Make this rainbow wall hanging for kids – This is a simple, little activity that may be done by both young and old. I’ve been using Sculpey polymer clay for a long and wanted to construct something for Frankie’s room. Clouds, rainbows, and geometric forms were among the shapes I knew she would enjoy.
Sculpey is readily available online and in craft stores, making this a simple craft project for a rainy day or over the school holiday.
This sort of clay is one of my favorites because it is so versatile and simple to work with, and almost anyone can make something cute with it.
Make This Rainbow Wall Hanging For Kids
YOU NEED: Make this rainbow wall hanging
- Sculpey polymer clay. I used the colors igloo, cream, cinnamon and pumpkin
- Rolling pin or bottle
- Sharp knife
- Golden thread
- Stick or ankle
HOW? ‘OR’ WHAT: Make this rainbow wall hanging
- Start by rolling over clay about 2mm thick. You can use a rolling pin for this, but I find that a glass bottle gives a smoother finish. Make sure you do this on glass or marble so that it doesn’t stick to the surface.
- Use a cookie cutter or a glass to cut out your shapes. To make the rainbow, I unrolled three thin tubes, glued them together, bent, and cut around the edges for clean ends.
- Place all shapes on a baking sheet and cook over low heat for 10 minutes.
- After the clay has cooled, plan your hanging pattern by setting it on a bench. I decided to cut semicircles at this point to create a geometric look.
- Using your hole punch, punch holes in all of the pieces of clay where you want to connect them together.
- To connect everything together, you can use gold wire or jump rings. I decided to use gold thread.
- Slide the pieces of clay onto the dowel or stick. Add twine to the ankle to allow you to hang it.

I also decided to add a twine pom pom which can easily be made by wrapping the string a few times in a gold ring and using another piece of string to secure the top of the pom pom. Finally, cut the bottom loop to make the pom poms.
Like what you see? Or do you just want to save it for later?
