How to Make Suncatchers with Glue


  • Elmer’s white glue
  • Food coloring or liquid watercolor paint
  • Toothpick
  • Plastic lid (the lid needs to be flexible enough so you can bend it to get the suncatcher out)
  • Hole punch
  • String


1. Pour enough glue into the lid to cover the entire inner surface. The best lids to use are flexible lids from yogurt, hummus, sour cream, or guacamole containers.

2. Add drops of food coloring. **Tip: About 3 drops is more than enough.

3. Swirl the colors around the glue with a toothpick. Let your kids be creative and make beautiful patterns in the glue.

4. Let the glue dry until completely solid. Depending on how much glue you poured in the lid, it may take 2-3 days.

This is the hardest part of this glue suncatcher craft. My kids checked on the glue every few hours and every time, they were 100% convinced that the glue had dried all the way.

5. When you see the edges starting to peel off the lid, you can peel off the glue.

6. Punch a hole in the suncatcher with the hole punch.

7. Insert the string into the hole and tie the ends.

8. Hang the suncatcher in a sunny spot. We tied ours to the tree branches outside and the bright sunlight going through the translucent suncatchers was just so beautiful!
