How to Make it:
Place one set of six rainbow colored craft sticks on 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 Cloud Pattern Sheet HERE. 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. Tip: If you don’t want to sew this cloud, you can also use the hot glue gun to glue the two pieces of felt together.
Stuff the sewn or hot glued cloud with the polyester pillow stuffing.
Insert the craft stick rainbow into the cloud and secure on the bottom and then the top with the glue gun and glue sticks.
Trace cheek shape onto pink felt twice and cut out with scissors. TIP: Cut out inside the lines, so you have a clean finished project. Using the guide on the pattern sheet, attach cheeks and wiggle eyes with glue gun.
Carefully draw a half circle spanning from cheek to cheek with the permanent black marker.
Measure and cut a ten-inch length of bakers twine.
Knot twine at each end and secure to the back of the cloud with the glue gun and glue sticks.
A great family fun craft activity and the perfect addition for a rainbow party with the kiddos!
