Glittering Sun Catchers

My friends and I LOVED making these glittering sun catchers.  It was a fun camping project that my friend shared with us one cloudy afternoon while sitting around the campfire.  After a quick refresher course on tying fish knots, we were ready to get started.  Even though the fish in the lake weren't biting, this lucky catch was quite a trophy!

This is what we did;

  1. We found birch branches to hang our strings of beads.
  2. Starting at the bottom, we tied fish line to a large bead leaving enough line to make strands of various lengths and to later tie them to the birch branch.  We added a small bead between larger beads to help separate them and make them stand out.
  3. We added a wire hanger and hung them in the sun! 
So, so pretty!  You'll LOVE these as much as we do.
