Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore! Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.” We are continuing the eerie themes of the season with an elegant new design, featuring the iconic bird from Poe’s most popular poem. Gather your supplies, and make your own stained glass raven.
I have been creating “stained glass” bird designs since February, when I lucked into this new technique of printing on vellum. Since then, I’ve created three lovely stained glass bird designs that bring immense joy to my amateur birdwatching soul!
When I was brainstorming Halloween designs, I thought it would be fun to continue with my bird collection. And what better feathered friend to feature than the raven?
To make this project, all you need is:
Note: if you’re planning on utilizing Cricut’s “print then cut” feature to do this project, make sure to ungroup all fo the layers first; then select everything, besides the “outline” layer, and hit flatten.
Once everything is printed and cut out, all you need to do is attach your vellum layer to your cardstock detail piece with a little hot glue—easy peasy!
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other Halloween freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting bringing this stained glass raven project to life. I hope you are having as much fun crafting during this Halloween season as I am!
