Made from the base of drink bottles, these sun catchers are easy and fun. Collect a stash of bases and bring them out at a later date for a rainy day project with your kids.


  • drink bottles with a flower-shaped base
  • scissors
  • glitter glue
  • hole punch
  • cord
  • a large bead with a hole large enough for a doubled up cord


  1. Cut the base off your drink bottle.
  2. Decorate with glitter glue.
  3. Let the glue dry. You can speed up this process by placing your sun catchers on a warm radiator.
  4. Punch a hole.
  5. Double up the cord, thread the bead onto it and tie a knot.
  6. Pass the cord through the punched hole.
  7. Hang your sun catchers in the window or anywhere else they can sparkle in the sunshine.

I have made these but I also used fingernail polish to give a little extra color.
