Like I’ve said in previous posts, I am hanging on to summer as long as I can! I can feel the pull towards back to school crafts and shopping, but I am doing all I can to push back and enjoy the carefree days at least a few days longer and that means making a few more quick summer 30 minute crafts. This one I have to say is my absolute favorite yet! I love the fun and whimsy of this cute pinwheel art! This project took less than 30 minutes, and gave me a nice little break from looking at bedroom furniture sets for my daughter. Yes, that would be another project I want to get started on, even though we have about 20 different projects that we are in the middle of. I have a short attention span…hence the need for quick little crafts like this one!
For this project I used the following supplies:
- Evolution Advanced Die Cut Machine
- Pinwheel Shape Die
- Enamel Dots
- Scrapbook Paper
- Bamboo skewers
- Cork Board
- Exact-o Knife
- Hot Glue Gun
Note: you don’t have to use these exact products to make a similar project, feel free to improvise and use what is readily available to you! If you would like to purchase any of the bold supplies, be sure to use code CUTEBLOG to receive 20% off your order!
The first thing I did was use the Pinwheel die and cut out 4 pinwheels out of double sided paper. I discarded the stick and center pieces of the die cut and just used the pinwheel pieces.
Then I used some enamel dots (I love enamel dots, they’re so fun!) and some brads and gave the pinwheels a little dimension.
I cut two bamboo skewers in half for the sticks.
I had a piece of 12×12 cork board, so I used one of the pinwheels as a guide and then grabbed a ruler and an Exact-o knife and cut the board to the right size.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the sticks to the cork first. I used a ruler to make sure that the bottoms of the sticks all lined up. Then I added the pinwheels using the glue gun to attach them to the top of the sticks.
This project will take you less than 30 minutes, the thing that took the longest for me was picking out the colors of paper! Put it on your mantle, hang it on your wall, put it on your bathroom counter or on a shelf anywhere that needs a bit of cute! 🙂
