Crafty Rainbow Swap

5 Aug

A few Weeks, well a Month ago (It didn’t quiet make my Very understanding swap partner on time), I took part in a #crafttherainbowswap set up by Louise @louffy1983 on Instagram.

The swap was 1 item each colour of the rainbow with at least 4 handmade items.

I enjoyed thinking of ideas for the swap but silly me didn’t consider the time constraints the wedding would bring so I got behind and had to alter a few things.

With my swaps I try to look at what crafts the person I’m swapping with does and then do something different for them. As I think it’s nice to receive crafts you may not do yourself.

This is what I came up with for my rainbow swap parcel.


I needle felted a RED heart hanging.





I went more for the smell with ORANGE and made bathbombs & scrub, infused with Sweet Orange aromatherapy oil. I added some Marigold petals to add some extra orange in colour form.







A little to late to plant this year but YELLOW sunflowers I think are such happy flowers.
These are the Giant Variety ! I hope that my swap partner and her son will have fun growing these next year.



I saw a little GREEN note book & letter C for my swap partners name so teamed the two up to personalise a note book for her.
… And who could resist the little green froggy rubber.



I’m going to admit this was my last make and I had issues the ceramic paint didn’t overly like the air dry clay – so I’m hoping this was ok in the end. But I made a small trinket bowl from air dry clay and painted it with BLUE ceramic paint and tipped it with silver.





Pompoms !! I made INDIGO woollen pompom flowers, and used florist tape to cover the stick steams, then placed them in a purple/indigo shot glass I brought.



I brought a VIOLET coloured Amethyst bracelet for my swap partner. I do like healing stones and I hope this helps her.


At The End Of Every Rainbow

… Is a pot of gold … chocolate gold in this case.



Now PINK isn’t a colour of the rainbow but I thought as a little extra I would included Pink. These skittles are dessert flavour ?.



I couldn’t resist this rainbow lolly pop it reminded me of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.


And what better than a rainbow coloured macaroon postcard to pop a little note for my swap partner in.


Finally some rainbow star stickers.


My Rainbow Swap Parcel Received

My swap partner had wrapped her parcels so lovely. Each with the colour button.


These are the lovely gifts she sent me which are now in various places around the house. I love them all! – Thank You.


Of course I saved the buttons…
