Today I’m going to show you something very easy. You need just 3 minutes to do it. It can be all sizes and can be used for many different purposes. The ones below are small and are for decoration (of a flower pot, garden and etc.).
What do you need:
– A variety of buttons
– Felt or similar material that cannot easily bend
– Needle and thread
– Decorative elements
– Wooden skewers
Step 1 – cut some squares from the felt (as large as you want), these are about 9 cm.
Step 2 – make some cuttings, as shown.
Step 3 – sew the edges, as shown, decorate and fix on the base.
And voila! You have a decorative whirligig. This technique could be used for making anything you want, for example some whirligig brooches.
