yarn-wrapped rainbow

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

Cut your rope into four sections to make your rainbow. The pieces will measure 18", 20", 22" and 24" [45.7 cm, 50.8 cm, 55.9 cm and 61 cm].

Step 2

Arrange the pieces in the shape of a rainbow with the shortest piece first out to the longest piece.

Step 3

Start with the inner most rope piece and measure about 3½" [9 cm] from one end. Add a dab of hot glue and place the yarn end for that color in the glue. Let set.

Step 4

Wrap the arch with the yarn. Work with the yarn directly from the skein. When you get to 3½" [9 cm] from the other end, add glue to secure the yarn. Trim yarn from skein.

Step 5

Repeat Steps 3-4 for each arch in the rainbow.

Step 6

Determine the front and back of your arches and align them together, face down, on your working surface to form your rainbow.

Step 7

Add a generous amount of hot glue along the ridges between the arches attaching them together.
TIP: Hold them firmly in place and allow the glue to set as you work around the arch.

Step 8

Cut a 4" [10.2 cm] piece of any color yarn. Shape the yarn piece into a loop and glue to the back to use as a hanger.

Step 9

Unravel the excess rope and trim so the ends are even.

Step 10

Make four pom-poms from the larger maker in the set. Follow the instructions on the package; then trim so they are even and have a nice round shape.

Step 11

Hot glue two pom-poms at the base of the yarn wrapping on each side.
