Moon and Star Dried Flower Suncatcher

Spring is finally here! Anyone else love this season? The longer days and warmer weather definitely help to brighten my spirits. We've shared a ton of spring crafts over the years and today's is an oldie, but a goodie. We're making celestial suncatchers using contact paper!

Materials Needed


Let's Make some Flower Suncatchers!


1. Press flowers that you picked between two heavy books. (We try to pick mostly flat flowers and slip them between two sheets of paper before placing them between books.) If you don't want to press your own flowers, you can also buy them here.

We usually wait two weeks for our flowers to flatten and dry.

2. Cut out a sheet of contact paper. Pull off the backing and place it sticky-side up. Tape the contact paper down to your table. 

3. Add an outline of star or moon that you cut out from a brown paper bag.

4. Place your pressed flowers and any fun extras like sequins or glitter inside your star or moon.

5. Cut out another sheet of contact paper and put it on top of your craft. Press down!

6. Cut out your star or moon. Make sure to leave a little bit of contact paper around your shape to make sure that the contact paper really sticks closed.


And that's it!
