We love this easy “stained-glass” front door!

This one is made with contact paper and flower petals, and it is the perfect spring flower craft.

Windows, either on their own, or in a door, is our big spot for displaying seasonal changes in art and decoration. During the fall, we use colorful leaves to make a fall leaves stained-glass window, during the winter, we decorate our windows with paper snowflakes, and in February, we hang painted hearts!

But decorating our windows during springtime might be our favorite; these flower stained-glass windows are so gorgeous!

How to Make a Flower Stained-Glass Window


Time needed: 30 minutes


  1. Cut your contact paper

    First, cut your contact paper to fit inside the space you will decorating (window or door frame) and peel off the backing. Sometimes it helps to tape the contact paper to your table or workspace, so it doesn’t curl up.

  2. Add flowers and leaves!

    Next, arrange your flower petals and leaves on the sticky side of the contact paper. You can create flower mandalas and other designs – whatever you’d like!

  3. Attach to the window

    Finally, stick the contact paper to your window or door. Step back and enjoy the beautiful stained glass you’d created!

This is such a perfect way to bring the beautiful colors of spring into your home.

And the best part of this stained-glass door is that you can recreate it any time of year! Maybe in a week or two when these flowers fade, you can create some new flower designs.
