One of my favorite themes for St. Patrick’s day is rainbows, and I always love to come up with fun little rainbow projects to make for my kids this time of year. Today, I’m sharing a fun rainbow frame made with just a handful of supplies that is perfect for displaying a favorite photo, or even a St. Patrick’s Day printable or saying. This project features one of my favorite new finds–Darice foil tape! Read on for all the details of this fun St. Patrick’s Day craft.
- 6 Packages Darice Foil Tape: Red, Copper, Green, Turquoise, Royal Blue and Purple
- Darice 4 x 6 Unfinished Craftwood Frame
Starting along the top edge of the frame, apply the foil tape in rows in the order of the rainbow: first red, then copper, green, turquoise, royal blue and purple. I found three strips of each color was the perfect amount to cover the entire surface of the frame.
This tape mimics the look of metallic foil, because because it applies like regular tape instead of having to be brushed on, it is so easy to use, and so versatile! It gives so much terrific texture to a plain frame like this one.
This St. Patrick’s Day craft rainbow foil frame would be such a fun project to make with children, or to do for a craft night with friends. This same technique could also be used to add a rainbow of color to other surfaces, too: signs, banners, and more! I hope you’re inspired to add some whimsical color to your St. Patrick’s Day this year.
