Fabric Pinwheel Ornament

Have you ever done a project that morphs into a big theme? Well, I am on it for my Christmas project. After creating the embroidery hoop Christmas wreath. I realized I can create a set of personalized ornaments using the fabric pinwheels.
For this project I selected PSA Essentials Peel and Stick Initials stamp set. I just love this font style. Stamp the wooden discs and set aside.
Using my Big Shot I selected a circle die to help me with my fabric pinwheel production. It was a truly a great way of cutting all the fabrics I need. You'll need five circles to complete one pinwheel.
To assemble the pinwheel start by folding the circle in half.
Then fold into a cone shape making sure the edges meet. Secure with glue and begin with the rest of the of the remaining pre-cut fabric. I made a dozen ornaments for this project. I suggest cutting all the circles in one batch and the rest of the process gets really easy.
Arrange the folded pieces to make a circle. Glue the stamped wooden disc.
 Attach a stretchy gold string and that's it!
It's fun personalized and festive. Tons of ideas can be done with this project. You can make different sets for friends, family, teacher gifts or a fun gift tag for the Christmas.
