My girls LOVED how beautiful our Valentine's Day Suncatchers turned out recently, so we decided to use the same technique to make Spring Flower Suncatchers.  The frills and ruffles of a paper doily make pretty petals, and the thin paper is perfect for soaking up watercolor.  Luckily, we've done plenty of doily crafts before (Christmas Trees, Pumpkins, and Valentine's Day T-shirts) so we had a good stash of sizes to use!

To make Spring Flower Suncatchers, all you need are paper doilies in a variety of sizes (make sure you have some little ones for flower centers), watercolor paint, paintbrushes, and a glue stick.

Paint Doilies

This part is pretty simple!  Paint the doilies.

Paint them in all sizes in lots of different colors and color combinations.

If you'd like to make some traditional flowers, be sure to paint lots of plain yellow and orange small centers.

You can paint your flowers plain or paint patterns.

Set the doilies aside to dry.  The paper is very thin, so it doesn't take long.  You can easily paint the doilies in the morning and assemble the flowers and finish the project in the afternoon.

Assemble Flowers

Once the doilies have dried, assemble them into flowers.  Use a glue stick to layer them up however you'd like!

Just put a dab of glue in the center and then place another doily on top.  You can make your flowers 2, 3, or even 4 layers!  Just remember that the more layers you have, the less transparent and suncatchery they become.

Don't they look pretty?!  Time to hang them up.  We just used tape and arranged them in our favorite kitchen window.

This would be a great project for a preschool or kindergarten classroom to work on together.  Make a whole garden!
