How To Make Suncatcher Mosaics For Kids

Decide what shape you want your final suncatcher mosaic to be. We’ve made heart suncatchers in different sizes from about 4 inches to 12 inches high but you could do any shape or size you like.

Once you’ve decided on the final shape and size you want your suncatcher mosaic to be, you need to cut out two pieces of big enough to fit your design on with some overlap. Leave the contact paper in a square or rectangle shape for now, DON’T CUT OUT YOUR FINAL SHAPE YET!

Peel the backing off one piece of and fix your paper mosaic tiles onto the sticky surface.

Because we were making simple hearts using a random design of the children just scattered the tiles all over the contact paper. This method is great for young children.

Detailed Mosaics For Older Kids:

If you are working with children who want to design a more detailed mosaic suncatcher it can be really useful to sketch the outline of the mosaic shape onto a piece of paper and place that under the as a guide to the area to work within or cut out the shape needed before they start.

Once the are all in place peel the backing off the second piece of and place it over the design to fix all of the mosaic tiles into place.

Finally out the final shape of your suncatcher mosaic, whatever it may be. The advantage of cutting out the final shape at the very end is that kids don’t need to match the exactly to the very edge of the design because the edges are trimmed last. This way the edges always look neat and the tiles go right to the outline giving a defined shape.
