To make a Halloween Window, follow these simple instructions:Halloween Window crafts suncatcher

  1. Cut some strips of black card, roughly 3-4cm wide. (Don’t worry about making them straight, as wobbly edges look more interesting!)
  2. Glue 4 strips together to make a frame shape, then trim off any overhanging ends at the corners.
  3. Draw a Halloween shape onto the black card with a pale pencil so the line shows up clearly, then cut out it out. (For the eyes and mouth you can cut into the card from the edge, so there’s no need to cut any awkward holes in the middle.)
  4. Glue your shape onto the bottom of the window frame. Turn the frame over and glue some thinner strips to finish the design. (Turning it over at this stage makes the picture neater, so all the ends of the thinner strips are on the back.)
  5. Keeping the picture this way round (ie turned over), glue along all the window frame strips and stick pieces of tissue paper over the top

Tips:

Tissue paper doesn’t need precisely cutting to fit the window as overlapping or torn pieces can make an interesting design.
