3Doodled Sun Catcher




About: I am a teacher outside of Boston and I love making cool stuff! Any prizes I'm lucky enough to win will go directly to my classroom (when appropriate) where I teach 6-12th grade English, Social Studies, and S...

Super easy and fun to make sun catcher with 3Doodler and transparent filament. Great little decoration to add to your window.

Step 1: BoM


Transparent filament

Design template



Window suction cup

Step 2: Outline

Cover your template with tape and then begin outing the image in a darker color than you plan to use.

Step 3: Color

I used orange to outline the sun and colored in the spots I wanted orange, the rest was colored in yellow. Later I added pink to fill in some of the holes in the sun. The moon is colored in blue and clear.

Step 4: Add a Loop

I used the last color I worked with to create a loop at the top of the sun catcher so that it can be hung on a suction cup or string.

Step 5: Done

Hang up in a window that gets lots of sunlight.
