You can make this handprint suncatcher to fit any size hand you will just need to cut the contact paper so you have extra space around the hand.
If you are wanting to make this suncatcher craft, check your local craft store, dollar tree or head on over to Amazon for the pre-cut square tissue paper.
Personally when hanging these handprint suncatchers, I like to use double-sided tape to stick them to the window. It is so much easier to hang them, but if you don’t have any you can just make your own double-sided tape by rolling one-inch pieces of tape end to end so you end up with double-sided tape.
These handprint suncatchers looks adorable when you have them on a window and the DIY Mother’s Day Flower pots are on the window sill with them.

How to Make Handprint Suncatchers
- Cut your tissue paper into one-inch squares or use the pre-cut square tissue paper.
