Well its officially Winter here and I mean cold, rainy and absolutely NO sun at all...none!!!
I made these easy Sun Catchers a few weeks ago when we did actually have sun and thought I would keep them to share when it was really miserable here, so I could cheer myself up too...
They are so easy to make and look really pretty and cheerful hanging against the window...
What you need:
a head pin
a large glass or faceted bead
pliers (not pictured)
Following my picture instructions you cant go wrong.
What to do:
Thread the faceted bead onto the headpin and secure it.
Using the pliers form a loop at one end of the memory wire.
Thread the large bead on and close the loop.
Thread beads onto the memory wire
Form a loop at the end
Thread string or wire through the end loop, and hang the sun catcher up.
I made a girly pink one for the kids' room, using plastic beads and its just as sparkly in the sun...
I love how they bounce around and catch the sun, so cute and so cheerful.
