yarn-wrapped rainbow wall hanging

Be the talk of your friends and make this Yarn-Wrapped Rainbow! Have fun picking out colors to match your home décor!
Step 1

First, cut rope for each color in your rainbow:

  • Two 2"x 24"
  • Two 2"x 26"
  • Two 2"x 28"
  • Two 2"x 30"
  • Two 2"x 32"
  • Two 2"x 34"
  • Two 2"x 36"
  • Two 2"x 38"
Step 2

Next, cut the following wire pieces:

  • One 1"x 16"
  • One 1"x 18"
  • One 1"x 20"
  • One 1"x 22"
  • One 1"x 24"
  • One 1"x 26"
  • One 1"x 28"
  • One 1"x 30"
Step 3

Starting with the inner most color of your rainbow, lay the two pieces of 2"x 24" together in the shape of an arch. Tape the pieces together where you want to start and end wrapping your yarn. Be sure to keep the shape of your arch.

Step 4

Now, lay the 1"x 16" of wire on the ridge between the two rope pieces; then, add a generous amount of hot glue along the ridge attaching the rope pieces and wire together.

Step 5

Repeat Steps 3-4 for each arch in the rainbow.
TIP: As you work, be sure to lay the arches together to make sure they will fit snugly together when assembled.

Step 6

Wrap each arch, from tape to tape, with yarn. Use hot glue periodically to help secure yarn in place.

Step 7

Remove the tape for both ends of each arch. Trim wire ends, if needed, so they aren't visible.

Step 8

Determine the front and back of your arches and assemble them together, face down, on your working surface.

Step 9

Again, add a generous amount of hot glue along the ridges between the arches attaching them together.

Step 10

Cut a 4" piece of any color yarn. Shape the yarn piece into a loop and glue to the back to use as a hanger.

Step 11

Trim the ends of the excess yarn so they are even but leave a length long enough to hang down from the yarn-wrapped rainbow.
