This flower suncatcher craft for kids uses nature’s palette (flowers and leaves) and sticky contact paper in the perfect circle frame. An easy summer craft and so beautiful!

One of our favorite suncatchers to create is the flower suncatcher with contact paper, flower petals and leaves. (And this is coming from someone who has a well-documented obsession with suncatchers and stained glass art projects!)

Here’s a video showing Nature Suncatchers in action! And keep scrolling to see how ours turned out, as well as some other ideas for suncatchers for kids.

A Flower Suncatcher Craft for Kids

Recently, we made our favorite flower suncatchers again, using paper plates as the frames (it just works so well!) and strung them into a garland to hang across the window.

But the best part was what we did differently this time. We used the flowers and leaves to create faces, birds, butterflies, and more.

After Maia made a flower fairy on one of the Easter egg suncatchers this past spring, it was only natural that we’d want to revisit the idea.

We all thoroughly enjoyed using the colors, patterns, and shapes of the flower petals and leaves to make fun images to hang in the window. And I’m thinking we’ll have to try our hand at these again soon with Autumn leaves and flowers.

I wrote up a whole tutorial for you on how to make this flower suncatcher craft and garland (with lots of photos!) over on Let’s Lasso the Moon, my friend Zina’s site.

I encourage you to go check it out!
