Sunflower Suncatcher Craft Supplies:



  • Contact paper (sticky back plastic)
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Marker or pen
  • Nature treasures


Sunflower Suncatcher Craft Instructions:



Before starting this sunflower craft have fun outside looking for nature treasures! 



STEP 1: Get all your supplies ready.



Prepare the surface you'll be working on and gather all your materials. To start, you need to take the contact paper and trace out two squares about two inches wider than the diameter of the embroidery hoop you've picked to work with and adjust the measurements. For example, we used a four-inch hoop for this suncatcher, so we cut two 6" x 6" squares.

STEP 2: Make your sticky canvas with contact paper and embroidery hoop.



Carefully, peel the back from one of the contact paper squares. Make it fit into your embroidery hoop, making sure you put the sticky side up. It would be best if you also kept the outer hoop very loose when you fit the contact paper to avoid sticking.

STEP 3: Make your sunflower design.



Now it's time for some magic! Take the sunflower (or whatever nature treasure you've chosen for you suncatcher) and place them on the contact paper, sticky side up, in any pattern you like.

STEP 4: Place the second contact paper piece on top.



Once you are happy with your design, it's time to remove the hoop's top ring. Do this carefully, then peel the backing from the second square of contact paper and place it face down on top of your design, making sure to press firmly to set in place.

STEP 5: Finalise sunflower suncatcher craft!



Now, for the final step, all you need to do is replace the top ring of your hoop and tighten. Trim off any excess contact paper from the hoop's back.

And... you're all set to hang up this fabulous sunflower suncatcher in the window and display for everyone to enjoy.
