Jeweled Suncatcher - Kid's Craft


While in the hospital at the Skilled Nursing Unit, my mother was able to participate in various craft activities.  One that she made was a jeweled suncatcher.  I liked the way it looked and how easy it was to make, so we purchased the supplies to make more at home.  My younger nieces and nephews even made a few.

Supplies Needed:
 
Icepick
Tacky Glue
Small Paintbrush
Assorted Craft Jewels
Blank CDs
Ribbon

Directions:
 
Using an icepick, poke a small hole through a blank CD. 
 
Apply the Tacky Glue on the CD and use the paintbrush to thoroughly coat it with the glue.
 
Place the craft jewels all over the CD.  They don't have to be in any certain pattern, but try to fill in the gaps so no glue shows through.
 
Wait for one side to dry, then turn the CD over to do the same with the other side.
 
Take a piece of ribbon and pull it through the hole that was created with the icepick.
 
Hang the suncatcher up in a window and watch the jewels shine.

Very pretty! That would be a good way to reuse cds that are too scratched to play anymore.

That's a fun idea! Maybe my girls can do a fall or Thanksgiving themed one!

What a pretty and fun craft to do. My daughter always like to use Assorted Craft Jewels when she was young and designing different crafts.
