St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Mobile Craft

Here's a really original and simple idea for a modern looking rainbow mobile. Also great for St. Patrick's Day. The mobile pictured uses construction paper strips. This is a good project to use scrap paper strips you're probably saving already. Or, I also like the idea of using craft sticks(Popsicle sticks). You can buy colored craft sticks or paint your own.


  • construction paper in rainbow colors or craft sticks(Popsicle sticks) in rainbow colors
  • string or white thread
  • 2.5 inch Styrofoam ball
  • gold glitter
  • glue
  • tape
  • scissors


  1. Cut thin rectangular strips from paper in rainbow colors. The mobile pictured used 8.5x1 inch strips. Or use craft sticks.
  2. Brush glue all over the Styrofoam ball and cover in glitter. Allow to dry.
  3. Tape the strips or sticks along a piece of string or white thread in the order of the rainbow.The mobile pictured used 4 strips for each color.  Leave about an inch between each strip. Leave a generous amount of extra string at both ends.
  4. Thread the needle on the purple end and push all the way through the center of the gold glitter ball. Tie the bottom.
  5. Hang the other end up.
