DIY Suncatcher Crafts

Tissue paper suncatchers are simple to make and can created to match any color or theme! Suncatchers always remind me of stained-glass windows. They are so pretty and such an easy way to brighten up any space. Suncatchers are a great camp activity as the supply list is a short one.

We love hanging up suncatchers on our windows and glass doors. Even on a rainy day, they still give off a bit of color and cheer.

Follow the steps below to make your own suncatchers! Feel free to swap out different colors or different shapes than we used. There are so many possibilities!
