Really did not like the pinching as a child; but, I do like to wear green and have used a lot of green in my crocheting recently to make hats. In addition, when I was a kid I love wear my Irish button which had a different say then below.

Pony Bead Rainbow
Materials: 1 brick of Styrofoam,1 each purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red chenille stems, 15 purple pony beads, 18 blue pony beads,23 green pony beads,27 yellow pony beads,32 orange pony beads,36 red pony beads, and Bag of cotton balls
String pony beads onto chenille stems, matching the colors. (i.e. string green pony beads on green chenille, purple pony beads on purple chenille, etc)
Start with the purple beaded stem. Center the beads on the stem and trim the ends of the stem leaving about 2” on each end.
Find the center of the Styrofoam block and insert the two chenille ends into the brick, forming an arch (see photo example here). Hint: use one of the pieces of chenille that you cut off to create the holes first, pull them out then insert the beaded chenille into the hole.
Repeat step 3 for each beaded stem, in the rainbow sequence (next is blue, green, yellow, orange, and red).
Glue cotton balls all around the bottom of the rainbow to form clouds. Cover the Styrofoam brick with cotton balls.
When cotton balls and glue are dry, stretch and gently pull the cotton balls to cover any exposed Styrofoam edges.
