St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Craft

9:00 AM

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, I wanted to share the craft that our classroom is doing. We made a doorknob decoration that involves a rainbow chain with a pot of gold at the end. Keep reading if you want to see how to make this for yourself!

What You'll Need:

- Construction Paper {black, orange, blue, red, green, purple, yellow}
- Gold glitter {optional}
- Glue
- Scissors

How To Make This Project

Step 1: 
Begin by taking all colors except black and cutting out two strips that are about 2 inches wide. These will be the rings of your rainbow.

Step 2:
With the black construction paper, cut out your pot shape. Keep in mind the width should be slightly wider than the colored strips.

Step 3:
Take your yellow construction paper and begin to cut out circles for your gold coins. You can make as many of these as you want, I made 10.

Step 4:
Once you have your coins cut out, apply a layer of glue on top and add your gold glitter for some extra shine. This step is optional.

Step 5:
Once your coins are fully done, begin layering them onto your pot. Do this step in whatever fashion you prefer.

Step 6: 
With your colored strips, begin to roll them just slightly where they overlap and then glue to attach and make a ring. If the glue does not work for you, simply use tape instead.

Step 7:
Once you have your rings done, begin to attach them in whatever order or design you prefer. I taped them together, altering the rotation for every other color. I also chose to put them in the order of the rainbow. Once you have your rainbow done, carefully attach the pot of gold. Make sure that this sits in a way that it can be fully supported by the rings. I attached mine against the last two rings.

Make sure it is fully secure before hanging as it may easily come apart if not dried or attached firmly. Also keep in mind, the amount of rings you need to make this floor length depends on the size of your door so adjust accordingly.

I hope you enjoyed this simple craft, and if you missed what we made last year to celebrate, then click here to see how we made Leprechaun's.
