Scrap Ribbon Apple Suncatchers
This simple weaving craft is better suited for older children, but younger hands will certainly enjoy a go! Use patterned red, yellow, and green ribbon to create a variety of apples, perfect for autumn.
To make this craft you will need:
- Mason jar rings (wide mouth)
- Mason jar frog lids (wide mouth)
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
After gathering supplies, invite children to weave the ribbon through the mason jar frogs. An assortment of solid, plaid, striped, and polka dot ribbon makes the sun catchers look whimsical and fun!
Squirt hot glue or tacky craft glue inside of the mason jar ring. Place the mason jar frog inside of the ring, then allow the glue to dry. When the glue is dry, use scissors to remove the excess ribbon from the suncatcher.
String a small loop of brown ribbon through the top of the suncatcher, then secure it with glue. Fold a small piece of green ribbon together to create a leaf for the apple, then glue it to the inside of the brown ribbon.
Hang the suncatchers to the window with a small removeable Glue Dot.
