How to Make a Beautiful Flower Suncatcher for Kids

butterfly suncatcher craft for kids

We love making suncatchers! It’s such an easy craft that looks beautiful in the sunlight. I like to collect tissue paper from birthday parties or during the holidays. There are so many fun crafts you can make with them. If you’re looking for a beautiful spring craft, check out this flower suncatcher. I have included FREE flower templates to make this craft easier. However, you can also use a Cricut to choose any flower image for this art project. Get all the details below!

Supplies for Flower Suncatcher


  1. First, download and print the FREE flower template. Trace on black cardstock then cut. If you have a cutting machine, choose different flower images in your design space then cut. Set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Cut a piece of contact paper that is larger than the flower then peel off the backing. Carefully place your flower outline on top of the contact paper.
  4. Cover the inside of the flower with the tissue paper pieces. Once finished, your child has the option to add chunky glitter.
  5. Carefully peel off the back of another contact paper and place it on top of the flower, sticky side down. Smooth it out to get rid of any creases or bubbles.
  6. Finally, cut out the flower suncatcher. Use double-sided tape to stick to a window or sliding glass door.
