The seventies have really snuck up on us with this rainbow trend I’ve been seeing all over the internet, Pinterest, and even at Target. I don’t know about you, but I love it. Especially for my little boy’s nursery I’ve been busy working on. I saw some cute fiber rainbows for sale on Etsy, but I decided I had time to make one for myself, so I’d like to share my process with you all.
— M A T E R I A L S —
A minimum of 6mm Macrame cording/rope
Some type of wire. I used copper 2 mm wire because it was nice and sturdy, but still easy to work with
Yarn in various colors. I purchased 5 small spools from Michael’s in various colors
(Optional) Comb to brush your fringe
— S T E P S —
Cut your cord to an appropriate length to shape the largest part of your rainbow
Wrap a length of wire around your cord leaving out a few inches on either end for the fringe
Wrap your first length of yarn around your rope, covering the wire completely and leaving a few inches out on either end.
Shape your rope into an arch or rainbow shape.
Repeat steps 1-3 four times, fitting each length of rope inside the last one.
Sew all 5 length of rope together.
Tie an overhand knot on each end.
Trim your ends to ensure they’re nice and even.
Brush out your fringe.
Hang it somewhere pretty!
