I created a fun take on a bouquet for the Christmas season by incorporating pinwheels, Canvas Corp style with the gorgeous Farmhouse Christmas collection and a range of Kraft and new printed papers. 7gypsies’ Architextures are layered on each pinwheel for definition and texture, giving each piece a beautiful detailed and unique look. – says about her project Christine Santos.

Pinwheel Punch Board
Trim the Canvas Corp papers to size for the pinwheels with the help of a pinwheel punch board.
Secure and glue these to the pinwheel sticks which will make it a secure base for the added dimension and layers on top.
Apply the Swirls Architexture on each pinwheel and then mist layers of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, drying each layer.
Fussy cut a couple of images from the Farmhouse Christmas papers and layer these on top of some pinwheels.
Adhere the International Coins Architextures on the middle of each pinwheel.
Trim some ropes, cords, and fringes, and add these to parts of each pinwheel.
Cover the sticks by adhering strips of canvas and burlap, and then add some color by spritzing it with Glimmer Mists.
Paint the edges of each pinwheel with some more Glimmer Mists, and then add some splatters on top.
Secure some fussy cut pieces with a clothespin. You can also add some glimmer to these with a spritz of Glimmer Mist.
Who would have thought that pinwheels could be such an unusual Christmassy decoration if done right!
