I’ve never been the biggest fan of birthstone jewelry but now that I have kids, I can’t get enough of it! That’s why I love this Handmade Mother’s Day Suncatcher so much. It’s the perfect reminder of the three most important days of my life!
- String beads
Cut a 12″ section of the wire and secure one end onto a tree branch on the pendant. Thread the first bead all the way down to where the wire and pendant meet. Place bead in open branch space and wrap around another branch to secure.
- Continue adding beads
Going one bead at a time and alternating colors, continue adding beads until entire pendant is filled. Make sure to secure fasten the end once all the beads are in place. Wouldn’t want all your work to fall apart!
- Add hanging wire
Cut another section of wire to create a way to hang the Mother’s Day Suncatcher. You can either use the exact same wire you used for the beads or coated wire for a nicer finish. Keep in mind that the coated wire will need to be secured with a bead crimp and crimper.
Hope you enjoy making this Handmade Mother’s Day Suncatcher as much as I did! It’s the perfect stand-alone gift for the mother who has it all or include it with a gift card for a super special day. Either way, your mother will definitely think of you every time the sun comes shining in!
