Using the heavy duty scissors, have an adult cut one Skinny Stick in half.
Glue (2) Skinny Sticks together in a “V” shape, as shown.
Glue a half piece and whole Skinny Stick to the top of the left side of the “V” shape as shown.
Repeat step 4 on the right side to complete your heart, as shown.
Paint the heart and let dry.
Use a Red Glitter Stick as a hanger for your sun catcher. Add Pony Beads for some added interest!
Place your heart with the painted side down on a piece of wax paper. Pour craft glue onto a paper plate and apply to the backside of the heart frame using a foam brush.
Lay a strip of tissue paper onto the frame and apply glue on top.

Allow the sun catcher to dry completely before hanging.
