Have you noticed all the rainbows lately? And not just the neon, primary versions we grew up with: Rainbows are popping up across home decor and fashion in new color palettes and exaggerated shapes to get us excited for spring.

Plus, rainbows are incredibly easy to DIY. Our favorite rainbow projects introduce clean, organic shapes, and new colors to your spring space.

As much as we love a good, white wall, we equally love murals that turn them into bold opportunities. Racheal is the master of creative murals, with tons of inspirational projects to break you out of the traditional rainbow mold. We love this one, where she sneaks a surprising striped strip into a rainbow.

Paperwork might be my least favorite chore—probably because I don’t have a great system for keeping track of receipts. Holly’s rainbow paper organizer not only brings cheer to a rather mundane task, but lets you add more layers to fit your needs.

These paper rainbow earrings are so easy (and fun!) to make, we wouldn’t blame you if you crafted a set in every color combination.

Look at all this texture! Kelly is known for her colorful DIYs, so it’s no surprise that when she was hunting for a statement piece for her office, she made this. At first glance it reads rainbow, but the actual color order is mixed for a fresh take.
