Flower Suncatchers

Flower Suncatchers

Description

Springtime fun! In this video, we will be making beautiful sun catchers using real flowers! You can use whole flowers, flower petals and even leaves and grass if you’d like. Then all you need is tape, a paper plate (any color and size) and contact paper.  It’s a great springtime project to enjoy together as a family.

Use as a perfect gift for someone in the family or to just hang on your own window to admire!
