You may be wondering why I need said felt-art. Well, I'll tell you. I have a most understanding husband. But there are times when I know when to ask him to move a shelf that took him eight years to hang, and when to find something to throw on the wall to make the shelf not look so high. Have a look at our bedroom.
Now let's all just take a moment to admit it. That's a high shelf.
But it's exactly where I told him to put it, so...on to making a space filler!
First, cut a square. I made mine 6" x 6".
Now, trace an X on your felt.
Put a dot on every other corner, and fold that corner in to the center.
And about five minutes later, you've got yourself a few pinwheels!
Oh, and I got some buttons and sewed them on the middle of the pinwheels to cover that little messy part.
For this next step, I was planning on finding some frames to mount the pinwheels on, but because I'm so cheeeeap (refer to paragraph #1), I decided to use embroidery hoops. Again. But this time I painted them white, so I feel like they're totally different than the hoops in my living room. I skipped taking a picture of the spray painting step, because...I just spray painted them.
I got a little bit of muslin fabric from my friend, JoAnn (I was going to get burlap, but she was out...) and threw it in the hoops.
Glop a little more glue on the back of the pinwheel, and stick it right on.
Then I...put 'em on the wall!
I suppose they'll work until I get all that international, multi-million dollar art up...
