Small Plate Suncatcher

2 Materials
4 Hours

Do you have small plates that you just can't part with?

Try this project! It lets you display the small plates you love and it brings life to your window areas.

I had an old plate with pretty detail, so decided to put it to good use...

Using a peel n stick plate holder, I cut it to fit the area, and positioned it just so it would hang properly....

Get out the beads!

Take a tape measure to measure how far down you'll want the decoration to hang. Not TOO far, or it would look awkward and be easy for people to bump into.

Notice I use a bag clip to hold onto my fine, fishing line as I work.

Then it's just a matter of tying and hanging in a sunny window.

I once read where... "Happiness is finding your bead pattern" I laughed because, I understood what they meant.

On a cold winters day, the sun can still liven up a mood.

Thanks for viewing my small plate sun catcher!
