Hi guys! Today, I have a great home decor project to share with you for the 4th of July. I made it using two Lori Whitlock cutting files called Pinwheel 3 (SVG, Silhouette) and Uncle Sam Hat Box (SVG, Silhouette). With it's patriotic colors and festive paper, it's sure to add a fun accent to your home or party.
I started with the pinwheels. To make them, I used red, white and blue card stock, a few Doodlebug Designs petite prints for pattern, some colorful brads, and blue plastic straws (links below).
I cut the pieces out using my Silhouette machine, folded them into place, and used brads to secure each one. Then, I punched a small hole in the end of the straw and attached the brad through the hole. So simple!
And ... so, so cute! These pinwheels don't actually spin but they look amazing and I absolutely ❤️ them.
Next, I cut and assembled the adorable hat box. I added a bit of white shredded crinkle paper inside to help hold the pinwheels in place.
You could also use this hat box to hold candy, straws, or drink stirrers. Great decor and super useful!
I hope today's project and Lori's awesome files give you a little inspiration for the 4th of July. Whether you have a big celebration or just a few friends over ... this will bring a patriotic vibe to your home. Happy crafting!
