What materials did you use? I used Sworski beads, s waxed unstretchable white cord. A board with small holes drilled into it for the strings to be strung through.

What are you most proud of? They look beautiful when they are finished. They look so nice when the sun shines on them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't buy cording that stretches. You have to use the wax coated unstretchable cording and you want to use white since the black would show through the bead especially when the sun shines on it. I have never seen these sun catchers any place and I would be very much interested in getting more patterns for different things if there is someone else out there that makes these. It is a fun project to work on and if done correctly it is just plain beautiful when finished.

Hi, looks so cute...have you thought of using the perler bead patterns...they are simple yet should lend themselves well to a project like this.

Where do you get your patterns?

I have about 12 to 15 patterns. /You can also make your own using cross stitch and count of the spaces. They have to be small . We made these a couple years ago . would be glad to share patterns

I would love to make different sun catchers using this beading format. Can you please let me know if you've been able to find any patterns. Thanks so much
