Project Details

Watch as the sun makes your homemade suncatcher light up in the window.


  1. Making The Frame: Draw the shape of your suncatcher onto a black piece of construction paper and cut it out. Then trace the shape onto another piece of black construction paper and cut it out. Cut the centers out of your shapes leaving a 1″ frame around the edges.

  2. Making the Center: Cut your shape out of wax paper. Cut the wax paper 1/4″ smaller then the outside edge of your shape and glue it onto one of the frame pieces. Now cut your tissue pieces and glue them onto the wax paper. After you’ve added all of your tissue pieces glue on the other frame piece.

  3. Finishing Touches: If you choose, add some sparkle to your suncatcher with Spectra® Glitter or gemstones & jewels and let dry.
