Instructions For Making a St Patrick’s Day Suncatcher
1. First, print off the template. You can get the template at the bottom of the post on the email form that shows a preview of the template.
Cut out the template and use it to trace around black cardstock.
2. Cut out the shamrock from your black cardstock.
Bend the center slightly to cut out the middle of the template, leaving only the black outline.
Make sure to cut out the bottom stem part too.
3. Then place the shamrock outline onto the sticky side of a piece of contact paper or self-adhesive laminating paper.
4. Cut up your tissue paper into small squares. You can also buy square tissue paper pieces.
Layer the tissue paper squares onto the contact paper or laminating paper. Don’t worry if you go outside of the outline, this will get trimmed off later!
5. Place another piece of self-adhesive laminating paper or contact paper on top of your finished shamrock and press down firmly. Be careful to lay the final sheet on flat so that you do not get any bumps or air bubbles when placing down.
6. Trim around your shamrock. Then use double-sided tape to add to your windows!
Make a green version or a rainbow colored version. Kids can choose any colors!
We love how colorful the rainbow version is too!
We hope you enjoy making these colorful shamrock suncatchers to brighten your windows for St Patrick’s Day!
