LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations.

Rainbow Yarn Craft


This is a craft one of my recent graduates taught kids at our school's while teachers were prepping for the new school year. She looked after the staff children and taught them how to make this craft. She saw the craft on Instagram.  All of the supplies she purchased from the Dollar store!

Needed: thick rope, yarn (thin), hot glue gun, wire or pipe cleaners, scissors, tape

Here's a useful TUTORIAL and a Youtube TUTORIAL


Cut the rope into as many layers as you want your rainbows. Make them each slightly shorter than the rest. Wrap or hot glue on a piece of wire to each rope so it can bend. 
She used three ropes as the youngest kid in the group is only in Grade 1.

Choose your yarn colours and wrap each rope, leaving the ends free.



 


Once all the ropes are wrapped, hot glue them all together. 
You can add a loop of yarn on the back for hanging. Unravel the ends a bit and trim or leave them wild!
I think they're so cute and stylish!
