Butterfly DIY Craft Kit Make Your Own Suncatcher

Description

A fantastic Butterfly Make Your Own suncatcher kit which contains everything you need to make your own colourful Butterfly Suncatcher. It contains real specialist art glass, no plastic or imitation “glass” here!

The kit includes full instructions, step by step photos and safety guidelines in a PDF, sent via email. Or choose the printed instructions option. The clear glass in the kit is pre-fired which means no sharp edges and the butterfly outline is permanently fused onto the glass. The coloured glass can be slightly sharp but tweezers are supplied.

All you need to do is make your suncatcher and then send it back to me to be fired in the kiln. I’ll then drill a hole, add some ribbon and you’ll have your very own suncatcher to cherish and keep, made by you! No experience needed, comprehensive photo and text instructions are provided.

The colours included in the kit are; Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Light Blue, Dark Blue and Purple. Use some of the colours or all of them, it’s entirely your choice! For example, you could copy my design or create your own masterpiece.

Are you a crafter who wants to try something different? This is the kit for you! Worried you don’t have enough creative flair to be able to make your own suncatcher? Fear not! You absolutely can do it. Instructions are supplied as a PDF download to guide you in making your own work of art – this will be available to download straight after purchase or you can opt for printed instructions to be sent with the kit.

How it works:

  • Buy the kit
  • Receive the kit
  • Design and make your own suncatcher
  • Take a photo of your finished design (this is really important – if anything happens in transit, I’ll be able to fix it)
  • Box it back up in the packaging it came in and send it to me
  • I’ll then fire your suncatcher in the kiln and drill a hole and add a hanger
  • I send the completed suncatcher to you.
  • Turnaround time from me receiving your Suncatcher back to me will be approximately 1 week
  • There is no time limit for you to return your design to me for firing in the kiln – Perfect to store as Christmas or birthday presents!
  • Please include your name and address when returning to me!

Care of Your Glass

I wrote a blog post on how not to hang your glass – please don’t use window suckers!

General Care Instructions:

  • Glass is breakable so please handle with care.
  • Gentle handwash only – no harsh chemicals or abrasives – wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth.
  • If your glass is to be placed outside, please protect it from wind and storms.


  • Jewellery Care:

  • Never immerse in water.
  • Ensure you remove your jewellery before bathing/showering, swimming and cleaning.
  • Sterling Silver and Plated Silver will always tarnish over time, especially when not worn for a time. Use a good qualty soft silver polishing cloth to remove any tarnish and bring back the shine.

    The traditional rainbow is 7 colours –



  • Red
