Spiral - Updated

The Unplug Your Kids Challenges have changed to Monthly. Surely I should be able to do monthly? This months theme is Spiral.

A few things came to mind - spiral snakes, spirograph doodling, and spiral pasta.


We did none of those, instead I remembered about some felt roses I made into a ball last year and we made some of those. Get some awesome instructions from Betz White which is where I got the idea from.


Basically you need a circle of felt. I made mine about 10cm diameter. Cut a spiral into the circle. Starting from the edge, roll felt. Keep rolling until you get the then end circle. I hot glue gunned mine together. You can use the end circle as sort of a cover over the spiral to keep it all together.


I attached one to a bobby pin for a hair accessory. We also made some cuffs. I attached one rose (by glue gun) to a strip of fabric. The cuff is fastened by a button we sewed on.




Some Spirally goodness. I like these so much I might make some more. Maybe 3 little roses on a hair clip?


*** The girls have been wearing theirs to school and everywhere (girl power type ben 10 watches?) and now I have kids in the school yard coming up to me asking if I would make them some! I have to go buy some more felt and buttons....
