Crystal Raincloud

I’m loving this fun crystal raincloud! I had this idea way back in January, and it has taken me this long to put it together. But this little raincloud mobile with crystal raindrops was worth the wait, don’t you think?

This raincloud was easy to make, and I was able to use up scraps of jewelry chain I had in my stash! I make tons of fast jewelry crafts, and often end up with leftover bits of chain.

To make your own crystal raincloud, you’ll need:
Lace up Cloud from Eye Connect Crafts
Crystal beads (I used ones similar to these)
Necklace chain pieces & jump rings (or buy some chain)
Jewelry Pliers (check out my video for using jewelry pliers)
Poly-fil
Glue (I used Aleene’s tacky glue)
scissors
string supplies-for-crystl-rainclo

Start by adding a crystal to one end of the chain.

attach crystal

Loop in one hole on the cloud, and out the other.

string through holes

Then add a crystal to the other end of the chain. Keep adding all the way across. It has an odd number of holes, so I just left one empty. No biggie.

all the way across

Punch a hole at the top and add a string.

add string to top

Add a generous amount of glue.

layer of glue

Press on a handful of Polyfil.

add polyfil

Trim around the top, because this cloud has such a cute shape!

trim excess Polyfil

You can add Polyfil to the other side if you like, but I left mine natural. Hang and enjoy!

  1. This is sooo cute!!! I love the crystals as the raindrops. 😀

  2. Love the addition of the fluff and how it makes it look 3D! How did it stick? I never thought of that! Great idea! And the crystals are a lovely addition too! Do they cast rainbows? I <3 rainbow makers!!!

    • Yes, in the light we get some pretty rainbows. Because I used plenty of glue, the Polyfil stays put very well. 🙂

  3. This is so adorable! I can imagine how beautiful those crystals look when the light shines through. Love the fluff! 🙂

  4. In the picture the cloud is blue-gray. How did you color it, or is it actually white?
