Supplies for Christmas Tree Suncatcher
- Tissue paper
- Christmas tree template
- Clear contact paper
- Cricut (optional)
- Black cardstock
- Double-sided tape
- Chunky glitter (optional)
- First, download and print the FREE Christmas tree template then cut. If you have a cutting machine, choose your favorite Christmas tree image in your design space then cut. Set aside.
- Next, allow your child to select the tissue paper colors they want to use to make their suncatcher. Then 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 clear contact paper that is larger than the Christmas tree then peel off the backing. Carefully place your Christmas tree outline on top of the contact paper. Your child will need help with this step.
- Cover the inside of the Christmas tree with the tissue paper pieces.
- Carefully peel off the back of another contact paper and place it on top of the Christmas tree, sticky side down. Smooth it out to get rid of any creases or bubbles. Your child may need help with this step.
- Finally, cut out the Christmas tree suncatcher. Use double-sided tape to stick to a window or sliding glass door.
I hope you get the opportunity to make this craft with your family. This will make the perfect decoration for your home. Your child can choose to make their suncatcher with the traditional Christmas colors or use colorful tissue paper. Allow them to be creative and have fun.
