This week, Lillie and I made these stars and hearts sun catchers. The star is perfect for the 4th of July, and the heart will be great for Valentines Day.
I saw this melted bead sun catcher on Pinterest. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=185741.0 I decided to give it a try, but make different shapes for holidays. This crafter used metal pie pans and ceramic plates, but I thought that I could use cookie cutters wrapped in foil.
I used metal cookie cutters and these aluminum cookie tins.
Lillie arranged the plastic beads in the bottom of the aluminum shape.
I needed to build a form for the heart cookie cutter, so I placed the heart on a piece of aluminum foil and wrapped the foil up around the top of the cookie cutter.
After, the beads melted, I let the creations cool while we went outside to play.
After they cooled, I popped them out of the forms. I drilled a small hole in the sun catchers and used fishing line to hang them up.
Here is a list of the Linky parties that I link up to. Thank you to all of the hosts for letting me post my favorite recipes, crafts, money saving ideas and activities for children.
