Make Your Own Rainbow

Without the rain, there would be no rainbows.  Here, in the Midwest, we are still "enjoying" snow.  Of course, without the rain, you could still make your own rainbow, right?

Grab your Roy G Biv in card stock and a sheet of white as well.

You'll need a few more supplies:

Out of the white card stock, cut a cloud shape.  Cut strips out of the colored card stock.  Grab some glue, cotton balls and let's get started making rainbows.

I used tape to attach the rays of the rainbow to the back of the cloud.

Of course, after I turned my cloud around, I realized my Roy G Biv was going the wrong way.

Moving on...

Cover the front of your cloud with an even layer of glue.

Then start to make it fluffy by adding some cotton balls.

Just like that, rain or no rain, you can have your very own rainbow.

 Have extra cotton balls?  Don't worry, I have another cotton ball craft you can check out.


  1. This would be a cute craft for school! You KNOW I am in the construction paper!

  2. Love this idea.. especially for the little ones! Something about cotton balls that make crafting so much more fun. I'm off to check out your bunny tail tutorial. :)

  7. Oh that's an awesome idea Lori Anne has you should do an ebook. What a lovely way to see the rainbow.
