I am so excited to show you my Pinwheel Frame Wreath – it’s been on my door for about a week and I LOVE it!! (yep, it’s still take a look Tuesday – just scroll down a post for that – I just had to show this off today, too). It came together fairly quickly – - – I first got the idea from this wreath I saw that’s over at Neverland Nook, which is super cute:
My daughter helped me make pinwheels by gluing 2 papers together, then I would cut them to form the pinwheels – it’s great when “helping” kids are actually helpful – she did a great job saving me the step of gluing the papers together.
I also made this super cute banner that says “SPRING” – I’m kind of lazy about switching out my front door decor (I had to take down the St. Patty’s one to put this one up) so I figure the pinwheels can be for Spring and Summer, and I’ll just switch out the pennant banner.
To make the banner I used the Epic 6 machine and the new diecut letters from the BigTop collection – I thought about using this cute little pennant too, but I needed something a little bigger so I just cut the triangles. I plan on using the mini pennant as some cup cake toppers – wouldn’t that be so cute?? You can find these new diecuts along with a bunch of others over at Lifestyle Crafts (use code “SUGARBEE” for 20% off). I loved how easy it was to create the letters – roll through and bam, done!
So, back to the wreath. I had the banner and the pinwheels premade, then on the morning of the day we were to have people over, I thought, I should just whip that together. I didn’t have a wreath form or a good pool noodle, but I spotted an old frame and I thought that would be perfect. I just hot glued everything on. I love how cute and cheery it looks as you approach the door!!
Go make one of these today – it’s so fun!! You can do it!!
