It’s your time to shine… and decorate your windows with these Cosmic Sun Catchers. I made mine with using contact paper, but you can also make these using the traditional glue/water mixture and wax paper. If you’re using our method, here’s what you need:
- tissue paper
- contact paper
- Cosmic Sun Catchers Activity
Step 1: Print out the template that you’ll be using. For my example, I’ll be making the Sun.
Step 2: Tape the template to a flat surface and roll out contact paper, sticky side up. Then tape down the edges.
Step 3: Cut out tissue paper into small squares and cover the entire template area.
Step 4: Place another piece of contact paper onto the sun catcher, this time sticky-side down.
Step 5: Using the template as a guide, trim your sun catcher.
Step 6: Attach the eyes and mouth (For some characters, it’s easier to draw a mouth on with a marker). I also decided to cut out red triangles for the sun’s outline and sprinkle on some red “solar flares”.
Ta-daaa! Use double-stick tape to attach your creation to the window. Our template pack includes four stars, the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon. Craft them all to create a celestial scene!
