45 Simple Stained Glass Patterns

The colorful patterns of stained glass earned it a special place in the world of art and architecture.

However, with time it has been accepted as a form of DIY craft as crafters can now avail all the necessary supplies for creating stained glass art pieces themselves.

    Hi,
    Can you suggest where I can buy the glass for these projects? Home Depot has them in bigger dimensions. Any place where I can get them in smaller sizes?
