Sun Suncatcher Supplies Needed:
Sun Suncatcher Tutorial
First, gather up your supplies and print out your sun template.
Next, cut two sheets of contact paper and remove the backing from one of them. After you’ve done that, carefully lay it upside down (sticky part up) on top of your printed sun template.
The template is used as a guide. I would encourage taping your contact paper to a surface so your sun doesn’t move underneath it.
Then start laying your cut out tissue paper. We decided on two inch-ish strips of yellow and orange tissue paper, but you can get as creative as you want. You can even have a rainbow sun!
Try not to overload the outer layer with tissue paper though. You’ll want to still see the sun’s outline under your tissue paper.
Then peel off the other piece of contact paper. Carefully lay it on top of your sun (sticky side down this time). It is okay if the pieces don’t match up exactly. You will be cutting the edges in the following steps.
Once your second layer of contact paper is on, take your large sharpie and trace the sun. Aren’t you glad you can still see it?
Now it is time to cut out the sun suncatcher. If you have younger kids, you might want to help them with this step.
Finally, display your new suncatcher sun proudly on your favorite window in the house!
Whatever you opt to use this suncatcher crafts with, I’m certain the suncrafts option will be one of the most popular suncatcher options you make this summer.
