Pinwheel Wreath

please excuse the less-than-stellar iPhone photos! my camera is still buried somewhere in our hospital bag... }

So the hubby is reading to Little E, which means I had a little time to photograph the simple spring/summer pinwheel wreath I put together! I was inspired by {this post} over at Until Wednesday Calls where she gives a great tutorial on how to make the pinwheels.

I needed something simple for a bright festive wreath, something that I could make whilst little one napped on my lap. These pinwheels were it! I actually sewed them together instead of using hot glue {hot glue + baby = no no} and then I simply used a straight pin or two to attach each pinwheel to the wreath base. Since it already feels like summer down here in the south, I decided to make one wreath for both spring & summer- so I did a mix of springy & summery colors :)

You may recognize the wreath base from my Saint Patty's Day Wreath. That's the beauty of attaching the decorations with straight pins- you can reuse the base! Saves a LOT of time, especially since I like the yarn-wrapped look for my wreaths :) Anyhoo, I should go relieve DH from baby duty- he's making dinner tonite, such a sweetie! Hopefully I'll get another chance to post later this week- I have so many projects I've been meaning to share!!
