This is a quick and easy project that you can do with your kids in no time at all. Not only are they beautiful, but the birds love to feed on the berries during the winter months.
- fill a pie tin or tart pan with water
- add 4 to 5 drops of Food coloring– any color you like, or none at all. (I chose yellow to go with the Oranges; Red to go with the apples. Cranberries, Blueberries and other fruits work great too, as well as bird seed or peanuts) you are limited only to your imagination!
- gather a piece of twine or rope for each suncatcher you want to make. I tied knots at the ends and then laid each end down into the water. Then I simply put them outside to freeze overnight. Great way to put this terribly cold weather to use.
- Finally - pop out your sun catchers and hang them up in your tree or along the fence. Use your imagination. I actually ended up moving them and putting them amongst my Christmas decorations so that the light would play off of the ice. They are so beautiful when the sun is really shining or the Christmas Lights are a glow!
These would make a fun gift – just watch their faces light up.
enjoy your project!
