Create colorful DIY suncatchers using two part resin! This project is easy to mix up and to customize for your backyard!
Now that spring has arrived, I’ve been spending a ton of time outside! I’ve had so much fun working in our yard and making it absolutely beautiful! I really enjoy the sunshine and this is one of the only times I enjoy being sweaty and dirty! I recently shared our Spring lawn care routine and now that our lawn is looking beautiful, it was time to add some accessories! These DIY suncatchers look absolutely beautiful! (Especially on our brand new DIY Fence!)
- Start by preparing your EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy. This is a multi-step process so don’t start mixing until you are ready to do the whole project from the beginning to end! Start by mixing EQUAL parts of the Hardener and the Resin.
Stir the mixture for 2 minutes (be sure to scrape the bottoms and sides) then pour from the 1st cup into a 2nd and mix with a new stir stick for an additional minute.
- Gently pour resin into the mold
- Let sit for a bit so the resin starts to harden - this will help suspend the glitter/confetti. Add the confetti after about 20 minutes!
- After this, I added another layer of resin to ensure the confetti is "trapped" in the middle.
- After you've had enough time for the resin to set (depends on your climate and temperature!) then you can gently demold. I used a metal tin for mine and had to put it in the freezer to help demold.
- Drill a hole and add string to hang!.
I allowed my resin to set for about 36 hours before I demolded. Instead of a silicone or plastic mold, I just used a metal lid from an old tin! I didn’t have a round mold so I made my own! If you want to try this, I do recommend using Mold Release & Conditioner.
This easy resin project is a great way to create your own DIY suncatchers. I used metallic confetti and you can choose any color or design you want!
