Handmade Heart Suncatcher
My girls and I whipped these up a few weeks ago, and I love the way they catch the sun coming in our back window, so I thought I would share how easy they were to make, with you.
Tissue Paper (Pink, White, Red)
Cardstock or Construction Paper
Yarn or String
Heart Patterns to Trace (we used cookie cutters).
Begin by cutting or tearing tissue paper into small pieces.
Trace and cut varying heart shapes
Apply glue to half of wax paper with a popsicle stick or straw (we couldn’t find a popsicle stick)
your finger if you would like to peel it off later.
Apply tissue paper pieces, overlapping them slightly for variety.
Apply glue to other half of wax paper.
Fold glued portion onto original side.
(It is much easier to handle dry.)
Glue heart shape onto outside of wax paper.
Allow to dry.
Glue matching heart on reverse side.
Hole punch top.
Add yarn/string for hanging.
Fun, simple suncatchers to make with your children or for just plain fun.

She didn’t want to start this project, but then I couldn’t get her to stop.
Hope you enjoyed this fun project and will be by to check out more!
