How To Make a Macrame Rope Rainbow

DIY Rope Rainbow

With little Wonder baby on the way, I’ve been DIY-ing up a storm! One of my latest projects was this custom macrame style mobile with a “sunshine and rainbows” theme.  I had seen these little woven rainbow wall hangings all over the place and thought that they couldn’t be that hard to make. And guess what… they really aren’t!

I opted to create a handful of little mini rainbows to hang from the mobile and I am so happy with how it turned out.  The best part about this project is that you can make your rainbow match your existing decor, add additional layers of stripes, or make it on a much larger scale! Whatever you choose to do, the method is pretty much the same as the one I am going to share with you.

Macrame and Crochet Mobile

The mobile I made also showcases some handmade pom poms and a cute little smiling sunshine that I crocheted. The cost for this project was pretty much zero because I already had the supplies on hand. But in case you want to try to make some cute macrame rope rainbows yourself, here are the supplies you will need…


  • 3 colours of yarn of your choice
  • Cotton rope (I used 1/2 inch from the Dollar Store)
  • Scissors
  • Thin wire or floral wire
  • Thick needle/darning needle
