Who's ready for bright colours?
Over the weekend, we decided to create some stained-glass suncatchers to hang in our windows to brighten up our view. These were so simple to create and the results were so exciting!
What You'll Need
- dried leaves and/or pressed flowers (optional)
- pencil sharpener
- wax paper
- regular paper
- popsicle sticks (coloured can be fun)
How It's Made
Measure wax paper squares the length and width of the popsicle sticks and cut out.
Place a square of wax paper onto a sheet of regular paper and add your dried flowers or leaves on top.
With a pencil sharpener, create shavings from whichever crayon colours you want to use and sprinkle them on top.
Lay a square of wax paper over top.
Now for the adult around: Place a regular sheet of paper on top and iron the square underneath (on low) until the wax has melted.
Finally glue on your popsicle-stick frame.
It will then look something like this!
Continue creating until your rainbow is complete!
Hang these little sun catchers in your window and admire the bits of beauty that speak of spring.
