frame, cut off any overlapping pieces of tissue paper. Now your “stained glass” is ready to hang in a window where the sun will shine through it. You can either tape it straight to the window, or you can tape a piece of yarn onto the back to act as a hanger. Take care that the yarn does not show through the tissue paper (attach it to the edges of the frame).
