Rainbow ColorsJanuary 23, 2013 2:18 pm Craft Trends
When I was a little girl I loved everything rainbow colored. I couldn’t get enough of ROY G BIV. The brighter and more colorful the better. In the intervening years I’ve tended toward a more muted palate. Lots of whites and beige and grey, which is all well and good. But once in a while I crave bright colors. And not just bright, lots of rainbow hues all together. There’s something satisfying about a bright array of rainbow colors that no neutral can give. With that in mind, here a a few rainbow hued projects to indulge in during these grey and cold winter days.
Colored Pencil Jewelry – Design Mom
Having a girl who is obsessed, very very obsessed with coloring, I love these colored pencil slice projects, especially the rainbow necklace. SO pretty and yet so simple. Perfect for kids jewelry while still chic enough for adults. Even with a dressy outfit, you could get away with it.
Rocking Chair Project – Design Mom
These rainbow painted rockers are wonderful. SO fun and bright and different. I’ve got a bright yellow chair in my house and this makes me want to add other colors to the mix. It’s amazing how bright, solid colors make chairs that might be a little outdated look modern and new, isn’t it?
Crayon Canvas – Meg Duerksen
Crayon paintings are making the rounds in the craft world and for good reason. Who doesn’t love melting things, especially colorful things? And here’s a chance to make art and have fun melting all at once. There are lots of variations on this project, but I love this simple rainbow drip best of all.
