Rainbow Craft


  • Wooden Rainbow
  • Paint, I used the standard rainbow colors red,orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, violet
  • Brush
  • Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
  • White Felt Balls


  • 4 Burlap Leaves
  • Paint


  • 2 Wooden Beads
  • Paint
  • Twine
  • Button


First, I painted the rainbow. I did not go in the correct order of colors, instead of starting with red I started with orange. I’m not a good painter and found it difficult to cover the inside well without getting the wrong color on the outer ridges. Using a small brush made this easier.

I hot glued three wool felt balls on the bottom of each side of the rainbow. You could also use cotton balls instead.

To make the butterfly I painted four burlap leaves. I twisted the leaves together two at a time and then twisted both pairs together. Once they are twisted together I wrapped the wire around the center and made antennas with the left over wire.

To make the bee I glued two wooden bees together and painted them yellow. I put some hot glue in the middle and used twine to make the wings and put a button on top.

Then I hot glued the butterfly and bee on the rainbow. This craft was so fun! Hope you give this a try!
