Halloween Suncatchers

So these are from last Halloween but I thought I would add them in this year since I wasn’t a very good blogger last year with a newborn and a 2 year old I kind of always had my hands full, literally! We really love making suncatchers at our house. Well, that is everyone but my husband, but that’s another story! Suncatchers are one of the easiest crafts to create. I bought a roll of contact paper and have been able to use it for many things including a multitude of suncatchers. Last year we made a ghost, spider and a pumpkin suncatcher using black construction paper and white and orange ripped up tissue paper. Super easy and so much fun!

I think for the spider I folded the piece of black paper in half and just made sure to make the inside of the spider large enough for Chloe to be able to add tissue paper to. She wanted to stick to the orange tissue paper so above is her orange spider.

The pumpkin was the first one we made that day. I can tell because it is the one with the most tissue paper. After the first one gets covered she became less enthused to do the other ones. Again I just folded the black construction paper in half and made the center large enough for her to be able to add tissue paper to.

We also made a ghost to go with the Halloween theme. They are fun to make and she loved pulling in the driveway and seeing her ghost, pumpkin and spider in the window!
