Planning Ahead for the Holidays (Making a Winter Pinwheel) August 9, 2012
You may say that I am “jumping the gun”. But the thing that makes the holidays so stressful, is that it all comes at once! Plus, having a retail shop during the holidays is going to bump everything up a notch!
You may have noticed that I’m making more changes to my blog. Besides the new “Become a Blog Sister” tab and the “Our Home” tour, I’ve added “The Workshop” page, where I talk about my new adventure. At the Workshop, I’ll not only sell repurposed, painted furniture, but I’ll have classes to teach others how to paint their own furniture. I’ll sell pinwheels and paper cone wreaths and teach a class, showing you how to do it yourself. I won’t actually do it all by myself. It will be a collaborative effort, for sure! Right now, I’m reaching out to a few people who can help make it a fun, friendly, creative place!
So, back to making the pinwheel! You’ll need the ever popular glue gun, 3 different colors of coordinated card stock, a piece of cardboard and some ribbon. The most time-consuming part is folding the card stock paper. I used two pieces of card stock paper cut in half, lengthwise.
Voila! Ain’t that cute? If I had some beautiful German glass glitter, I would have made a different centerpiece, but alas, I have no glitter! It’s on my list! There are so many variations possible, so have some fun!
