DIY Paper Rainbow Brooch


You know how you’re supposed to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? Pink on Valentine’s Day? Orange on Halloween? The list goes on and on. Well, when are we supposed to wear rainbows? ALL THE TIME. I understand that it can be a bit difficult to wear a complete rainbow in one outfit. Unless you have this dress. In which case I am extremely jealous. But, for situations that a stunning, very expensive, rainbow dress wouldn’t be acceptable, you can wear this DIY paper rainbow brooch! A tiny touch of rainbow that you can put on just about everything!
