Patriotic Sun Catchers

We love to hang seasonal sun catchers on our kitchen door. These Fourth of July sun catchers were easy and fun to make.

Materials and adult preparation:
  • clear contact paper cut into nine inch squares
  • 1" x 9" strips of red, white, and blue construction paper. Use a star craft punch to punch little stars from the strips.
  • 4 1/2" stars cut from red, white, and blue paper
  • Red, white, and blue glitter


  • Remove the back from the contact paper and place on table sticky side up.
  • Place the strips of construction paper around the edges of the contact paper to create a border.
  • Place a large star in the center of the contact paper. Use the small stars and glitter to decorate the sun catcher.


  1. If these don't help you get in the mood for 4th of July, I don't know what will!! They look great! :-)
