Brighten your day (and home) with some nature suncatchers!
Cut a medium-sized rectangle or square from a piece of recycled cardboard. Then, cut the inside of the cardboard to create a frame. Attach contact paper to one side of the frame leaving the sticky side exposed (secure the edges with packing tape). Gather nature treasures like leaves, petals, pine needles, grass, etc., and stick them to your nature frame. When you’re finished, hang or hold your sun catcher up outside or near a window with a lot of sunlight.
