Beaded Suncatchers

These fun beaded suncatchers are a perfect craft for kids!

Beading wire can be twisted into a variety of shapes (use Fiskars templates to make easy guides), strung with brightly colored beads, and hung from a sunny window. I picked up small suction cups at my local craft store to make hanging the suncatchers a breeze!
