Here is one way that I used my stash of pinwheels...
|I used these babies as table decorations. Read on to find out how... :)|
bamboo skewers or wooden dowel
hot glue gun
variety of glass bottles
Ok... lets go...
Step 1 - stick your bamboo skewers or wooden dowel into the polystyrene board and spray paint. You'll probably need a few coats. Better to do lots of light coats than have one gluggy coat with lots of runs going down the skewer. :)
Step 2 - choose your bottles. I used maple syrup bottle, Vietnamese dipping sauce bottle & boiled lollie bottles. Remove labels and any sticky residue. I used tea tree oil. Clean the bottles up and give them a spray paint.
Step 3 - tie some scrap fabric round the top to cover the screw top thread. This makes the bottle look less 'homemade'.
Step 4 - use your hot glue gun to glue the bamboo skewers to the back of your pinwheels.
Step 5 - fill your bottles with sand and poke in your skewers with pinwheels...
