Carefully lower the pipe cleaner rainbow into the solution so it is hanging in the solution, but is not touching sides or bottom using a stirng attached to the top of the egg. The borax and water solution must cover the entire egg craft. Now wrap end around a craft stick and set on top of the jar to hold in place.
