DIY Old Book Crafts – No 7 – Rose Pin Wheels

You might remember the Vintage Rose Lanterns I shared last week? Here is a matching, cute & easy late summer book craft utilizing the same lovely roses, Vintage Rose Pin Wheels:

Another decor that would be perfect for a Garden Party, or for a shabby chick interior all year 🙂

And they are super easy to make, the old book pages, your printer, a pair of scissors, a small hole punch and a brad is all you need 😀

 INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Trim your pages to the precise same width, cutting with a ruler and a blade is useful to ensure precision
  2. Measure the size of the page precisely, mine are 130mmx210mm.
  3. Create a custom setting for your printer
  4. Print one pin wheel per page
  5. Cut out the pin wheel and cut the marked lines from each corner
  6. Punch 5 small holes where marked
  7. Collect the 4 wheel leaves onto the brad, and push it through the middle hole
  8. Fasten the brad on back of the pin wheel
  9. (Optional 1: If you want your pin wheel on a stick, you can also use the brad to attach a skewer or a straw in the back, or simply hot glue the pin wheel to the stick.)
  10. (Optional 2: Display your pin wheels on a wreath, either vertical or horizontal)
  11. Display and TA-DAH: Vintage Rose Pin Wheels :-).

The high quality Rose Pin Wheels can be found in the download folder below. The files are free for your personal use and enjoyment. Download Printable The Rose Pin Wheels can also be printed on regular paper, I recommend printing 2 pin wheels per A4-age for a nice size.

All the roses were found on The Old Design Shop, thank you Julie for providing such a wonderful abundance of Vintage Roses 🙂 Take a look over there, it is truly a magical place 😀

    1. Thank you Hunny 🙂

      Pretty and easy…:-P What I find is that even the super easy crafts look good when the basic idea is given a new spin, and I also like making up a bunch, rather than just 2 or 3 😉 xoxoxo

  1. Kjære Maryann 🙂

    Jeg tror at det store Internettet spiste din kommentar, jeg kan ikke finne den på WoW…:-P

    Tuusen takk igjen for sååå fin kommentar 🙂 Kransen er laget for det formål at jeg enkelt kan skifte hva jeg henger opp, etter humør eller sesong 🙂 Det tok meg bare en liten time å lage den, og jeg er meget fornøyd med den, så nå vurderer jeg å lage flere, til flere rom i huset, eller som gaver. Har dere Claes Ohlson i Danmark? Det var der jeg kjøpte strengen jeg har brukt, meget billig i “herreavdelingen”… hehehe

    Jeg er superglad for at du blir inspirert av mine påfunn, det er jo derfor jeg deler mine prosjekter og printables i første omgang 😀

    Ha en aldeles strålende dag min venn 🙂

    Stor klem fra Gunnvor 🙂

    1. Don´t know what happens here on your blog, but I put up comments several times on all the blogposts here, but nothing ever shows anymore, and must be the same for more, as I can see, one post says there should be 10 thoughts, but it only show 4 here on my screen???
      But I´ve put up comments on the hearts, the crowns and the pinwheels 3 times and still nothing to see on any of them, that´s why I try to answer this old post here now to see, if that might work, so please let me know, if you can see any of them and it´s just me???

      1. Here is the second comment retrieved from the blog spam inbox. I have recorded your input in abscense… lol! I was so sure you were superbusy down in Denmark, although I really missed your cheerful comments here 😉 Did not want to beg for your sweet input…lol xoxoxo

    1. Thank you Hunny 🙂 Using pencils is a great idea for sticks, if you attatch the leaves with a thumbtack or pin you could even make the wheels spin 😀

      I’ve been planning to use some of mine for gift toppers, now I’ll know to attatch a pencil and make it useful too 😀 xoxoxo
