It doesn’t seem like the rainbow trend is going away any time soon, and we are super happy about that! We love using non-traditional colors and fun textures to add rainbows to everything – including our walls! This simple felt rainbow wall art is inexpensive to make, but brings textures and colors together in the best way. Keep reading for this fun rainbow tutorial!
- Studio 71 Canvas (we used 24×30)
- X-ACTO Knife
- Darice Felt
- Darice Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle
- Staple Gun
- Glue Gun
Step 1: Using an Xacto knife, cut the canvas along the edge of the staples. Separate the canvas from the frame. You should be able to easily tear away the canvas that remains under the staples.
Step 2: On a canvas of this size, you will have a piece of wood that goes across the middle of the frame to provide extra support. Saw through the center of the middle piece, and pull it out from the sides of the frame so you are left with a wood rectangle. At this point you could paint or stain the frame, if you wanted, but we left ours natural.
Step 3: Lay the canvas on the back of the frame so the white side is facing inside the frame. Staple the canvas to the back of the frame. Hot glue would work too.
Step 4: Trim the excess canvas so nothing sticks out beyond the frame. Flip the frame so you have what looks like a framed piece of canvas.
Step 5: Cut a piece of felt in an arc. Cut the next color slightly smaller than the first. Repeat with each color, cutting it smaller than the color before.
Step 6: Using hot glue, attach the largest felt piece in the center of the canvas. Attach remaining colors, one on top of another, largest to smallest, to create a rainbow.
Step 7: Using matching floss, stitch around the edges of each color.
Hang on the wall using picture hanging strips, and you now have the brightest, cheeriest wall art, perfect for any kids room, playroom, office, etc.
