Seriously... can you look at something rainbow colored and not smile? Rainbow's make everyone's days so much happier! Here are 10 Handmade and DIY Rainbow Projects and Crafts to Brighten Your Weekend!This weekend we are painting our house, well more specifically we are painting our dining room, then next weekend we will paint the living room, the weekend after the kitchen and so on and so forth. When we bought our house one of the biggest things we had to look past was the paint and the condition of the walls beneath the paint. I said to myself “The first thing we will do when we move into this house is paint it.” One week later Turtle was born and 20 months later… we still haven’t crossed any DIY projects off of our list.

I came home from work yesterday, looked at The Hubs and said “Lets head to Lowe’s, buy paint and paint this weekend.” He looked at me like I was a bit crazy, he is a planner and could plan painting for months before doing it. I am a bit more impulsive. I get an idea in my head and want to do it right away. It’s such a good thing that we are the opposite though because I like to do things and get them done fast… I don’t always think out the best way to do it or all of the technicalities. The Hubs likes to do things right, even if that means it takes a lot longer. In the long run that is a REALLY GOOD THING.

Anyways this is all my really long winded way of saying that this weekend I am thinking about COLOR! I felt like I needed a collection of rainbows to take me away from the dust of sanding the walls and the paint fumes.

Here is a collection of some of my favorite handmade and DIY rainbows.
