Easter has to be one of my favorite holidays. It symbolizes spring and reminds us of all the beautiful things nature has to offer. And there’s chocolate – lots and lots of chocolate! With Easter right around the corner, we thought what better way to celebrate than with a great sun catcher.
Egg Sun Catcher
Here are the supplies you will need to complete this project:
- Regular computer paper
- Vellum spring pack
- Glue (preferably a glue stick)
- Hole punch
- Thin ribbon
We used our new vellum spring pack, available for purchase for only $1.78, for this project. Because this pack is so perfect, with the light pastel colors, we were able to utilize all 5 colors (Bashful, Wisteria, Pastel Blue, Pastel Green, Pink) for our sun catcher.
Spring Vellum Pack
Unless you are extremely steady with free-hand drawing, I suggest going online to find an egg shape to trace onto the vellum.
Note: The size of your egg sun catcher is completely up to you. It can be as small or large as you want!
Once you have the egg shape printed, select any color vellum you want. I chose the Bashful and Wisteria for my bases. Trace the egg onto the vellum with your pencil. For your egg, make up a design that you like or leave it plain. I chose to have three sections that give the effect of a painted Easter egg.
On a regular sheet of copy paper, I drew the full shape of the egg and my design so that I would be able to duplicate the design correctly onto the vellum sheets.
I traced the main outline of the egg onto the Wisteria and Bashful vellum sheets.
To hang it, hole-punch the top of the egg and feed the ribbon through.
There you have it, a homemade Easter decoration to hang in the window. Or, get super crafty and make more to complete a mobile!
From all of us here at ARC Crafts, have a Happy Easter!
