How to Hang a Suncatcher in a Window


A suncatcher is a decoration typically made of stained or clear glass, which reflects natural outdoor lighting. Suncatchers can add a hint of color and aesthetic interest to any room in your home that has access to natural lighting from a window. To display your suncatcher for optimal effect, you will need to hang it in a window. In most cases, you can hang your suncatcher in a window in less than 10 minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Ruler
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Window suction cup
  • Measure an 8-inch to 12-inch section of thread with a ruler, depending on how far you want your suncatcher to hang down. Cut the thread to length with scissors.

  • Feed one end of the thread through the hole in the hanging extension of a window suction cup. Pull the thread through until there is an equal length of thread on each side of the hole.

  • Feed one end of the thread through the hanging ring on the top of your suncatcher. Tie the ends of the thread in a knot.

  • Position the suction cup on the window so that the suncatcher hangs near the center. Press the suction cup gently against the glass of the window.

Tips & Warnings

  • Choose a window that faces east if you want your suncatcher to reflect the greatest amount of light in the morning or a window that faces west if you prefer maximum reflected light in the evening.
  • Use string or wire instead of thread if you plan to hang a large or heavy suncatcher -- thread may not support the weight of larger suncatchers.
