Wednesday craft day # 011: Suncatchers (sun catchers)

These slightly gloomy days are not always cheerful. That is why we thought it would be a good idea to bring the sun into your home. Not literally, of course! For the crafting tip of the week, we’ll teach you how to make sun catchers. Because after rain comes sunshine of course 😉

Necessities

  • Flowers and / or leaves
    ➪ place it in a book / newspaper and stack it with other books
    ➪ You can use them after at least 3 days, preferably 1 week
  • Translucent adhesive film
    ➪ alternative: photo frame with double glass
  • Scissors
  • Piece of string
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Books

Do you like symmetry or do you prefer something abstract? No problem, you are free to design your sun catcher yourself! 😎

Preparation

  1. Unscrew your hoop and separate it into two hoop earrings
  2. Cut two squares in the translucent adhesive film
    • a little bit bigger than your hoop
  3. Design a flower pattern for your sun catcher
  4. Pull the back of 1 of the squares from the adhesive film
    • place it adhesive side up
  5. Place the inner hoop on top and carefully arrange your flowers in the center of the hoop
  6. Remove the hoop
  7. Now take the back of your second square and place it sticky side down on your design
  8. Place your design over the inner hoop
  9. Place the outer hoop on top and hoop it in place
  10. Cut the foil off the outside of the hoop
  11. Tie a string at the top

READY! 😊

Hang the sun catchers in front of a window, the light from the sun will do the rest! ☀️
