Charlotte loves looking for rainbows after a good Spring rainstorm. With this adorable, simple craft, she can have one with her whenever she likes.


  • Cloud Template (available below)
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Newspaper/scrap paper
  • Craft glue (we used Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue)
  • Paintbrush
  • White glitter
  • 5/8-inch grosgrain ribbon in rainbow colors
  • Ruler
  • Painter’s Tape


Print Cloud Template (available below) onto cardstock and cut out with scissors.

Cover work surface with newspaper. Using a paintbrush, apply a thin layer of craft glue to desired side of cloud. Sprinkle with generous amount of glitter and shake off excess onto work surface. Let dry completely.

Cut two 12-inch pieces of each grosgrain ribbon color. Flip cloud over onto work surface. Cut a piece of painter’s tape slightly shorter than the length of cloud. Place tape in desired location on cloud to use as a guide for the ribbon. Arrange cut ends of ribbon along tape in a rainbow pattern. Cut another piece of painter’s tape slightly longer than first piece. Carefully place along top of ribbon to secure to cloud.


ORANGE & FIELD TIP: We covered our cloud with glitter because Charlotte loves anything sparkly. If you prefer not to use glitter, A cute handrawn face or googly wiggle eyes with a mouth would be an adorable substitute.
