Glass star suncatcher kits have now been updated to allow you to select the star colour you would like.
This kit contains a fused glass star, tools, seed beads, wire, ribbon and instructions to produce a hanging fused glass star suncatcher. The idea is that you thread beads on the wire, and with the bead decorated wire wrap the star.
The instructions will give you photographs, tips and hints for decorating your star, and you will be able to customise it to make it unique.
- one star (select your colour from dropdown box),
- one set of round nosed pliers,
- one set of wire cutters
- two bags of seed beads (different colours)
- hanging ribbon
- approx. 1m length of wire
Although this kit is suitable for children, I would recommend adult supervision for ages below about 8, due to the nature of the material, the small beads, and incase of sharp edges – it is after all glass! Ages 5 and up should find it enjoyable to thread the beads on the wire, but may need a little assistance.
TIP: I have often done short workshops with small children at St. Fagans History Museum where I’ve found it easier to hold the wire for small children to allow them to thread the beads.
