Shamrock Suncatcher



Welcome the beginning of spring to your home with this easy and fun shamrock suncatcher for your window.  This craft is great for any age.  Kids love using water to watch their design transform into a beautiful watercolored masterpiece!

Materials needed:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Washable markers
  • Spray bottle with water
  • Glue stick
  • Paper towel
  • White coffee filter

Step one: Using your markers, draw whatever design you'd like on the coffee filter.

Step two: Place the filter on a paper towel and squirt with water to watch the design change. The best part!

Step three: While the filter is drying, fold your construction paper in half, and then in half again.

Step four: Cut out a heart using the inner corner of the folded paper as the heart's point.  This will create your shamrock cutout.

Step five: Cut around the heart cutout to make the shamrock frame.  Choose whatever thickness you prefer.

Step six:  Once the filter is dry, glue the shamrock frame onto the coffee filter.

Step five: Trim around the edges to get rid of the excess filter.

Step six: Hang in a window with good sunlight to decorate your home with good luck for spring!
