It's time to celebrate Pride! Show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community all month long with these exciting and colorful crafts. Learn to make bracelets and DIY shoe designs for your local Pride parade, or make some simple rainbow decorations to hang up around the house. These crafts will keep you celebrating pride long after the parade has passed!
Straw Blowing Rainbow Art
Sometimes a clean design looks better, but with this straw blowing rainbow art, it's best to color outside the lines. Make this rainbow to celebrate Pride by swapping your paintbrushes for straws! Simply pour the paint on some cardstock like you would to make a rainbow and then use a straw to blow it all around the paper. No matter how many you make, each one will have its own unique look.
Rainbow Ribbon Magic Wand
Add a little magic to your Pride celebration with these rainbow ribbon fairy wands. To get the perfect star shape, Rhythms of Play uses a star cookie cutter to trace out the shape on a piece of felt with a fabric marker. If you have other cookie cutters around, like hearts or flowers, feel free to trace those shapes as well and turn them into wands. Once you've got your shapes all set, finish up the wand with a bright trail of rainbow streamers.
Rainbow Pride Bracelets
Show off your Pride spirit with an embroidery bracelet made just for the occasion. Head on over to Two Of Wands where you'll find step-by-step instructions for three different Pride-themed bracelets. When Pride is over, take your newfound friendship bracelet making skills and put them to use all summer long using whatever color strings you would like.
DIY Tie Dye Tapestries
Turn your room into one giant Pride celebration with this DIY tie dye tapestry. Want to know the secret to getting that perfect tie dye rainbow? It's all in the folding. Head on over to Handmade Charlotte and follow the instructions to get the perfect lines. Once you've got everything lined up, add in all the bright colors. The best part about this craft will be unwrapping the tapestry and watching your rainbow design come to life.
Mini Wooden Rainbow Stackers
Turn your favorite childhood stacking toy into a trendy craft for Pride with these rainbow stackers. These little rainbows are just like the mini version of the rainbow stacking toys your little ones might love to play with but are more suited for your older kids. To make these stackers, you'll have to make bendable wood. Yes, I know what you're thinking, wood doesn't exactly bend — but Handmade Charlotte takes you through the process step by step. Remember to bring your patience for this one — the wood needs to soak for a while.
Handprint Rainbow Painting
The colors in the rainbow Pride flag have a bigger meaning than being just a rainbow. Each color represents an important trait such as life (red), healing (orange), and harmony and peace (blue). Show your little ones the meaning behind each color while they create their own rainbow using their hands. As you paint on each color, have an open discussion about the different meanings of the colors and how they all come together to form a beautiful rainbow.
Paper Strip Rainbows
Looking for a quick craft to get in the Pride spirit? We've got you covered with this rainbow craft. All you need is about 10 minutes and a bunch of construction paper, scissors, and a stapler to put the whole thing together. Since it's so fast to make, make sure to create a bunch. That way, you can hang them up around the house and in your windows to put your Pride decorations on display.
Rainbow Shaving Cream Marbled Art
Shaving cream and craft paint is the pairing you never knew you needed. The two work together — in a rather messy way — to create a marbled design, allowing for one-of-a-kind works of art. This month, use that same technique to create rainbow art for Pride. Head on over to Hello Wonderful and follow the tutorial to make a rainbow in the shaving cream. If you want to switch it up, use different colors to make prints and then cut out designs from the marbled paper to make Pride cards and art of your very own.
DIY Sharpie Tie Dye Shoes
Show up to your community Pride parade in style with a custom pair of rainbow shoes. To get started, you'll need a simple pair of white canvas sneakers, a bunch of different colored permanent markers, and some rubbing alcohol. Once you've got your supplies ready to go, it's time to get designing. Stay simple and go with the basic rainbows, or bring out your inner Coco Chanel and craft an elaborate design. Then spray on the rubbing alcohol and watch the colors blend together. Grab more ideas for designs over on Fun Loving Families.
Finally, an answer to the age-old question: "What would I look like if I were a dog?"
