Simple, Beautiful Sun Catchers

Last month Tottie and I made Fall Sun Spiral Sun Catchers.  Today, Nutty and I bring you simple, yet beautiful sun catchers that older kids can make!
To make them for yourselves, you'll need:
  • Fishing line (shhh...don't tell my husband that I stole some from one of his fishing poles!)
  • Small mirrors (6 per sun catcher)
  • Beads (6 per sun catcher)
  • Hot glue gun (or similar glue)
1)  Make sure you give yourself plenty of fishing line.  You'll need a longer string than you think because you'll have to put a hanging loop at the top.
2)  Start by tying two beads at the bottom of your string.  
3)  Next, glue two mirrors back to back a little further up the line making sure your line is in the middle of your string.  (Click on the photo to enlarge it if need be)  Your sun catcher should look like the photo below.

4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 two more times moving further up the string.

5)  Make a loop at the top to use for hanging.

*Helpful hint: Put a dot of glue on each knot to prevent slipping because fishing line comes un-knotted super easily!

You're done!  Aren't they beautiful?
