Mini Embroidery Hoop Halloween Suncatcher Craft



This mini embroidery hoop Halloween suncatcher craft is so fun and simple for the kids to do! Our mini embroidery hoop suncatcher craft that we shared here back in the beginning of the summer was such a hit, we decided to make some Halloween themed mini hoop suncatchers this past weekend. We went with simple jack-o-lantern pumpkin and ghost designs for our mini embroidery hoops, though you can get just as creative as you'd like with your mini embroidery hoop Halloween suncatchers (or use medium or giant hoops to make your suncatchers - the choice is yours!) These suncatchers only require a handful of supplies and about a half hour of time to make (minus drying time.) This is a fairly frugal Halloween craft (at just $1.50- $2 each to make), so it would a make a great make-and-take kids craft for a Halloween party too!

Ready to make your own mini embroidery hoop Halloween suncatcher with the kids? Read on for the full supply list and our easy step-by-step tutorial.



What you'll need:
  • Fine paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Mini suction cup hooks (for hanging your completed mini hoop suncatcher in a window.)
  • Mini embroidery hoops (or larger embroidery hoops if you prefer.)
  • Wax paper or parchment paper
  • Black puffy paint
  • Suncatcher paint OR colored glue (that dries translucent.)
  • Optional: translucent white glitter, gold glitter / glitter of your choice 
How to:
  1. Cut s piece of wax or parchment paper sized to fit your mini hoop (or hoop of your choice.)
  2. Secure the wax  or parchment paper in your hoop (carefully making sure to tug it tightly in the hoop while still being gentle enough not to rip it - take your time with this step.)
  3. Use black puffy paint to create your jack-o-lantern design (s)  and ghost design (s.) Allow adequate time for drying. 
  4. Fill in the space around your jack-lantern design (s) using orange suncatcher paint and gold glitter (or your choice of colors / glitter.) Fill in the space around your ghost design (s) using light white suncatcher paint and translucent white glitter (or your choice of colors / glitter.) set to the side and allow adequate time for drying.
  5. Once dry, hang your completed mini embroidery hoop Halloween suncatcher (s) in a window using a mini suction cup hook, and enjoy!

Happy crafting and Happy Halloween, friends!
