Tips for making a dotted suncatcher
- If you’re creating with a large group of kids, you can roll the contact paper across the workspace. Then cut smaller top pieces and put each child’s name on them before cutting them out.
- Use the grid on the back of the contact paper to help you draw the cross shape.
- When choosing ink colors, make sure to use colors that work well together. This will help any overlapping colors from looking brown.
- Punch a hole in the top of the cross and use them for bookmarks too!
How to make this easy cross craft
Below is our step by step tutorial for creating this cross sun catcher craft. Feel free to print them for easy reference!
- Start by drawing a cross onto the clear side of your contact paper.
- Peel off the backing of the contact paper
- Tape it down to your surface, sticky side up.
- Press the pencil eraser onto the ink pad and then onto the cross. Have the kids aim for the inside of the cross shape.
