It’s cute and summery. A project that can easily fit in any room. Whether it’s a kid’s bedroom or a living room. Playroom or crafts room.

Make It:

To make the pinwheels from felt. Cut squares (I cut 2.5 inches squares). Now cut across the corners meeting at the center point. Make sure you leave some gap at the center. Try not to draw any lines because they are hard to remove from felt. Using your fingers bring the corners of the square at the center. And stitch beads or any embellishments you like. I have used the leftover beads from the stripes canvas art.

And in just a few minutes you will have tons of pinwheels.

I spray paint the embroidery hoop blue. Now glue the felt pinwheels (I used tacky glue) on to the embroidery hoop. Sorry for the bad images below. Not every image is promising.

Here’s a little sneak peek of the wall gallery.

Just in case your felt gets stained. You can remove light stains from felt using vinegar and cotton bud. But darker marks like mine means make new ones. Yes, I did make the pinwheels all over again without marking any lines.
