What you’ll need to make this Easy Rainbow Paper Plate Cotton ball Craft

How to make a Cotton ball Craft
Use the ruler and pencil to measure 1 inch wide strips of construction paper in each of the rainbow colors.
Cut out the strips. (You can do this for each individual color, or stack all of the paper and cut at once.)
Cut a paper plate in half. Set the other half aside, you will only need one half for this project.
Line up the strips according to the order of the rainbow.
Pour a little glue at the end of each strip.
Set the paper plate on top of the glue, flat side down on the glue. Allow the glue to dry. (You may have to straighten some of the strips of paper after securing to the glue to make sure they are straight.)
Glue the cotton balls on the paper plate half.
Continue this until the paper plate half is covered.
Allow glue to dry.
Finally, Display the rainbow!
