How I love these!
Something hanging out the window just for the sake of beauty.
Beauty in the gathering...
...beauty in the planning
...beauty in the seeing.
You'll only need cold weather, beautiful bits of nature, a disposable (re-usable) plastic plate, and ribbon or string!
Get your supplies outside on your table.
You'll want to assemble your suncatcher where it can freeze, as moving it will disturb your design.
Pour the water into your plate first -3/4 of an inch or so, and lay your ribbon or string so that each end comes to at least the half-way part of the plate.
Lay your pinecones, berries, leaves and sticks the way you like.
Wait 'til it freezes then release it from the plate,
and hang it up where it pleases you.
The front side and the back side are both lovely.
