Supplies for Juneteenth Flag Suncatcher

  • Juneteenth flag template
  • Scissors
  • Clear contact paper
  • Recycled tissue paper
  • White cardstock
  • Cricut (optional)


  1. First, download and print the FREE Juneteenth flag template then cut. If you have a cutting machine, choose a Juneteenth flag image in your design space then cut. Set aside.
  2. Next, allow your child to use safety scissors to cut the red, white and blue tissue paper into small pieces. If you’re not comfortable with your child using scissors, let them tear the tissue paper by hand.
  3. Cut a piece of clear contact paper that is larger than the Juneteenth flag template then peel off the backing. Carefully place your Juneteenth flag template on top of the contact paper. Your child will need help with this step.
  4. Cover the inside of the Juneteenth flag with the tissue paper pieces. Blue belongs at the top and red belongs at the bottom.
  5. Carefully peel off the back of another contact paper and place it on top of the Juneteenth flag, sticky side down. Smooth it out to get rid of any creases or bubbles. Your child may need help with this step.
  6. Finally, cut out the Juneteenth flag suncatcher. Use double-sided tape to stick to a window or sliding glass door.
