Rainbow Wall Hanging {tutorial} + more rainbow craft ideas

Good morning! It’s time for another edition of Team Creative Crafts. This month’s theme is rainbow! A few years ago my sister, Abby had a cute baby boy, her rainbow baby! She decorated his room using rainbows, of course! I made this adorable Rainbow Wall Hanging with lots of fun rainbow colored ribbon for the nursery. By the way, this wall hanging could also double as a clippie holder if you have a girl. After the ribbon wall hanging tutorial stick around for tons of other rainbow inspried ideas from Team Creative Crafts. Let’s get started! 🙂

You’ll need a few supplies:

Offray 1 & 1/2 inch Grosgrain Ribbon (red, torrid orange, maize, lemon grass, electric blue, regal purple & royal orchid)

thin plywood

jig saw

cloud pattern (or freehand a cloud shape)

white acrylic paint

paint brush

sawtooth hanger

sander & sandpaper

glue gun & glue

I used a cloud shape from Silhouette to cut out a huge cloud pattern in vinyl, & then I traced it onto my plywood with a pencil. Then I removed the vinyl. If you don’t have a Silhouette you can easily freehand a cloud. It’s a pretty simple shape. Make the bottom flat & then add some puffiness to the sides & top. 😉 Then cut out your cloud shape using a jig saw. Be sure to be careful & use all safety precautions and wear your safety glasses. Sand your cloud. I tried to round the edges as I sanded. Then I painted the cloud white & let it dry.

Next, I hot glued the ribbon to the back of my cloud. You might notice my ribbons are not in the right order. Oops! When I flipped it around to hang up my ROYGBIV was going the wrong direction. Yep! So make sure you put them in reverse order as you glue because when you flip it around they will be correct. 😉

After I got my ribbon in the right order, I hot glued a piece of ribbon along the top to finish it off.

Then I hot glued a hanger to the back as well. (The plywood was too thin to nail one on!)

Next I trimmed my ribbon. I liked my ribbon pretty long. It measured about 3 feet. I love, love how it turned out! So cute! My little model is pretty cute, too! 🙂
