Paper Plate Umbrella Craft
by Miss Leyuna at the West Elkton Library
- Paper plate
- Pipe cleaner
- A straw
- Hot glue gun (adult supervision is advised)
- Cut a paper plate so that there are 6 pie sections. Cut so that there is an uncut circle in the center.
- Poke a hole through the center with a pipe cleaner and pull the pipe cleaner back out.
- Paint the bottom of the plate. Paint each section a different color. Let dry.
Using a glue gun, glue the edge of one piece of the pie. Overlap it slightly with the next pie segment. Continue all the way around.
Poke the pipe cleaner through the top again. Form a loop at the top. Push a straw over the pipe cleaner until it reaches the top. Curve the bottom of the pipe cleaner to form the handle.
