Rhinestone Suncatcher

Download Activity Guide

Create this beautiful sun-catcher to hang in your window. This decorative craft will bring a rainbow of colour to your day as light bounces from one rhinestone to the next. 

  • Step 1Using a whiteboard marker, draw shapes on a piece of acetate (these shapes will become the body of your sun-catcher).
  • Step 2Carefully cut out the shapes. Use a tissue to wipe off the marker.
  • Step 3Think about the order in which you would like to hang your shapes. The top two shapes in your sun-catcher need a hole punched in the top and bottom. The bottom shape needs only one hole punched at the top.
  • Step 4Cover each shape with rhinestones. Attach with glue dots. We only decorated one side of our shapes but you could cover both sides of each shape for even more reflection and colour in your sun-catcher.
  • Step 5Cut lengths of yarn to connect the three shapes of your sun-catcher. Cut a final length of yarn to create a hanger at the top of your sun-catcher.
