Hanging Rainbow

Who doesn't love a rainbow? I guess it must be all the happy colors together in one place. For St Patrick's Day every year, we love to make rainbows in all sorts of ways. This one we did with watercolors and ribbon. My five-year-old thought it was meant to be hung out on our big tree for all to see!

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Emma gathered a few things and asked if I would cut a rainbow out of some watercolor paper. I liked where this was going and also cut a few shamrocks for her.

  • Step 2

    She painted the rainbow and shamrock cut-outs. Watercolors are our favorite way to paint. They have such a nice soft look and blend so nicely together.

  • Step 3

    When Emma was done painted we taped ribbon under each color of the rainbow and some in the center to hold the green shamrocks.

  • Done!

    We used a pipe cleaner through the top of the rainbow to hang. It came out really beautiful and was the perfect way to celebrate St Patrick's Day.
