Draw your cloud onto the white paper by starting with a straight vertical line of 20 cm.

Now draw 3 shapes parts of a cloud on top of the line.

Now repeat that again and for a third time - choose which cloud you would like to use for your project.

Attach each raindrop onto the tread (more than 1 raindrop can be glued onto 1 thread) with the glue. Attach each thread onto the back of the cloud.

Attach a thread onto the top back of the cloud and it is ready to be hung up!
