How to Create a Kawaii Rainbow from Craft Sticks

Sharing is caring!

To celebrate CRAFTWEEK, I will teach how to create a Kawaii rainbow from craft sticks

I have been rainbow addicted since the sixth grade.  The year was 1977 and my favorite piece of clothing was a pair of rainbow embroidered bell-bottom jeans.  The colorful stitching went up one leg, arced across my backside and down the other leg.   A hand-me-down from my older sister and I loved them more than any piece of clothing either before or since.

I was so hip, so grown-up and totally sophisticated.  The envy of all my friends!

I balled like a baby the day I had to admit that my favorite rainbow jeans had become the dreaded high waters.  My Mom gently explained they would make another little girl very happy.

Ever since rainbow has been my favorite color!  And what better way to kick off CRAFTWEEK then with a fun, quick and easy rainbow craft!

Here's how to create a Craft Stick Rainbow for CRAFTWEEK:



Gather all materials and protect your work surface.

Materials needed to make a Rainbow Creatively Beth #creativelybeth #rainbow #craftweek2020 #craftsticks #kidscraft

Place one set of six rainbow-colored craft sticks on the work surface in a chevron pattern.  Attach a scrap piece of paper to the craft sticks with the glue gun and glue sticks.  Then attach the second set of rainbow craft sticks.

Download, print and cut out RAINBOW CRAFT STICK PATTERNS   Trace cloud shape onto white felt twice and cut out with scissors.  TIP:  Cut out inside the lines, so you have a clean, finished project.

Line up the two white felt cloud shapes and sew together with the embroidery floss and needle using a running stitch.  Leave an opening wide enough to fit the rainbow craft sticks but continue the running stitch on the top layer of felt for decoration.
