These Frankenstein Sun Catchers crack me up! If you drive by our house they’re the first thing you see – and we’ve been getting quite a few compliments on them (from our neighbors, walkers, even the mail lady!).
If you have little ones and want to spark their creativity, these are the perfect project!
- Pencil (for tracing templates)
- Construction paper (colors: black, white, green)
- Green tissue paper
- Contact Paper
- Frankenstein Sun Catcher Template (if you have several children, or are a teacher and want to try this with your students, I have included a classroom set of templates to the PDF)
To make your own:
- Cut out a large piece of contact paper (approximately 12″ x 12″). Peel off the paper backing so the contact paper is sticky side up.
- Assemble the construction paper Frankenstein on top of the contact paper.
- Cut green tissue paper into tiny pieces and let your child fill in the face. (There is no wrong way to do this!)
- Once the face is filled in, press the contact paper onto a window and enjoy! (The contact paper is easy to remove, and you can move it from window to window easily without the project falling apart.)
- Once the Halloween season is over, you can press the contact paper onto a piece of white paper and use as a keepsake!
