With the rainbow wreath we are joining the #letsallbewell rainbow action. The idea is to show kids that quarantine is not only fear and bad news but also joyful and creative spending time with family. In many countries, kids decorate windows with paper and painted rainbows, activating their imagination and creativity.

How to make rainbow wreath?

The first step is to cut the polystyrene base wreath into two parts. Then measure the selected part and divide it into 7 equal sections, because the rainbow has 7 colors. My wreath has 47cm, so each color should cover 6.7cm.

Now start winding the yarn, making sure that there are no gaps on the outside. The yarn on the inside should be squeezed gently to avoid breaks outside.
