Fall Leaf Suncatcher

Fun Fall Suncatcher Craft
The Process

Suncatchers are such a fun and easy, hands-on project. Lorelai always enjoys doing them. So, when I replenished our tissue paper collection from the pieces found in her birthday gift bags, I knew just what we had to make first. A fall leaf suncatcher! The template itself is old. We did this fun craft project last year and the template worked out great for this project.

Materials We Used:

  • 2 Pieces of Cardstock Paper
  • Scissors
  • Wax Paper
  • Glue
  • Tissue Paper (we used orange and yellow)

The process is so easy, here are the instructions:

  1. Print out 2 identical sheets of the same leaf template.
  2. Cut out the INSIDE of each leaf, so that you will have a little “window” to create the suncatcher. Do this to both sheets.
  3. Cut out 2 sheets of wax paper that will cover the leaf hole. Glue down.
  4. Cut out small squares of tissue paper. The easiest way to do this is to fold a sheet of tissue paper in half a bunch of times.
  5. Add glue over the (wax paper covered) leaf hole and have your child glue down the pieces of tissue paper.
  6. Glue down the other sheet of wax paper, so that the tissue paper is sandwiched between two pieces of wax paper.
  7. Glue down the top template, printed side up.
  8. Lastly, trim down the paper as much as you want! I just cut off the excess on the bottom and the printed words on top.
  9. Voila, a beautiful suncatcher!

  1. Thank you so much for all the wonderful craft ideas. I am as un-crafty as they get, but you make it so easy! I used to spend $$ for my son to take an art class at Gymboree. Now we stay home and work on things while my baby naps. It is a great way to spend one on one time with my 3 year old.

    We did this sun catcher today and it turned out great!
