Stained Glass Hearts Suncatcher


Today, you can find me guest posting over on Red Ted Art for the 31 Days of Love series.

For this special occasion, E and I made a Stained Glass Hearts Suncatcher with crayon shavings! It’s a basic technique that you’ve probably tried before, most likely when you were a kid {although I personally had NEVER done it before} – but it was really fun, and the suncatcher is so pretty! We made a fairly big one but you could try a smaller version for a beautiful Valentine’s decoration that comes together quite quickly.
