Rainbow Inspirations for St. Patrick’s Day

One of my goals this year is to break my habit of too much pinning, not enough crafting.  My resolution: pick one fun project every week and do it!  This week I went looking for St. Patrick’s Day rainbows, and chose this festive fruit rainbow with a banana pot of gold from Homemade Serenity.

I decided to swap out the mini marshmallows for a whipped cream cloud, since I thought that would be fun for dipping.  (Turns out it was, but it was even more fun to eat the whipped cream with a spoon.)   It was a good thing I picked a forgiving project — my little leprechauns were so impatient to eat I barely had time to photograph, let alone arrange the rainbow nicely.

Result: Success!  I’ll definitely try this again, and with vanilla yogurt instead of whipped cream this could become part of our regular snack rotation.

Of course I couldn’t pick just one project to admire… here are a few more I have on my list.

This sweet & subtle pussy willow rainbow from green crafter Betz White is incredibly simple to make and looks like a million bucks! The only materials required are branches, colorful felt balls, and glue.

Fill this cute rainbow pot with some gold-wrapped candy for an easy and attractive St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece. After the holiday, plant a flower and voila! You have a gardening project and a welcome touch of spring. (From Marie LeBaron of Make and Takes.)

And of course no round-up of rainbow inspiration would be complete without Whisk Kid’s famous rainbow cake!  And don’t miss Kaitlin’s appearance on the Martha Stewart Show where she and Martha demo her technique.
