This cute rainbow paper cloud craft is a fun rainbow project for kids! You can make it into a cute garland to decorate a rainbow party too!

I know St. Patrick’s Day snuck up on us quickly this year! But if you’re looking for one last rainbow craft to make your day extra lucky this rainbow paper cloud is a super easy one! You can make one cloud as a rainbow craft or decoration. Or add a string to hang outside or on the window! This rainbow cloud craft is sure to brighten up any day! They’re super fun to practice fine motor skills and for kids to help cut strips of rainbow paper.

What do you need to make this rainbow paper cloud?

All you need are colored craft papers in the colors of the rainbow. Construction paper works too! You’ll need some cotton for the clouds, scissors, a stapler and some glue to add the clouds. If you want to make a garland you’ll need something sharp to punch through the paper (the edge of scissors or a craft knife works) plus some string to thread through. Wouldn’t it be cute to make a bunch of little rainbows all in a garland row?

What can you do with your rainbow paper craft?

I love the versatility of this rainbow project because it’s so versatile! You can make them smaller to add as gift tags to a present. Larger as cheerful home decor, or as we mentioned, decorative garlands to hang for a rainbow or St. Patrick’s Day party! 

Rainbow Paper Cloud – Materials:

  • Colored craft paper or construction paper in rainbow colors
  • White cotton balls
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Craft knife and string (if making into a garland)

Materials

Instructions

  1. Cut out 5 strips in the color of the rainbow (we omitted orange as 5 strips made a nicer arch but that's up to you). The strips should be descending in size with red the largest and purple the smallest.
  2. Layer the strips over each other with the largest at the top and staple both ends.
  3. Cut your cotton balls into fluffy clouds and hot glue to each end of the rainbow.
  4. Cut a hole through the first arch in the middle and add a string, securing with a knot top at the bottom if you want to make a dangling rainbow garland.
