DIY - Pinwheel Canvas


DIY - Pinwheel Canvas




My kids love pin wheels, I think every market we go to, I end up buying one two!










Materials:

6 x Scrapbooking paper (Double sided gives a prettier finish)
Canvas 20 x 30cm
Craft Glue
Ruler 
Pencil
Pin
Scissors
Tic Tacs

                                    

Step 1:


Cut 12 squares 8 x 8 cm 



Step 2:


With a grey lead pencil, draw a faint line from corner to corner.


Step 3: 


From each corner cut towards the centre 3/4 of the way.

Step 4:


Establish which corners are to be folded, then making a hole in each corner and the centre is the easiest way to get a pretty finish, with no ripped corners.


Step 5: 


Put the pin ( Tic Tac) in each triangle, then finally through the middle and secure.



All done, just repeat for all 12

  55. i have a question. i'm trying to make this and wondered if there are different sized tic-tacs. the ones i bought (and only ones i found) are pretty big and are ripping my paper when i try to push them through. :o( is there another way i could possibly attach them in the middle. guess i could just glue them...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Stephanie, use a pin & put a hole in each corner first,(Step 4) then the tic tac won't rip the paper when going through.
    God Luck. I'd love to see your finished product!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I tried putting a hole in each corner first, but they're still ripping. :o( I want to finish this, but I don't want to waste my pretty paper. I might just use a thumb tack in the middle and put a clear plastic earring back on the back to sort of cap it off. Thanks for your response, and I'd love to show you my finished product. I'll try to remember to post it.
