Tomorrow is finally March. We can kiss February goodbye & start the countdown to the spring. I feel as if it is all that I can think about. I am over the cold & snow and am longing for the outdoors. The snow may melt in the spring, but it is not without its weather challenges too. April showers bring May flowers & the showers certainly do fall. Here is a cute umbrella craft that you can do to welcome in the spring & its raindrops.
Paper plate umbrella craft
All you will need is a paper plate, paint, a pipe cleaner, a straw & glue
Cut a paper plate so that there are 6 pie sections. Cut so that there is an uncut circle in the center. Poke a hole through the center with a pipe cleaner & pull the cleaner back out.
Paint the bottom side of the plate. Paint each segment in a different color. Let dry.
Using a glue gun, glue the edge of one piece of the pie. Overlap it slightly with the next pie segment. Continue all the way around.
Poke the pipe cleaner through the top again. Form a loop & push the point back through the center again, keeping the loop on top & the end on the inside of the umbrella. Push a straw of the same color over the pipe cleaner until it reaches the top. Add a dab of hot glue to the inside center. Let it cool for about 30 seconds & then push the straw into the glue. Curve the bottom of the pipe cleaner to form the handle.
Share your umbrella with a friend.
