Here Comes The Sun Little Darling

Passing Notes Today:  Guest Mrs. Fallon and Mrs. Kelly

Hello -

I'm happy today to have my sister-in-law, Mrs. Fallon, guesting with us!  In addition to being an awesome SIL, she is also a fantastic mom, wife, crafter, cook, party planner and gift giver.  Her suncatcher craft is perfect for "little things" week because it is quick, easy, fun and will help bring a little sunshine into your lives.  And let's face it, we could all use a little sunshine right now!




Suncatcher Craft
1. Gather Materials - You will need clear contact paper, tissue paper and scissors.  (Pattern to trace is optional)

2.  Cut your tissue paper into squares (depending on the age of the kids).

3.  Cut a piece of contact paper and peel it so that the sticky side is up.  *Tip/trick - once you cut the paper, roll it the opposite way to help it lie flat before you take the backing off.

 4.  Place your pieces of tissue all over your paper to create an entire sheet of tissue pieces.

 5.  Once your sheet is complete, take a second piece of contact paper and press it over the tissue sheet to seal it.  Smooth it out.

6.  Trace whatever object you would like.  We found coloring pages of flowers on the internet and used them for templates.  You could also just try to freehand if you are Mrs. Gosling.

 7.  Cut out your suncatcher.

8.  Tape your suncatcher to the window.

9.  Admire your crafting skills.  I told my nephew to look at his work and he was having none of my charade.  He is smirking in the pic below.

Then my daughter joined in on the fun.  I love the final products and I love how much fun the kids had.  It was an easy project and it perfect for spring.  Also, it's great because it's adaptable.  I think Mrs. Williams may have to do a suncatcher haystack for Halloween this year.

Note from Mrs. Gosling:  Let the sunshine in!  We make these too and we think that they are the best project for all different age groups.  Maybe someday we can all get together and "suncatch" together.  Chai anyone?

Note from Mrs. Williams:  Mrs. Kelly - I can't wait to put my boys to work on this craft so that they can brighten our windows.  Thanks to your sister-in-law for sharing!
