Rainbows are having a moment, and rightly so – they’re symbolic, beautiful and colourful, and the latest rainbow trend to hit nurseries is rope rainbow wall hangings. And the best part is, you can make them yourself.
For a basic rope rainbow wall hanging you’ll need thick rope, thread or yarn, wire, cotton and ribbon. However, there are a few variations, including making a giant version using pool noodles! Once you’ve got the hang of how to make one, all you need is time (they do take a bit of patience) and inspiration.
