Having fun doesn't always have to cost a lot.....
I don't think I'd go as far as making a bathing suit out of a flour sack,
like my pal, Big Hilda, but you get the idea.
I keep meaning to make a craft using paint chips. You've seen it done all over blogville, right? Pure genius I say!
So while at the hardware store, I picked up a
I found a template online and cut out a bazillion stars....
I glue stick-ed stars together in groups of three and used some blue tulle ribbon to make a patriotic banner.
I hot glued the the star clusters to every knot I tied with the tulle, which made it easy to glue.
Next I used a glue stick to glue two different paint chips back to back and squared them off by cutting them 5"X5" to make them into pin wheels.
I used a stapler to fasten the center of each pin wheel and hot glued silver pipe cleaners to cover the staples. I hot glued the pin wheels to paint stir sticks.
Craft 1~Pin Wheels
Craft 4~ Picture Frame Inserts
And here it all is together, mixed with things I already had around the house.
Do you like my patriotic angel? I found her at a yard sale months ago for one dollar! :O)
