{diy} rainbow cloud garland ... ♥

the other day we were in walmart 
and i saw these blue polka dot paper plates in the clearance section
bluuuuuue pooooolka dooooots (zombie voice)
 it's like a magnetic force ... pulling me to the polka dots

so we got them. and i thought about this garland i saw on pinterest
... it's from a cute blog called a little delightful

but those are suns, and these plates looked like clouds 
but rainbows are like all buddy buddy with clouds too right?? so we went with it.

it's one of the crafts that i put down on our summer bucket list
and the girls were excited to make it

it was really simple, we just cut the plates in half
then punched holes along the curved edge

then went to town with the rainbow part
they put ribbon & twine on some

 fabric & yarn on some too ... i like how they look all wonky :)

we strung them all on some twine and hung it up in the craft room
across the top of the window.

summer crafts are the best ♥ 
happy crafting
