Spring Nook Update

So on what date is it weird to still have your Easter Decor up?  Yesterday, I decided that May 11th was probably a good day.  I heart pinwheels and found some cheery double-sided paper that I thought would look great with my S-P-R-I-N-G letter blocks. I cut out a bunch of perfect squares in various sizes.  I thought it would be fun to bust out my circa 1996 decorative scissors to make it a little more fabulous. 

I made 3 to go in this fame and hot-glued flower buttons in the middle.

 I made 7 more and hot-glued them onto BBQ skewers and put them in a vase to make a pinwheel bouquet.

Check out my pin-wheel wreath.

  2. What a clever idea to frame them like that! And having them all clustered in the vase is super cute. Now all you need is a nice breeze to get them spinnning! :-) Thanks so much for linking this up to Inspiration Friday this week!
