Create a magical pot of gold rainbow with this scrape painting technique for a fun St. Patricks Rainbow Craft!

We love a fun rainbow craft and this St. Patricks Rainbow Craft is super fun for kids to create their own pot of gold rainbow! Scrape painting is always a hit and is so easy to set up. Read more below on how easy it is to set up this magical St. Patrick’s’ Day craft! You could pair it with these delicious Lucky Charms pancakes for a rainbow-filled day! 

Make sure to print out our FREE printable template below with cute leprechaun at the end!

How do you make this St. Patricks Rainbow Craft?

You’ll need some cardstock or mixed media paper. Regular copy or printer paper will be too thin to absorb the paint. First print out our free template below. Then add a dab of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple paint (we used acrylic) along the pot of gold. 

Use a piece of cardboard (an old credit card or squeegee will work too!) and gently and slowly scrape towards the leprechaun making an arch as you go along. If you mess up, don’t worry! Add a dab more of paint and fill it in with a paintbrush or your cardboard scrap.
