DIY Earth Day Suncatchers


Earth Day is tomorrow, so in celebration of loving our mother Earth I found a really cool craft here on Pinterest that you make World Shaped Suncatchers out of tissue paper and contact paper! My son and I had so much fun doing this and its really simple
What You’ll Need:
  • 1 sheet blue or green construction paper
  • Clear contact paper
  • Blue and green tissue paper
  • Hole punch
  • String or raffia
  • Large container lid



Instructions:
Use the bottom of a large container lid as a template for your circle.  Trace a large circle onto your construction paper. Cut out the circle from the construction paper and then cut out an inner circle so there is about a ½ inch ring remaining. Using the same circle template, trace and then cut 2 circles from the clear contact paper. Peel the paper off of the first circle of contact paper and place on a table, sticky side up. Carefully place the construction paper ring on top. Cut blue and green tissue paper into small squares and then arrange on the sticky contact paper to create a “globe” design. Once you are happy with your design, remove the paper from the second piece of contact paper and place it, sticky side down, on top of the tissue paper.  Trim excess contact paper. Punch a hole in the top of the globe and tie a loop with string so the globe can hang.
