For this craft, you’ll need:

  • A black paper cup – I found mine at the Dollar Tree
  • 1 piece of yellow tissue paper
  • pipe cleaners – one for each color of the rainbow, or most of the colors – I used red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple
  • A weight for the cup – I used candy, but you can use a little baggy of beans, rice, etc…
  • 3 cotton balls or white pom-poms
  • Scissors
  • Glue – I used a warm glue gun and glue sticks – Fabri-tac is another great glue that holds strong and acts quickly without needing a glue gun
  • Optional – A shamrock decoration for the front of the cup

Now:

  • Put the pipe cleaners in the order of the rainbow and place the ends down into the cup
  • Add your weight
  • Stuff the tissue paper into the cup
  • Use scissors to trim the pipe cleaners and add your white cotton balls or pom-poms to the end of the rainbow with glue
  • Add your decoration, and you’re done!
