Watermelon Sun Catcher Craft

Watermelon Sun Catcher

Okay, so I know many of you are focused on getting everything ready for your kids to go back to school right now, but I also know that many of you hate to see summer go. You can make one of these watermelon sun catchers, hang it up in your window, and enjoy a little bit of summer well into the cooler months. This is a fast and easy project everyone will enjoy making them.

Supplies You Need:

  • Clear Plastic Plate
  • Red and Green Glass Paint
  • Black Dimensional Paint
  • Ribbon
  • Glue

Tools You Need:

  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors

Paint the Red Part of the Watermelon

Make sure your plate is clean and dry. Use the red paint glass to paint the inside of the plate. Let the paint dry.

Paint the Green Part of the Watermelon

Paint around the entire edge of the plate using green paint. Let the green paint dry completely.

Paint on the Watermelon Seeds

Use black dimensional paint to make several watermelon seeds on the red part of the plastic plate. Set the plate aside and let it dry. It may take several hours for the dimensional paint to dry.

Glue the Ribbon Hanger on the Watermelon

Cut a piece of ribbon about 12-inches long. Fold it in half and hold the two ends together. Glue the ends of the ribbon to the back of the plate. Your watermelon sun catcher is now ready to hang up.

    I’m looking for a paint with colours that dry transparent. If you know of any could you please contact me with the names and let me know if this will work on any other kinds of crafts besides glass.

    Thank You

      Hi Brandi, You can use the transparent paint on other surfaces… What do you have in mind? You can also try making your own transparent glue using white school glue and paint of food coloring.
