DIY Suncatcher

Do you remember making suncather’s as a child? Maybe you played with Shrinky Dinks? Suncatcher’s are never out of style, yet they add so much style to any porch or window they are hung on. We show you how you can create your own suncatcher’s for every window in your home or wherever you want to display them

Things Needed:

Round cake pans in various sizes

Cheap plastic beads (you can get these at a dollar store)

An oven

A drill



Step 1: Layer your plastic beads in your cake pans. You do not have to be careful about the colors, unless of course you want to. (Do not line your pans with anything besides the beads.)

Step 2: Melt the plastic beads in an oven that was preheated to 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

Step 3: Remove your cake pans from the oven and allow the beads to cool thoroughly.

Step 4: Tip the cake pans upside down and flip out the suncatchers.

Step 5: Drill a small hole in the top of each suncather using your drill.

Step 6: Insert string or twine through the small hole you drilled and tie in a knot.

Step 7: Hang your suncatchers.

DIY suncathers are fun and easy to make. Why not allow your children or grandchildren to get in on the action and create a suncather as well.
