::sun catchers::

This idea comes straight out of FamilyFun.  

Take 20 gauge wire and wrap it around a pencil to make a hanging loop.

Cut the wire to about 2 feet long.

Thread on beads and bend the wire around the bead to hold it in place.

Then just bend the finished creation into the shape you want.  We thought that we would use the spice jar to mold our creation around but Lily liked "free style" better.  Shocker.

   20 Gauge flora wire     $2.99
   Beads                   $5.99
                           Total   = $9.00
     Tons left over of both, so we can use the extra for many other projects.     

Total time:
   About five minutes each

  1. I'm interested in making these, but I'm still working through how to hang them. What did you do?
