Crafts for summer: Bright Rainbow Window Hangs

Making toys  |  September 8th 2011  |  0 Comment

You need dyed wagon wheel pasta in colors of the rainbow, glue, wax paper, marker, paper, and yarn. ( I dyed the pasta with food coloring and a little rubbing alcohol, let pasta sit in the mixture for about an hour, then rinse and let dry overnight.)

Draw a rainbow on a half sheet of paper. The rainbow doesn’t need to be perfect, only the outside line is the guide to placing the noodles.

Place a piece of wax paper over the drawing.

Flood the rainbow with a lot of glue (the glue is put on the wax paper).

Starting with the outside line, place the red noodles. Make sure the noodles touch each other and they are in the glue.

Finish the red, then move on to the next color, then the next. Try to get the noodles touching on all sides.


Let dry overnight. Cut the wax paper around the rainbow and discard. Don’t try to peel the wax paper off the back, I have done this and experienced bad results! Poke two holes on the top, between the red and orange lines, string yarn through and you’re good to go!

***Little note….prior to this project the ladies had fun making rainbows without the glue. I would walk into the kitchen and find rainbows all over the counter! :)
