This Valentine's Day Sun Catcher is made from a recycled Pringles Chip can lid. You can recycle any red tissue paper left over from Christmas also. If you have never used decoupage, here is a link to:
Decoupage for Beginners
-washed a dried plastic Pringles Chip Can Lid
-pink and red tissue paper scraps
-foam brush, small
-versa-tool to melt a hole for hanger
-small suction cup hanger
STEP 1: With the heated tip of your versa-tool, melt a tiny hole in the rim for the suction cup hanger to fit through. Let cool.
STEP 2: Cut your tissue paper scraps into small pieces.
STEP 3: Brush a thin coat of decoupage onto the inside of the plastic lid.
STEP 4: Lay your tissue paper on the decoupage, one at a time, covering each with a second thin coate of decoupage, carefully. Use the non-bristle end of your brush to gently push the tissue paper into the sides.
STEP 5: Let dry. Brush a second thin coat onto your tissue paper if needed. Let dry.
STEP 6: Insert your suction cup hook into the hole you made earlier and hang in a bright window.
TIPS: This is a fun craft that parents and children can work on together. You can also glue thin ribbon around the rim of the lid, tie in a knot, and tie again leaving a hanger for the sun catcher.
