These were really inexpensive party decorations - just a few sheets of felt, twine, and wood skewers and you're good to go! I had to do a little experimenting to figure out how to get the two layers of fabric to lie together flat. My words of wisdom... "DO NOT TRY TO GLUE THEM TOGETHER". Unless of course you want to go to the craft store again to buy a few more things!! You all know that the sewing machine and I are not on speaking terms, but I can work an iron - thank you iron on adhesive! I just ironed the adhesive on one sheet, peeled off the paper and iron on the top sheet of felt. Then I trimmed off the edge to get it nice and straight and cut 6" squares. To keep with the Party theme I cut and pasted the sweet Waltzingmouse from the WMSC blog page.
I wrapped twine around regular wooden skewers that you would use for cooking and hot glued them onto the back of the pinwheels. I cut the sentiments into pennant shapes and hot glued these along with the pinwheel centers for added stability. Here's one last photo of all three together. I stuck them in a jar full of colorful marbles to hold them in place for the picture.
I hope you like them - they are really colorful and promise a fun time for all! Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see all the other cozy creations you've made!
