These suncatchers look so pretty on the window! You can make a collection of them, or just make one and place it in your favorite window spot. These would also look great on a classroom window!

Suncatcher with Pressed Flowers

You can make this a two-part activity, collecting and saving flowers and then creating the suncatcher. City park grasses around playgrounds often have lots of wildflowers that will get cut throughout the spring and summer. Picking some of those wildflowers before they are cut are perfect for this activity.

If you’ve never made your own pressed flowers, it is really easy! See our simple tutorial how to press flowers.

For another way to make these suncatchers, try making a heart shape. We used red, pink and white flowers and made these heart-shaped pressed flower suncatchers.

How to Make a Pressed Flower Suncatcher

1. Start by tracing a small paper plate or bowl two times onto a self laminating sheet.

If you plan to make just 1 suncatcher, you can cut out the circles first. Then use one circle to add on top when you are done.

If you plan to make 2 suncatchers, follow the steps below.

2. Add the pressed flowers to the sticky side of the self laminating sheet.

Add Pressed Flowers to Laminate Paper

Keep adding flowers or leaves until you are happy with the way it looks. You can fill it in really well or leave a lot of space between the flowers, both methods look nice.

3. Add another self laminating sheet on top.

Press firmly down to seal the two sheets together.

4. Cut out the suncatchers.

Cut slightly inside the traced line if you do not want the traced line to be on your suncatcher.

    1. You must use pressed flowers or fresh flowers will go brown. Some pressed leaves or flowers may brown in direct sunlight so keep them placed out of direct sunlight.

  1. Love your site and ideas! I may do the suncatchers with my students for a positive school climate activity and add some words to these!!!

    Hi! I love this idea! I am a former preschool teacher and daycare owner, and now have great nieces and nephews as well as my grandbabies at home with me quite a bit. I am always looking for new craft ideas to surprise their parents with for special occasions. I think I am going to try this one, but with a twist…I am going to try to put a small photo in the center of flowers, and put the entire project in a 5×7 picture frame. I will try to remember post a pic.
