Rainbow Woven Mini Wall Hanging

Grab some yarn leftovers and let’s get weaving!  This mini weaving is simple as pie and uses basic materials like yarn scraps and a small embroidery hoop.  A fun rainbow arch is incorporated into the center, with fringe cascading down the front.  Fluffy pom pom clouds add a finishing touch!

  • Worsted weight yarn of your choice (rainbow colors-purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, and white for the clouds)
  • Embroidery floss (I used white)
  • Embroidery Hoop (Any size is ok, I used a 3 inch hoop)
  • Scissors 
  • Tapestry needle


  • I used a 3 inch hoop, but you can use any size hoop you like!
  • Fringe is about 6 inches long, but can be cut to the length you want.


  • Remove the inner hoop and set the outer hoop aside for now.
  • Tie the embroidery floss in a secure knot to the top of hoop.
  • Begin creating a series of crisscrosses all the way around the hoop.
  • Once you’ve gone all the way around, tie a knot onto the hoop again to finish.
  • Take a moment before your start weaving to center and straighten everything out.
  • Choose a yarn you’d like for the center (I began with purple) and cut a piece about 24 inches or so.
  • Thread your tapestry needle with the yarn.
  • To start weaving, bring up the needle from back to front and begin creating a crisscross pattern in the center.
  • Once your center has been “filled in” after a few passes, you’re ready to start weaving around.
  • With your needle and same yarn, come up from the back and work the needle under, over, under, over etc all the way around.
  • After each completed pass all the way around, snug things in toward the center before starting a new pass.
  • Continue working around, changing colors as often as you like until hoop has been filled in the rainbow pattern.
  • When completed, tie off the last strand with a secure knot.
  • Replace the outer hoop around the inner hoop and tighten in place.
  • If you like, you can add fringe to the bottom Pull a long length of yarn (about 8 inches) and fold in half several times.  
  • Fold it around your finger and send the loop through the bottom edge.
  • Send tails through and pull gently to tighten.
  • Continue across and 
  • Trim bottom as desired for the look you like.  You can cut it straight across, at an angle, or a chevron shape too.
  • Hang and enjoy!
