Spin Art Heart Suncatchers

By the end of January I am always obsessed with hearts and so excited for Valentine's Day! We started decorating a bit at our house over the weekend.

These easy spin art heart suncatchers are so fun to make and are gorgeous to display! Do you have a salad spinner for spin art yet? If not, go and grab one asap!


  • salad spinner (IKEA has great inexpensive ones)
  • washable paint & liquid watercolors
  • scissors
  • colored cardstock
  • coffee filters
  • glue/tape


To get started you just lay out a coffee filter inside the salad spinner, drop in some paint (several squirts), close the lid, and spin!

Take out the finished masterpiece and let it dry... while you make more. My kids are obsessed with this process, so we always do it for awhile. 

Next, cut out some heart outlines and then cut the coffee filters to fit. Glue the outlines onto the coffee filter.

Once they are all glued you are ready to hang your creations!! We hung ours in our sunniest room. They make me happy every time I see them. 

If you love hearts like I do, you may want to check out our Valentine's Day pinterest board. I have been pinning up a storm!
