30 Days of Classroom Christmas Crafts and Gifts...Day 10: Sun Catcher Ornaments


Day 10: Sun Catcher Ornaments

  • ornament drawing or outline
  • colored tissue paper
  • markers
  • clear tape
  • wax paper
  • iron
  • laminator (if desired)
  • ribbon
  1. Cut out center of the ornament.  I would do this for students and if you have a circle cutter (from scrapbooking) it would be very helpful to get good even cuts.  Have a Silhouette or Cricut?  Even better!
  2. Cut circles slightly bigger than the inside of the ornament out of wax paper.
  3. Put bits of tissue paper between 2 pieces of wax paper (waxy sides together if they feel different)
  4. Place a towel or cloth over the wax paper and iron the pieces together.  Keep the iron moving and check to see that the 2 wax paper pieces have adhered together after about 30 seconds.  
  5. Decorate the paper parts of the ornament.
  6. Carefully tape the wax paper circle to the inside of the ornament. 
  7. If desired, you can laminate the entire ornament for durability. 
  8. Attach a ribbon for a hanger.
