This is a very easy one even for miss 3. I’m hoping to try star patterns this Christmas.


  • 1 Aquadhere
  • 4 food colours
  • 6 lids
  • 1 pk toothpicks


  1. Place lids on an old newspaper or inside a low box to catch any spills. Cover the bottom of the lids with glue. I use an eye dropper to drip the food colour on the glue but the smaller food colours are squeeze bottles so drip without help. It only takes a few drops around the glue and then swirl it with the toothpicks.
  2. The colour will spread as the glue dries. You can swirl a few colours but don't over mix or you just get black. These will take a few days to dry before removing from the lids. The kids like to find driftwood to hang them from with fishing line.

  • Where do you buy aquadhere from?

    • I get it from woolworths. They have a little section for handyman stuff usually.

      • Thanks for that – would never have thought to look there!

      • What a great idea! i’ll look out for these in our next shop.


  • Interesting suncatchers. Nice and easy too.


  • This looks very special. And I love the beautiful vibrant colours you chose!!

    • This is ALL the kids work. They mixed too many and got black ones last time so did one colour each this time.


  • One to keep safe until we get some warm, dry days. Think this would be better made outside.

    • It takes a few days to dry in full sun. The problem I have is the bower birds love the colours and try to pinch them.


  • Thanks for your sun catcher – lovely!
