Hanging Cotton Ball Rainbow Craft
I love to see rainbows in the sky. In fact, they remind me of my dad. My parents live in New Zealand and I really miss them. Last year when my mum and dad were visiting me here in the UK we went on a trip to celebrate my uncle’s 40th birthday. He’s not much older than me.
Anyway, on our way home, we turned a corner and I saw the most beautiful rainbow I’ve ever seen in my life. It was as if it was right there in front of us and the were touching the ground.
The rainbow was stunning and every time I see one now I remember the good times with my parents. Today we have a fun and exciting cotton ball rainbow craft for kids. I am sure you will love this. Enjoy.

What You Will Need For Your Rainbow Craft
- White metal hanger
- Wire Snips
- Cotton Balls
- Red, yellow, green and blue paint
- White school glue
- Hot glue gun
- Red, yellow, green and blue ribbon
Let’s Make This Simple Rainbow Craft
You just want to leave the hanging part at the top, with a small section of wire on either side to use as support for your rainbow later on.
Make it as big as you like, but make sure that it is big enough so that your wire hanger does not stick out from behind it.
Cut out the rainbow shape.
There should be four cotton balls in each row.
Let the cotton ball rainbow sit and dry once you have layered them all on.
Use the colours yellow, green, red and blue.
You will need two pieces of ribbon of each colour.
Now you’re done. Hang your cotton ball ribbon rainbow and enjoy!
