St. Patrick's Day Craft: Rainbow Favor Cups

Having a St. Patrick's Day party or play date? Maybe just want to surprise your favorite Leprechaun?
How about this cute favor cup!

See how I made this...


Foam Craft Sheets
Recycled Snack/Fruit Cup or similar
Cotton Balls
Foam Craft Glue
Black Tissue Paper & Mod Podge or Black Paint

Cut foam sheets into 1/4 inch strips.
I used a paper trimmer.

Glue strips together. Place into a container to shape and dry. I found a loaf pan works. Make sure one end is lined up and straight. The other side will be uneven because of the arch. After rainbow is dry, trim the uneven end.

Meanwhile...paint or decoupage your snack bowl black. I prefer the look of tissue and Mod Podge.
Let dry.
Glue cotton balls around rim. Let Dry.
Glue dried rainbow to top. Glue extra cotton balls round base to support rainbow.

Fill with chocolate gold coins!

Have fun crafting with your kids!

Materials for this project can be found at Amazon
