Terrific Textured Yarn Easter Suncatcher Tutorial
Hands up if you’re a craft supplies hoarder like me? I hate to throw anything away incase I can find a good use for it one day! I always have a big supply of yarn scraps that I can’t bear to part with. They’re too short for a knitting project but perfect for these Terrific Textured Yarn Easter Suncatchers!
We’ve used this suncatcher idea to make an egg shaped window display for Easter but the same method could be used in any shaped suncatcher you like. How about textured yarn flower suncatchers for Spring or a textured yarn bumble bee suncatchers for Summer?
Supplies To Make Yarn Easter Sun Catchers
How To Make A Terrific Textured Yarn Easter Suncatcher
Prepare for your Easter suncatcher craft session by cutting your yarn scraps into manageable sized pieces. Sectioned trays make it easier for the kids to keep the colours separate and find what they are looking for easily. This set of six trays is great value and oh so useful!
I have lots of transparent sheets from bygone teaching days when overhead projectors were widely used so I used those as a base for our Easter suncatchers. I doubt many of you have those to hand but don’t worry, you can still buy cheap packs of write on transparency sheets. They usually come in packs of 100 so one pack goes a long way. They’re perfect for window art.
Keep adding yarn until the whole Easter egg shape is covered.
Kids can have creative fun experimenting with different methods to make their suncatchers. They might like to lay the yarn on randomly, in stripes or even very ordered stripes like the photo above.
There’s no right or wrong way so it’s a great Easter craft for kids of all ages and abilities to enjoy.
We even had a go at making a spotty egg adding pink dots first.
When you’ve finished designing your yarn Easter suncatcher leave it aside to dry for a few hours or overnight.
Once your glue is completely dry you can cut out your suncatcher, flip it over and use sticky tape to attach a hanging thread of yarn.
These Textured Yarn Easter Suncatchers look so lovely hanging in the window or on an Easter themed wishing tree too.
We hope you have lots of fun making your own suncatchers. Will you make Easter egg shapes or something different? We love hearing how you get on, leave a comment below, come and chat on Facebook or sign up to our email updates.
