Here at Rainbow Symphony, we’re passionate about our suncatchers. They’re a unique way to bring color, light, and personality into any space. Our rainbow suncatchers use holographic prisms and diffraction to turn every speck of light into vibrant rainbows that stretch out across your room. Figuring out how to hang a suncatcher may seem straightforward, but there are several tips and tricks to consider when you’re deciding how and where to hang your suncatcher.

Read below for our step-by-step guide on how to hang a suncatcher!

1. Pick the Perfect Suncatcher

Before you can think about how to hang your suncatcher, you’ll have to pick one out, of course! Our suncatchers come in a variety of designs and types, so you can browse to your heart’s content. If you already have a room or place in mind, you should consider the size and type of suncatcher that you’re buying. If not, that’s totally okay! Just find the suncatcher that speaks to you, and you can find the perfect place for it later. You can choose from simple, clean designs, or go for something more festive around the holidays, like a snowman.

2. Find the Right Spot

Once you have your suncatcher, you have to find the perfect spot to hang it. When looking for that perfect spot, consider how your suncatcher works: light is diffracted through the special holographic lenses to turn light into individual rainbows. Naturally, then, suncatchers work best when they are situated in a window that gets direct sunlight.

3. Hang Using a Suction Cup

Now, it’s finally on to how to hang a suncatcher! Start with cleaning your window; a clean surface will help the strong suction cup adhere to your window. Next, wet the suction cup before placing it on the window, ensuring it will not slip off the clean window. At Rainbow Symphony, all of our suncatchers come with suction cups and hooks, so hanging them up is a breeze.

If you prefer that your suncatcher dangle from the suction cup, tie a thread to the suncatcher and the other end to the suction cup. This can create a bit more movement, which can really make your rainbows come alive!

4. Admire the View

Once you’ve mastered the art of how to hang a suncatcher, the rest is easy: you just have to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view! Every time sunlight comes through and moves throughout the day, your suncatcher-adorned window, your room will be covered in vibrant, glowing rainbows. It won’t be long before you decide you need a suncatcher in every window.
