This DIY Sun Catcher Mobile is the perfect craft project for Easter. My little boy has been inside the house sick for the past few days. I wanted to do something to cheer him up.
We decided to make a Suncatcher Mobile. I had a few bags of Pony Beads that I had recently bought.
My son chose cookie cutters to use for the Sun Catcher. He picked out a butterfly, a duck, flowers, bunnies, and Easter eggs.
Supplies NEEDED for A DIY Sun Catcher Mobile

- Pan (to set cookie cutters on)
How to Make A DIY Sun Catcher Mobile
UPDATE (2018): Due to some comments I have been getting, I would suggest making the sun catchers outdoors on the gas grill.
Just let them thoroughly melt for about 15-20 minutes.
Also, some readers suggest using a toaster oven outside. Please make sure when you make the sun catchers, you stay away from them until they finish melting.
I appreciate all the comments and advice I have been getting concerning cooking the sun catchers indoors.
6. Use a drill to put holes in the beads then string together with fishing twine.
Last, hang up your Sun Catcher and enjoy it. We were disappointed the sun wasn’t out when we hung our suncatcher.
Of course, we still love our Sun Catcher! I hope you like it, too.
You could also make an extra DIY Sun Catcher Mobile give as a gift to someone for Easter.

Did you have any leakage around the cookie cutters?

Hi Kelly – no I didn’t get any leakage.Make sure your cookie cutters aren’t warped though. And, don’t use copper cookie cutters because they stick. Hope this helps. Kim
Thank you!! He had so much fun making the sun catcher. It was easy to make the
hardest part was stringing it together. Thank you I hope he feels better soon, too.
