Minimal & Boho Nursery

At 39 weeks pregnant, and what some would say is the very last minute, I finally finished my nursery. Of course, I could totally spend more time and money perfecting and adding things, but I know I should be content with what I have so far, especially since I am a first time Mom and simply have no idea what’s to come. I’m sure once our sweet boy is here we will be changing things up, but for now we are really happy and content with this simple space for our little one.

DIY Rope Rainbow

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 —

  1. A minimum of 6mm Macrame cording/rope

  2. Some type of wire. I used copper 2 mm wire because it was nice and sturdy, but still easy to work with

  3. Yarn in various colors. I purchased 5 small spools from Michael’s in various colors

  4. Scissors

  5. (Optional) Comb to brush your fringe


— S T E P S —

  1. Cut your cord to an appropriate length to shape the largest part of your rainbow

  2. Wrap a length of wire around your cord leaving out a few inches on either end for the fringe

  3. Wrap your first length of yarn around your rope, covering the wire completely and leaving a few inches out on either end.

  4. Shape your rope into an arch or rainbow shape.

  5. Repeat steps 1-3 four times, fitting each length of rope inside the last one.

  6. Sew all 5 length of rope together.

  7. Tie an overhand knot on each end.

  8. Trim your ends to ensure they’re nice and even.

  9. Brush out your fringe.

  10. Hang it somewhere pretty!
