Magical star tissue paper suncatcher craft for kids

For todays craft we decided it was time to use up some of our mountainous pile of tissue paper. We’d recently made some cute rainbow suncatchers and decided it would be nice to add some more colours to our windows. My son decided that we should make some stars. I find stars a pain to draw (I can never get them equal), so we made our star template on the computer and have also added it below to make our cute magic star suncatcher craft that little bit easier for anyone else who has the same problem! I think these suncatcher crafts are loads of fun and hopefully we will have some more to share soon!

Here’s what we used

Black card
Star shape template (optional)
Tissue paper
Crepe paper
Scissors
Double side tape

How we made our magic star suncatcher craft

First you will need to make your star shape outline. To do this you can either free hand draw a star and then draw another star inside at a 1-2cm gap or you can print, cut out and draw around our star shape. Once you have drawn your star you’ll need to cut it out.

Place your double sided tape around the edges of your star. Then cut out some strips of tissue paper, stretch and stick them tightly across the centre of your star.

Trim around your star to remove any excess.

Then, cut out some long coloured crepe paper strips and using double sided tape secure them to the bottom of your star so that they hang freely.
