Catch the Sun
Jessica over at Barefoot by the Sea Click Here featured her sun catchers a few weeks ago. My boys decided to give this idea a try. They enjoyed it and made four different sun catchers.
What You Need
A pie plate
A glass to set in the center of the pie plate
Bits of nature
Cold temps (we will have plenty of that in Wisconsin this week)
Gather your materials.
Fill your pan with water.
Place your nature, cranberries, orange peel or other fun ideas in your pie plate.
We made ours outside. We used a tin pie plate. We filled the pie plate with water. We set our glass in the middle and then decorated it. We added pine, pine cones and cranberries in our first sun catchers. In the second, we used cranberries and oranges.
We let them sit over night, the next day we popped them out of the tin pie plate.
We pulled our string through the hole and hung our pretty sun catchers up.
Cranberries, pine and pine cones.
Cranberries and oranges.
A fun surprise for us is seeing the birds land on the sun catchers and pick at the berries.
The sun glowing in the sun catcher is beautiful too.
A fun, simple idea to enjoy Winter's beauty.
