Mini Clothespin Rainbow Necklace - closeup of woman wearing the necklaceI've made this necklace for my little niece because she adores rainbows. It doubles as an interactive game, as you can remove the clothespins and clip them back on in any order. She will be learning the colour order of the rainbow while putting together her own necklace. This is a great craft for kids, and a great little gift!

  • mini clothespins
  • nail polish or paint (colours of the rainbow)
  • tweezers (optional)
  • clear coat sealant (optional)
