DIY suncatchers are an easy and fun project both kids and adults will love! I’ll show you how to make your own in today’s post.

The kids and I always love trying out new craft projects and techniques, and these DIY suncatchers are no exception!

We made these a couple weeks ago, and we’re about to pull the kit back out again to make a few more. They’d also make great gifts for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day!

Full DIY card is below, but here are a few pics of the process.

We were sent a Plaid Gallery Glass Beginner Suncatcher Kit, which included all of the below…

You’ll use your Liquid Leading to outline your design, let it dry, then color it in with your Window Color.

My kids are 6 and 10, and they both were easily able to make their own suncatchers.

The patterns have numbers on them that correspond to the Window Colors. You can follow those if you wish, OR do what my daughter did and choose your own colors!

DIY suncatchers are an easy and fun project both kids and adults will love! I'll show you how to make your own in today's post.

Instructions

  1. Choose your design, and place the Leading Blank on top of it (smooth side of the blank facing up).
  2. Use the Liquid Leading to outline your design. Dry completely (we let ours dry overnight).
  3. Use the Window Color to fill in your design. The numbers on each pattern correspond to a Window Color number.
  4. Allow to dry completely. Carefully and slowly peel suncatcher from Leading Blank and apply to desired surface.

Notes

To save and reuse suncatchers, place on a plastic wrap covered piece of cardboard. Before storing, cover with another piece of plastic wrap.

To eliminate air bubbles from your design, use a toothpick and run in through the Window Color while wet.
