Heart Suncatcher

To make a heart-shaped suncatcher, you will need the following materials:

  • Stained glass in various shades of red, pink, and white
  • Copper foil
  • Soldering iron
  • Lead-free solder
  • Flux
  • Patina (optional)
  • Black felt or construction paper
  • Scissors
  • A heart-shaped template (you can use a paper heart or draw your own)

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make a heart-shaped suncatcher:

  1. Cut out a heart-shaped template from paper or cardboard.
  2. Trace the template onto the back of the stained glass pieces using a pencil. Cut out the hearts using a glass cutter or a pair of scissors.
  3. Lay the cut out hearts onto the template in a pattern that you like.
  4. Once you are happy with the layout, apply copper foil to the edges of the glass hearts. Use a foam brush to apply a thin layer of flux onto the foil.
  5. Use a soldering iron to melt the solder and join the foil-covered edges of the glass together.
  6. Once the soldering is complete, you can apply a patina if desired. This will give the suncatcher an antique look.
  7. Cut out a piece of black felt or construction paper that is slightly larger than the heart-shaped suncatcher.
  8. Glue the suncatcher onto the felt or construction paper using a strong adhesive.
  9. Punch a hole near the top of the suncatcher and thread a ribbon or string through it. Hang the suncatcher in a sunny window to enjoy!

I hope these instructions help you create a beautiful heart-shaped suncatcher!
