Materials:

  • Black acrylic paint
  • White glue
  • Transparency film
  • Permanent markers (MANY COLOURS)

Equipment:

  • Empty squeeze bottle (or half full bottle of glue)

  • Free Printable Heart template (or any other shape!)

Instructions:

Step 1: Find what you need

  • Gather your supplies and materials.

Step 2: Mix black glue and prepare the template

  • Add 1 part black paint to an empty squeeze bottle. (We marked 1 cm on the side of the bottle and filled the paint to that mark.)



    Pour in another part of white glue, making a 1:1 ratio of paint and glue. (We marked 2cm on the side and filled the glue to that mark.)


    Place the cap on the bottle and shake well for a few minutes, to fully combine the glue and the paint.


    Print out a heart template (or a shape of your choice!) and roughly cut it out, leaving between 1/2 - 1 inch around the outside.


    Tape the template to the transparency film, printed side down, so that you can see the shape from the other side of the film.


    Step 3: Make the suncatcher outlines

    • Trace around the outline of the shape with the black glue.


      Begin adding lines inside the shape to create a stained glass look.



      Continue adding lines and shapes until you're happy with the design. Don't add the lines too close together, because the glue will spread a bit.Allow the black glue to dry overnight.


      Step 4: Colour the suncatcher and cut it out

      • Use permanent marker to colour in a section of the heart.Use the fine tip of the marker to go along the edge of the black glue, and the thicker side of the marker to fill in the rest.


        Add the same colour in different areas of the suncatcher if you'd like, and then choose a second colour.


        Continue colouring in sections of the suncatcher until they're all filled.




    Remove the paper template and cut out the heart suncatcher. Cut about 1/4 inch away from the black line - no need to be super precise, because the part outside the heart is clear and won't be seen.

    Your DIY stained glass suncatcher is complete!
