Supplies for Heart Suncatcher
- Tissue paper (different shades of pink)
- Black cardstock
- Clear contact paper
- Heart template
- Chunky glitter (optional)
- Cricut (optional)
- Double-sided tape
- First, download, print and cut the free heart template. Trace on black cardstock then cut. You must also cut out the inside of the heart so you are left with a black heart outline. Set aside.
- Next, cut the tissue paper into small pieces. If you’re not comfortable with your child using scissors, let them tear the tissue paper by hand.
- Cut a piece of contact paper that is larger than the heart then peel off the backing. Carefully place your heart outline on top of the contact paper.
- Cover the inside of the heart with the tissue paper pieces. Once finished, your child has the option to add chunky glitter.
- Carefully peel off the back of another contact paper and place it on top of the heart, sticky side down. Smooth it out to get rid of any creases or bubbles.
- Finally, cut out the heart suncatcher. Use double-sided tape to stick to a window or sliding glass door.
I hope you enjoy making this quick and easy craft with your kids. They can get really creative with this art project. Use different color tissue paper or change the color of the cardstock.
