Project Kit: Floral Suncatcher

Learn to make a glass-on-glass mosaic suncatcher to enjoy the cheery blooms of summer all year long! Beginner friendly, and make on your own schedule.

 

Floral suncatchers are a colorful addition to your window, and a great way to step up from a nightlight kit, or even as your first beginner project. I'm adding some extra features into this kit like detailed, flower-specific cutting guides and a color reference for your design. You'll get to choose from 12 different floral designs, inspired by my Oregon garden. 

 

You'll learn how to use basic glass cutting tools to make specific shapes in creating your mosaic, and then how to grout and clean your finished artwork. 

 

You'll get almost all the materials needed (see below) to complete your project. You will need wheeled nippers to shape your glass to fit the design, and you'll find it's a handy tool you can use for future glass projects. Please select "add wheeled nippers" at purchase if you don't already have a pair, or can borrow them for the project. If you want to look for them in your area, they are usually sold at stained glass or craft stores rather than hardware stores.
