Heart Sun Catcher Wings
Sun Catchers are so very magical & these heart wings have brought us so much joy!
Clear packing tape
Cellophane paper (NOT tissue paper) - we buy a variety pack on Amazon.
X-acto knife or sharp scissors
Use a pencil & draw the heart shape on a large piece of cardboard. I based the size off of her height.
Inside of the heart, draw a bunch of smaller hearts.
Cut out the outer & inner using the X-acto knife or scissors.
Cut pieces of cellophane paper and tape to the back. This doesn’t have to be neat or exact, just cover all open spaces & tape down edges.
To make them into wings:
Cut two equal pieces of string. I start long & then cut them down.
Tape one end of the string to the left of the center (top).
Tape one end of the second piece of string to the right of the center (top).
You are going to tape the ends to the bottom of the wings. This will create two loops that they can slip their arms through like a backpack.
You can either cut the strings before you tape them, or loop/tie them tighter once they are on! This is usually what I do because it creates a perfect fit.
Then, go chase the sun! Depending on where the sun is and the time of day, the shadows will be longer/shorter/brighter!
