Personal Wall Rainbow

June 18, 2020 2 min read

In honor of Pride Month, we've created this super cute wall hanging to spread some positive vibes and creativity. 

What you will need:

Lace Weight Yarn (I used DGY Lace Weight in Exotic Rainbow) 

  • Wooden Wreath Ring 
  • Scissors 
  • Paint (optional) 
  • Fake Flowers (optional) 
  • Glue (optional) 

An unpainted wooden hoop is laying ontop of a brown artist's board that is heavily stained with paint. To the top of the hoop sits a small bottle of paint, a pair of scissors, and a hank of multicolored yarn.

Step One: (optional) 

I decided that I didn't like the plain wood of my wreath ring, so I decided to paint it white. 

The plain wooden hoop is being held against the paint-stained artist's board. A blue paint brush is applying white paint onto the unpainted wooden hoop.

Step Two: 

Now you need to wind the yarn into a ball (if you're yarn isn't already caked or balled). With our lace weight, I've found the best way to wind it is to unskein the hank, toss it over my knees, and unwind that way :) 

A person is using their knees to unwind their rainbow yarn. The unwound-skein is around their knees and the person is showing the small ball of yarn that they are winding in their hand to the bottom left of the picture.

Step Three:

Once your yarn is unwound, cut the yarn into strips. You can choose to cut the yarn based on length or color. I cut the yarn into specific color combinations to create the rainbow effect. I like to cut the yarn and then sort them into neat little piles for easy access while I'm tying the yarn to the wooden circle. 

A pile of yarn is being separated into different colored piles. There is one pile of orange-teal, another of yellow-green, another of blue-orange, another of purple-pink  and finally one of pink-purple yarn strands.

Step Four: 

Now that your yarn is cut, you can start tying the yarn to your wooden circle. Taking 4 strands at a time, tie a simple double knot around the wooden circle.

Step Five: 

Continue tying your yarn strands around your wooden circle. The more strands you use, the fuller the wall hanging will look. 

A white hoop with muticolored yarn tied to the bottom of the loop is resting against a brown artist's board. The artist's board is covered in paint marks and old painters tape.

Step Six: (optional) 

Once you've added all the yarn that you'd like, you can add fake flowers, leaves, or other decorations to cover up the knots if you don't like the rustic look (I've done this on another wall hanging that I did) 

Another finished hoop, this one Halloween themed with a black hoop, spooky flowers, and orange and black yarn is hanging off the bottom half of the hoop, is now hanging on an off-white wall.

If you don't want to add on anything else to your wall hanging, you will still have a gorgeous piece of art that you made with love to hang on your wall! :) The finished white hoop, with multicolored yarn hanging off the bottom half of the hoop, is now hanging on an off-white wall.

Happy crafting!
