Spring is coming so quickly! As well as the beautiful Easter holiday full of pastel-y colors, flowers, and warm weather! In Utah, the trees have already started blooming. Every yard in my neighborhood has a beautiful tree with purple, pink or white flowers.
With Spring and Easter right by each other I wanted to do a fun Easter and Spring craft. This Easter Egg Suncatcher was the best for celebrating the first day of Spring and Easter that is coming up very shortly!
I got the idea from the Artful Parent. She has tons of cool crafts for kids.
I had a brilliant idea to go on a walk and look for all the pretty flowers for this suncatcher craft….but that didn’t happen. I was running out of time to do it before Easter, so we ran to Home Depot and bought the cheapest flowers we could find.
This project is perfect for kids! It is one of the more kid-friendly projects I have done. This will definitely be a Spring/Easter tradition for us every year now!
The supplies in this project are so simple and cheap. I always love a cheap craft project.
Contact Paper (it’s a sticky sided clear type of paper. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $3)
Washi tape (I got mine at the Dollar Store)
Such simple supplies for a pretty project! I love it. Now, lets get started.
How to make Spring flower Easter egg suncathers!
1. Get all your flowers off the stems
Since we bought our flowers from the store, we had to take the petals off the stems. It is a perfect project for kids!
2. Draw a large egg shape on the non sticky side of the contact paper
3. Put contact paper with sticky side up and start putting your flowers on.
Kids love this part too! (Notice the sharpie egg shape in the pics below)
4. Cut another piece of contact paper and put it on top of the other one.
Another great job for kids. Although if you are OCD and have to have it perfect and NOT bubbly. I suggest skipping out on the kids helping on this part.
5. Cut around the edge of the egg
Make sure to leave a little bit of extra room to put your washi tape on the edge.
6. Use washi tape to go around the edges of the egg
The washi tape made our eggs POP even more. I definately suggest not to skip this step as it adds more color to your craft!
7. Hang (or tape) your suncatchers in the window
(NOTE: Our flower suncatcher have been in the window for almost a week now. The flowers are starting to lose a little bit of their color, but they are still beautiful! But I am sure within the next week the flowers will have completely lost their color and died.)
That is it! I hope you enjoyed this KID-FRIENDLY craft for the Spring/Easter season. Do you have Spring blooming around you yet? Or is it still winter for you?
Please feel free to share your Easter/Spring Suncatcher you made!
