April flowers, bring...

It has been unusually chilly and drip-droppy here in SoCal as of late, especially following a brilliantly warm April full of blooms. To embrace this bit of drizzle I've come up with a little rain drop craft made from security envelopes.

It's an incredibly simple craft that will be easy to do with your little ones. Just use the raindrop template (found at the end of the post - right click and save), trace it atop the envelope, and then cut and apply to either fine art paper, canvas, wood, you name it, using some sort of adhesive or acrylic medium, Mod Podge, etc.

Now sit back and enjoy your little piece of spring rain as you look forward to summer days just around the corner.

  1. How cute is that?! All my security envelopes are grey or black usually but I think that works with raindrops too. Thank you for the little template.
