How to Make a Paper Plate Rainbow

in steempress •  19 days ago


This paper plate rainbow is amazingly simple to make and would look great hanging in a child's bedroom room on the wall or on the back of their door. And because they can make it themselves it'll be a one of those fun kids crafts they'll be really proud of.

You could also hang it near a window and let it catch the breeze, although you might want to replace the tissue paper strips with colored ribbon for added durability.

Anyway, let's get started and if you get stuck just watch the step-by-step video at the end of this tutorial.
