One reason I love paper crafts is that they’re easy on the wallet. I made this paper pinwheel art a couple Christmases ago when I was trying to save money on holiday decorations. Come December 26th, I had a hard time taking it down, so it’s been there ever since. (In my house, it’s quite a feat for any object to stick around a whole year in the same spot.)
Last month a reader emailed to ask where she could get one. So here’s a little “craft and tell”. If you need a craft for a girls’ night, this would be great project. It’s cheap, perfect to do while chatting, and not intimidating to the anti-crafter. (You know we all have those friends.) Only a few supplies are needed: paper, a hot glue gun, and scissors. A paper cutter and some punches would be nice if you have them.
What to do with them you ask?
Glue them to a hurricane.
Attach them to a $2 frame from Wal Mart and hang on your wall.
Hot glue to ribbon and make a streamer.
(Please excuse my dirty windows. Funny how I didn’t notice them until now-ha!)
