To make a St. Patrick’s Day variation:
Paint in bottom cardboard gold and let dry. This is the area that will only be seen when the rainbow is removed. Paint a metallic gold stripe along the bottom of each color of the rainbow as a hint to the golden treasure that lays on the other side of the rainbow. Let dry.

Enjoy!
