Tips to making any suncatcher with tissue paper
The base to making a tissue paper suncatcher is the contact paper.
- Make sure you have clear contact paper. Each project only needs about 12 inches of the roll cut out per project.
Drawing on the grid paper side of the contact paper is a helpful guide when making these suncatcher craft projects.
- This allows for the kids to show their creativity and showcase their drawing skills.
- With younger children, I would suggest drawing the shapes for them.
- For those that are letting the kids draw, remind them that the designs should not be too intricate. The tissue paper can be cut or torn into pretty small pieces, but do not come out as precise.
Remove the contact paper from the grid paper backing. I then place the grid paper with the drawing face up, and place the non-sticky side of the contact paper over the top.
If you are finding the edges pulling up, then use a few clean rocks or weights of some sort to hold your project in place.
Use your creativity when placing the tissue paper onto the contact paper. The contact paper is sticky, so once you place it, its most likely going to stay there. What make tissue paper fun for this Easter suncatcher craft project is that you can layer the paper to give it different shades and colors like a true stain glass suncatcher.I find that cutting the tissue paper into squares is fun and easy for little hands to place and give your project to be filled with lots of color. The smaller the tissue paper the more colors they can get into their projects.

Once the tissue are all laid as they want, hold the two pieces together and cut along the line. How to hang the Easter suncatcher craft.
- You can remove a piece of the tissue paper at the top of your project. This is the easiest way, and because the tissue paper is sticky, it will stick right onto the window.
- You can add a piece of tape and tape it to the window
- If you have a suction cup hook then you could simply punch a hole with a hole punch at the top and then hook the suncatcher on the hook.
