You may have noticed we have a certain thing for color… and rainbows… and unicorns.

It’s likely you’ve seen our Rainbow DIY Taper Candle Holder idea, so you already know we’re addicted to rainbows.

Okay, so we’ll leave unicorns out of this DIY for now…

But we have combined some surprising DIY supplies to make very budget-friendly DIY Rainbow Art.

Any guesses?!

We bet you wouldn’t have thought that pool noodles would make for chic art in your home.

But we think this proves otherwise.

Don’t you think?

Steps on How to Make DIY Rainbow Wall Art Hanging

Step 1 — Start off with the biggest pool noodle piece and your desired color of crepe paper.

Take your pool noodle and wrap it in the crepe paper and seal it in place with hot glue little by little.

Make sure to use crepe paper and not regular tissue paper, as crepe paper has a bit of a stretch to it that will be essential when forming your rainbow!

Cover your pool noodle completely with your paper and glue it closed.

Be sure to fold in the sides to cover the bottoms of your noodles.

Step 2 — Now, gently fold your pool noodle in half and create your desired rainbow shape to know how big to cut the cardboard piece as a backing.

Glue the pool noodle down on your poster board to begin shaping your rainbow.

Step 3 — Before you begin wrapping your other noodles; fold your next noodle and nest it inside your first rainbow stripe.

Cut the noodle with scissors to fit into your first rainbow piece.

And repeat with all of your noodles in order to achieve the correct lengths to form your rainbow.

Step 4 — Once all of your pool noodles have been cut to their correct lengths, finish wrapping each in your desired color and hot glue them down one by one until you glue down your final noodle and essentially the middle of your rainbow.

Step 5 — To give the rainbow some life, we added fringe at the bottom because… who doesn’t love fringe?

This DIY fringed mirror wall hanging proves it.

So take the same colors you used to create your rainbow and cut long rectangles.

Step 6 — Once you have the long strips cut out, fold a small piece at the top to use to glue to the bottom of your rainbow.

Stack the pieces of fringe as desired until you have a full-fledged fringed rainbow.

Now say that five times fast… kidding!

Step 7 — The final step is to add some string to the back of your rainbow to hang it up!

We used fishing wire for a seamless look, but you can use any string you’d like by simply hot gluing in place.

Just like that, you’ve got a masterpiece DIY rainbow to show off!
