Step 1: Supplies

1.) construction paper. 2.) vegetable or olive oil. 2.)scissors 3.) string (not pictured) 4.) a plate.

Step 2:

First, cut your paper into any shape that you want. I'm going to do a heart, but all shapes work just fine. ;)

Step 3:

Here comes the fun part! Take your paper and your oil and pour some oil in the cap. Place the paper on the plate (to keep things clean) and drizzle the cap of oil all over your paper. You can do this as many times as you like, but make sure that some dry paper is visible.

Step 4:

Let dry for about 20 minutes.

Step 5:

Now poke a hole through the paper and pull the string through. After that, place it in your window.

Step 6:

Yay! All done! Enjoy your pretty sun catcher, and don't forget to show me pictures! :)
