How to Make

  1. Take the back off of a wooden frame and put to one side. Then paint the frame light blue and leave to dry.
  2. Take the piece of paper that comes with the frame and lightly draw out a rainbow shape with a pencil.
  3. Begin to stick the buttons onto the paper with gluedots, using your drawing as a guide for the shape. Start with red at the top, then yellow, then blue and then pink. Add another colour if you have room.
  4. Put the piece of paper into the frame and then reattach the wooden backing to hold your picture in place.

Top Tip

Choose buttons that are similar in size to leave less gaps in your rainbow.
