The joys of having my own craft room continue to amaze me. I just love thinking to myself "I have a few minutes why don't I go upstairs and create something cute." I can't share all of my creations because one of them is a christmas present, but I will be able to share one of them with you all. I have seen so many people making pin wheels on Pinterest and in blog land, and I wanted to give my hand at making one too.
I chose old music sheets because they are super cute and easy to fold.
I began to fold the first piece and I did not measure anything I just guessed about how much I wanted my folds to be. If I can avoid using a tape measure I WILL!
The first half of the pin wheel
Now that I have both sides of the pin wheel complete I can make a circle by gluing them together
I used glue dots to connect the two parts of the wheel
Then I took spray glue and sprayed the front of the wheel and sprinkled glitter on top (thanks to my mother in law I actually had spray glue on hand because she was sweet enough to give me her can)
I used a wonderful "M" that I had in my stash. I knew this "M" would go to good use. I bought it ages ago, and was hanging onto it for just the right project. I plugged in the hot glue gun at this point to adhere the Merry to the pin wheel. Regular glue would not do the trick, but the hot glue worked perfectly.
I had some sweet snow flakes ribbon which I cut out individually and attached using glue dots
This was my favorite touch to the wheel. I punched wholes in each fold and then I threaded this fun ribbon through each hole
TA DA! The final product came out so cute
I love how old and vintage it looks.
I hung it on my tea cart, which is sitting next to my Christmas tree
This project was so easy, and so much fun to create.
Have a lovely day!! Try to make some time to create today because it is so much fun.
