St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Rain Stick
Paper Towel Tubes
Black Glitter Foam
Gold Pipe Cleaners
Cut squares of foil large enough to wrap around the end of the paper towel tube. You want to make the foil about 3-4 layers thick.
Glue the foil in place and then secure it by wrapping masking tape around the end of the tube.
Add 2-3 spoonfuls of rice.
Repeat the steps above to seal the other end of the tube.
Cut a piece of black glitter foam long enough to wrap around the end of the tube. Glue the black glitter foam in place.
Cut a circle large enough to cover the end of the tube and glue in place. (refer to the photos)
Use a paintbrush to paint a rainbow pattern towards the other end of the tube.
Allow the paint to dry completely.
Glue cotton balls onto the end of the tube. Rip them apart a bit so that they aren’t so poofy.
Add some glue above the black glitter foam all the way around the tube.
Sprinkle gold glitter onto the glue and allow the glue to dry completely. (chunky glitter looks a lot like gold coins)
String gold bells onto a gold pipe cleaner. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the tube and glue in place towards the top of the black glitter foam piece.
Your St. Patrick’s Day rainmaker is complete. Go have some fun!
