You will need:

Row 13: 1dc in each stitch, fasten off, weave in ends.
With white, Chain 4
Row 1: In fourth chain from hook, 12dc. Slipstitch to join to the first dc (12dc)
Row 2: Chain 3. 2dc in the same stitch. 2dc in each stitch around, slipstitch to join to the first dc (24dc)
Here, you can fasten off. You'll need to make 3 of the smaller clouds. To make the larger clouds, we continue with one more row (see below):
Row 3: Chain 3. 2dc in the same stitch, 1dc in the next. *2dc in the next stitch, 1dc in the next.* Repeat ** around, slipstitch to the first dc to join. Fasten off, leaving a tail to sew to the rainbow. (36dc)
Using a yarn needle (or your crochet hook), sew the clouds to the bottom of the rainbow with the long tail.
For installation, you can tie some yarn to the arch of the rainbow (see above) to then tie it to a fence, or pin it to a wall. Hey, it's up to you!
