How to Make a Tissue Paper Rainbow Craft Suncatcher for Kids
- Clear Con-tact paper
- Tissue Paper
- cotton balls
- paper printable of rainbow printed on card stock
- option clear tape
First, after printing out the free rainbow template printable , cut out a piece of contact paper that is the same size and the printable rainbow (8.5 x 11 in)
Next, take the backing off the contact paper and place it sticky side up on top of the print out of the rainbow. Tape it down with either 2 pieces of tape or contact paper.
Next, cut the 1 in tissue paper squares into thirds (approx .33 in pieces). Place the pieces in color order, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple on top of each line.
Then, put some cotton ball on the cloud part of the outline and press firmly. To finish I cute the extra contact paper off and place it on top of the rainbow.
I put the clouds on before I did the rainbow, either way works.
You could do that or skip putting the cotton balls on and just put another piece of contact paper on top and then glue the cotton balls on top.
Hang in a sunny window and enjoy you tissue paper rainbow suncatcher.
