RAINBOW WALL TUTORIAL

 

 

01. Start off by arranging your rainbow wall consisting of 8-14 sticks and two 54" shoelaces

 

02. Once you have your sticks arranged, start with the bottom stick, and grab one of your strings

 

03. lace one end of the string through the loop of the stick going left

 

04. lace the other end of the string through the loop of the stick going right

 

05. now pull the ends of the string until you have a small loop ensnaring the stick

 

06. make sure you have equal lengths of the string on each side

 

07. Now decide wether you want to make "whips":

where the sticks are end on end (this will make the rainbow wall very rope-like)

 

08. or if you want to make "sabers":

where the butt of the above stick, lays beside the stick below it (this makes the rainbow walls more stiff)

 

09. Once you have all the sticks laced up, make sure you tie the ends together

 

10. A finished whip design should look like this

 

11. A finished saber design should look like this

 

12. The final step is fastening the sticks in place. If you use tape, make sure it is strong enough to handle

some abuse and re-positioning (tape will prevent you from doing wraps);

Alternatively you can use rubber bands to secure the sticks and this WILL allow you to do wraps

 

13. Get creative with your color patterns, it doesn't always have to be a rainbow or chakras

 

14. You can also stack the rainbow walls into duo-stacks and tri-stacks

 

15. Get out there and string to your heart's content!! =D
