picture frame
clear glass from frame
3 or more different colors of stained glass
glass cutter
grout
sponge
cloth
glass cleaner
fabric paint

Steps:

1. Remove the clear glass from the frame.

3. Glue cut pieces of stained glass (in a design) on the clear glass shape. Wait overnight for stained glass to dry.

4. Apply grout to the top of the clear glass shape with stained glass glued on top of it. Wait 5 minutes for grout to dry/settle. Wipe away excess grout with a mostly dry sponge. Let dry overnight.
