rose window

     It was while originally searching for information on window stars last spring that I first learned about rose windows. This article explained more about the meaning of the designs.

     Now, with the medieval themed mystery dinner around the corner I have again been googling how to make a rose window. I found a lot of pictures of beautiful rose windows such as this one at Notre Dame Catherdral, but few directions other than crayon melting activities.

     So we are attempting this on our own. First- search for big thin black paper is unsuccessful, so we substituted black foam board. Maybe it will look more like this window:

     Tonight Mitch cut out all the spaces with an X-acto knife. Tomorrow, Heather will cover the spaces that she carefully sketched with kite paper. You can also create a smaller version using construction paper and colored tissue paper.
