This Mother’s Day suncatcher craft is the perfect way to thank a Mom and Grandmother with a kid-made colorful craft. (If you love suncatcher crafts, try this one!)
As a mother to young children, one person I think about daily is my mom. She is always there, only a phone call away to offer a shoulder to lean on. She’s given me advice for as long as I can remember.
A mom is someone to celebrate not just on Mother’s Day, but every day!
Creating this suncatcher craft with my kids was a fun way to reflect on how her advice has influenced me as a mother.
My kids and I made our suncatcher craft and talked about how we used items we had on hand and even a few recycled items so that we can save just a small amount of money while making a memorable craft for their grandmother.
This nature sensory bag suncatcher is a frugal way to create with kids, too.
Mother’s Day Suncatcher Craft
To make this suncatcher craft, you’ll need just a few materials:
- Black card stock
- Clear contact paper (affiliate link)
- Tissue paper in different colors (We used recycled tissue paper)
- Glue Stick
How to make this gorgeous Mother’s Day suncatcher:
First, we’re going to start by making the frame for the suncatcher.
Gently fold the black card stock in half, lengthwise. But, don’t crease the paper. (If you do, that’s okay… just try not to so the frame will stay flat.)
Cut a smaller rectangle, creating a 1 inch border.
Next, we’ll create the inside of the suncatcher craft by adding the sticky inside!
Peel the backing from the contact paper and carefully place the card stock border on the sticky side of the contact paper.
Trim excess contact paper around all edges of the border.
And now it’s decorating time! Now the Mother’s Day Suncatcher Craft is going to get pretty!
Simply, cut or tear small squares of several colors of tissue paper.
Place the tissue paper squares on the sticky side of the contact paper, being sure to cover all of the contact paper.
This is the suncatcher part of this craft! The sun will shine through this and it’ll be gorgeous hanging in your window.
Finally, we’ll make this an actual Mother’s Day suncatcher craft by adding some words to say “I Love You Mom”.
Cut the letters from the left over black card stock. You could also use black letter stickers for this part of the Mother’s Day craft.
Using the glue stick, glue the letters over the sun catcher to create a special message for Mom.
Moms will love these Nature Suncatcher Wind Chimes, too.
Saying “Thank You” to my mom with a suncatcher craft is just one way to celebrate mom, not just on Mother’s Day!
