MUDDY RAINBOW

Rainbow Handmade Crafts are Mum - Claire and 12 year old Skye, who both love crafting together. We started needle felting at Christmas 2023 and haven't stopped since. We both have ADHD so once we start something we love - hyperfocus kicks in and there's no stopping us!!! Skye creates the lovely colourful mushrooms and Claire creates the needle felted cacti, succulents and plants. We use repurposed teapots, cups and saucers, and pots as homes for most of our creations, and sourcing these is often just as exciting as the felting. We love plants too, but just cannot keep real ones alive, so here is our perfect solution...quirky, zero maintenance needle felted plants that you simply cannot kill...
