Posted by Eureka! Beads on 11th Apr 2020

Suncatchers are a perfect project for young and old alike - this project uses one of our beautiful glass crystals to make a great window hanging! Follow our instructions to find out how.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 1m tigertail
  • 2 small tube crimps
  • 1 x 50mm clear pear shaped faceted crystal suncatcher
  • 1 large hole metal bead
  • 5 x indigo blue 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 5 x emerald green 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 5 x tanzanite purple 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 5 x black AB 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 3 x 3mm plain metal beads

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • Crimping Pliers
  • Wire Cutters

INSTRUCTIONS

Pick up your length of tigertail and thread it through a small tube crimp. Make a loop with the tigertail (approximately 3cm) and thread it back through the small crimp. Squish down and cut off any excess tigertail.

Then thread on your crystals:

  • 5 x indigo blue 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 1 x 3mm plain metal bead
  • 5 x black AB 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 1 x 3mm plain metal bead
  • 5 x tanzanite purple 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 1 x 3mm plain metal bead
  • 5 x emerald green 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • large hole metal bead

Thread the tigertail through the hole in the top of the clear pear shaped faceted crystal suncatcher and then back through the crimp. Pull up so that the loop is firm but not too tight. Squish down the crimp and cut off any excess tigertail.

Your crystal suncatcher is now ready to hang in the window. Use the second loop to hang from a hook etc. The possibilities for creating a unique window hanging are endless - use different colour crystals, swarovski crystals, glass humming birds etc to create something truly different!
