St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Banner Decoration!


I am very pleased with how this beautiful decoration turned out. The transformation is pretty amazing actually. I started with just a plain old piece of cardboard and went from there. Here is what you need to make your own:

  • Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Glitter Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Paper

Here you have your plain old cardboard. Now just draw yourself a rainbow and clouds with a pencil so you can erase the lines easily. 


Cut out your rainbow.


Paint the entire rainbow white so you have a blank canvas to work with. The colors will look better if you do this instead of painting on plain cardboard. 


Paint your rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.


I used silver glitter glue and put a coat over the entire rainbow, it really brought out the color and now it is shiny, sparkly and pretty :)


Then to finish it all off I printed out this cute banner: http://www.hgtv.com/handmade/printable-banner-for-st-patricks-day/index.html and attached it using some green ribbon.

Ta da! I transformed a piece of regular old cardboard into this beautiful St. Patrick's Day decoration and you can to! My kids really love it and I am very proud of it. Enjoy!
