The stained glass windows in Gothic cathedrals were created to tell religious stories. Each window was a scene of the life of a saint. The colorful glass windows were lit up by the sun, which made the scene glow inside the cathedral.
A rose window is a round stained glass window used in Gothic architecture. The glass pattern is repeated to make a symmetrical design.
The rose window was the inspiration for this stained glass ornament craft. Click “stained glass ornament” to get the pattern.
*If you want to make this craft with younger students, use only 2 of the circles and one piece of tissue paper to make a flat ornament.
