I started making some sun catchers a few days ago. First you need white school glue, some plastic lids (mine are Pringles lids), and glitter and/or sequins. I found some cute heart sequins and used those. Then you fill the lids with white glue and add your glitter and sequins to it. Let it dry completely. Mine took about 4 or 5 days to dry. Then pop them out of the lids.
My little experiment was to see if they would work with a die cut.
It worked. So I die cut hearts out of all 6 disks that I had made.
I am saving the circle ones for when inspiration hits.
It was night when I made them, but you can see that the light does come through them.
Then I just punched holes in the top and bottom of the hearts, added pink string, and hung them up.
Now I have sparkly Valentine's sun catchers for my home, and it did not cost me anything.
I also made another crochet heart hot pad using 2 strands of red acrylic yarn.
