Fused Glass Kit – DIY Design & Make Your Own Suncatcher

Description

A wonderful DIY suncatcher fused glass kit which contains everything you need to design and make your own colourful Suncatcher. It contains real specialist art glass, no plastic or imitation “glass” here!

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.

The fused glass kit includes full instructions, step by step photos and safety guidelines in a PDF, sent via email. The blank glass in the kit is pre-fired which means no sharp edges. The coloured glass can be slightly sharper .

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 use the supplied design ideas in the booklet or create your own design masterpiece.

The kit comes with full instructions including safety guidelines via a PDF download or you can opt to have printed instructions. Choose from: 10cm Square or Circle or 14cm long x 3cm wide prefused blanks.

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!

It sounds more complicated than it is! This glass suncatcher craft kit is a brilliant way to get creative and have something permanent and long lasting to add to your home. Fused glass can be situated inside or outside and doesn’t fade in the sun.

Supplied in the craft kit:

  • Pre-fused blank glass – Your choice of shape
  • 7 colours of frit in twist top vials
  • PVA Glue
  • 1 x Wooden Stick (for applying glue and moving the frit around)
  • 1 x cocktail stick (to apply small dots of glue for more intricate designs)
  • Full PDF instructions via download or email including a step-by-step guide and full colour & black and white design ideas or printed colour instructions – depending on which you choose.
  • 2 x Postage is included in the total price – Sending the kit to you and sending the finished suncatcher to you. You’ll need to send your creation to me – I advise to send Signed For but it isn’t essential.

What it might be handy (but not essential) to have: Tweezers, Teaspoon, Hairspray, Newspaper/scrap paper, Dustpan & Brush. If you are buying this craft kit as a gift, I can send direct to your recipient, just add the address at checkout or send me a message.

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.
  • You might not know there are different Rainbow colour versions! Here’s an explanation.

    The traditional rainbow is 7 colours –



  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Light Blue
  • Dark Blue
  • Purple


  • The 6 colour rainbow is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & queer Pride (LGBTQ+):
