I'm pleased to be your host for this week's 3d challenge! Our project is cute, fun, quick and useful! The idea was actually a Make & Take at a retail workshop I attended this past weekend in Framingham, Mass. and the vendor was Signify Pink. My version is a variation from their design but I want to thank them for the inspiration!
All you need for supplies are a pinch clothespin, some glue dots, miscellaneous buttons, double sided pattern paper, and Copic markers or acrylic paint. After coloring the wood and to add a little extra pop, trace one side of the clothespin and affix the pattern piece to the front side. An inexpensive magnet is affixed to the back with a large glue dot. For this project, cut the pinwheel pattern in a 2-1/2 inch square.
My resource for the pinwheel template can be found by clicking HERE. There are more pinwheel designs than you can ever imagine!
Here's an example of how I displayed photos using the magnets on a white board:
Hope you can give this project a try! It literally took me less than 10 minutes to make one. This would make fun teacher gifts, a closure on a gift bag, and to hold notes and lists! Great project for kids too!
To play along, post your pinwheel to our Planet photo gallery and use the keyword/tag: 3d157.
