Week 4 of lockdown.. what a journey we have been on together.
We now live in a world where we only get dressed up to put the bins out,
Where a zoom quiz every other night is completely acceptable,
Where we actually get to know our neighbours,
and where rainbows became a beautiful symbol of hope.
We love seeing all the rainbows hanging in people’s windows, it’s such an uplifting and hopeful reminder that we are all in this together .
With all this spare time on our hands, we have been making our own little rainbows and wanted to share with you all an easy peasy guide to making your own.
These are really fun and simple to make, all you need is:
2 metres rope, more if you want to make a bigger rainbow
5 different coloured wools
2 metres of wire
Lay out the rope on the table, folding the it back and forth, until you've got 5 rows.
These should be gradually smaller as you work from top to bottom.
Cut the rope at each bend, so you have 5 lengths of rope getting gradually smaller from top to bottom. Next bend the lengths of rope together to create the shape of your rainbow. At this stage you will be able to trim your lengths down if necessary. Once you have done this, make sure you tape each end to stop the rope from unraveling.
Measure out a length of wire for each rope, so that it sits in-between the sellotaped ends.
