“Rainbows are everywhere at the moment, particularly in home décor. If you’d like to add a splash of colour to your home then why not have a go at this take on a rope rainbow? It’s a slightly smaller version that uses lengths of string instead of rope. The finished piece could be added to a lampshade or cushion or simply hung on the wall.” Sarah Jackman Read
Trim ten lengths of string 35cm long then tie red wool 4cm up from one end. Wrap the wool around the string leaving 4cm uncovered at the other end then cut the wool and glue the end in place.
Trim ten lengths of string 32cm, wrap yellow wool around them then repeat with green wool and string trimmed to 30cm. Trim six lengths of string 27cm, wrap blue wool around them then repeat with purple wool and string trimmed to 25cm.
Lay each piece out on a foam mat with the longest at the top and the shortest at the bottom. Bend to form a rainbow shape, hold in place with pins then glue together.
Die-cut or cut out four clouds from white felt. Lay two together then hand-sew around the edge leaving a gap. Fill with stuffing, sew up the gap then adhere to one end of the rainbow. Repeat with the other two clouds and adhere to the other end.
Glue a loop a string to the back at the top then trim the loose ends to neaten.
