Now more than ever, in the middle of the coronavirus quarantine, rainbows have been a symbol for hope.
We’ve seen a huge global trend of using rainbow artwork displayed in windows as a way to say thank you to our essential workers, as well as to evoke positivity and happiness in dark times like now.
While real-life rainbows can be hard to come by, creating rainbow artwork is easy! Much of the rainbow artwork we’re seeing in the media right now is created by children, which certainly inspires even more warm and fuzzy feelings. What’s better than heartfelt kid’s artwork? Task the little ones in your life with drawing, painting, chalking, or creating something rainbow-inspired. Then display it proudly on your walls, windows, or fridges.
Don’t forget to create something yourself, too — we’re never too old to make our next masterpiece. And with Snapfish, you can turn this colorful art into something permanent in just a few minutes. All you need are some art supplies and a smartphone or camera.
Create colorful wall art bright as sunshine
Take a photo of your rainbow art, upload it to your Snapfish account, and add it to a canvas of any size! You can easily upload straight from your phone to your Snapfish account using our free app. You can even take your rainbows a step further by adding embellishments, including sunshine, unicorns, or encouraging words.
Some of our favorites are under the “Collections” category of embellishments in the left-hand menu of our builder tool. Look for “Unicorn Stickers” or “Baby Unicorns” for some cute rainbows + unicorns! For positive and encouraging words, look at “Vibrant Memories”, “Simple Joys”, “Neon Brushstrokes”, and “Everyday Happiness”. Plus, there are lots of other awesome embellishments on the site for every occasion, so go check it out!
Have a photo of an actual rainbow you’ve spotted? It’s super simple to upload it and turn it into permanent custom wall art! Try a large size print or even a photo tile. These are easy to display in your window or hang on your front door as a way to spread some joy to your neighborhood, too.
Cozy up with rainbow mugs and more
If you’re looking for way to bring even more of those warm & fuzzy feelings into your home, why not try creating a personalized rainbow fleece blanket or throw pillow? It’s a great way to remind you to always look on the bright side.
Your rainbow artwork could also make for some pretty epic drinkware. Who doesn’t love to start their morning with an adorable custom mug that makes them smile? Although quarantine is a bit unusual, using drinkware that showcases a bright and cheery rainbow really does make us feel more hopeful and optimistic.
Say thanks with a cheerful image
What about using that rainbow artwork to thank those essential workers in your life? It only takes a few steps to turn illustrations and pieces of art into a one-of-a-kind card for someone you love.
There’s never been a better time to share some cheer with your friends, family, and loved ones. From rainbow-colored artwork in your windows for the neighbors nearby to sending sweet cards to those who are far away, it’s easy to spread some positivity during quarantine and beyond.
