This fabric sun catcher is fun to make and looks great hanging in front of a window. You can use fabric scraps or ribbon that you have on hand and create your own themed sun catcher. For this project we used an Indian sari fabric for a Indian themed sun catcher for our upcoming festival.
You could use Christmas fabric for a lovely holiday gift.
To make the shapes use a heavy cardboard to cut out your diamond frames.
We made 3 frames in different sizes and one small circle for the bottom.
Once you have all your shapes cut out, bind the shapes with the ribbon or fabric. Secure the ends with some glue.
Create some beaded dangles with some fishing line and assorted beads and tie these onto the ends of the diamonds.
Use these beaded strands to secure the smaller triangle into the large one and so one as shown.
