RCC 3 – Masjid Sun catcher


This is my favorite so far, I usedย IMG_4047

  • some plastic pony beads
  • parchment paper (or any paper)
  • tape
  • pencil
  • tweezer
  • a baking sheet
  • foil paper

I used opaque beads for the Masjid pattern and used the transparent ones to fill in the rest.

The steps were easy, I drew a relatively easy masjid vector, cut it in a rectangle and taped it to a foil paper. them I folded the sides of foil paper making it a small tray. Then i used my tweezer to fill the beads on the paper.

It was so tough, a slight movement will cause most of the beads to move from their position and I had to be very still while filling it up.

Once it was done, I rearranged it and popped it in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. This is how it looked right out of the oven.


Then I let it cool for 10 or so minutes (toughest wait !). Voila it was so awesome I couldn’t believe it. you can hang it out in the sun or just make it a wall hanging ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. As Salam Alikum sister thanks for sharing this craft it’s beautiful, not sure how I could get my three monkeys to sit still while we did this craft

    • It was actually for slighhtly older kids.

      What you can do is let them fill a single layer of cup-cake mold with any assorted beads and bake ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Thanks I’ll just book mark it to do when they are a bit older, they are 8,6 & 4 years old but don’t really sit still very much always moving

  4. This is so so creative. And so pretty. I do not have an iota or craft creativeness in me so I shall follow this series of yours for more inspiration .

  5. WOw love this idea! Should try it with mo kiddos when they are little older. Doesn’t leaving in the oven stink the kitchen with burning plastic? Never tried baking for crafts
