DIY Suncatchers with Trefoil!


Suncatchers are a great arts and crafts project for the kids. They add brightness and colour to any home! You can also have some real fun and make sun catchers with different colour schemes to match each holiday!

You will need:


  1. Arrange the gems on the clear plastic lid. Feel free to make patterns or initials of your kiddies names.
  2. Once the kiddies are happy with the pattern the gems are laid in, have them squeeze Amos Craft Glue all around the gems. Ensure the entire plastic lid is covered in clear glue in order to ensure the gems stay in place.
  3. Place the suncatcher in a safe place to dry for a few hours – it may take a few days for the suncatcher to be completely dry if you live in a humid area.
  4. Once the glue is totally dry separate the glue from the lid.
  5. Use a thick pin to poke a hole in an area of the glue that doesn’t have gems in it. Don’t make the hole too big, create a hole that is just big enough for the twine/yarn/ribbon to fit through.
  6. Thread the twine/yarn/ribbon through the hole and tie at the ends- this allows you to hang the suncatcher up.
  7. Place your suncatcher in a room that receives a lot of sunlight and let the magic begin!
