Spring is a welcome time of venturing outdoors after months of shivering and hibernation throughout winter. Everything seems to come alive: plants, animals, the breeze, people.

Brightly colored and pleasingly symmetrical, pinwheels fit in perfectly with the season. They are just the thing to make lots and lots of, spread cheer all over the house, decorate parties, and enjoy wherever you go. We’ll be making these timeless toys for Crafty Hour on Thursday, May 10th, 5-7 PM. RSVP and bring $5 to save your spot and create with fellow locals and Ms. Polly Conway!

Here are some photo-inspirations and ideas for our Crafty Hour:

Make them big or small, whatever size captures your fancy.

Go plain & simple, patterned, or multi-colored. Use any kind of paper, or for a softer feel, use felt.

Pinwheels are pretty as home decor, gift bows, mobiles, and cake toppers. And they look really nice in jars and bottles.

Finally, don't forget to enjoy your pinwheel in the sunny outdoors!

Hope to see you at our Crafty Hour! Want to know what else is coming up? Hit our Facebook Events page and get excited!
