Twirlers or whirlygigs are so much fun to have in the garden. Even the gentle breeze will make them twirl. I make them from plastic canvas, wire, beads and a fishing swivel.
-wire from a coathanger that is about 16 inches long
-interlocking craft beads
-plastic canvas in your choice of colours, use 2 or 3 colours and alternate the strips
Cut your plastic canvas five holes wide and 70 holes long. You will need 27 strips.
Twist a loop in the end of the wire and thread three beads on.
Put one strip of pc onto the wire. Alternate beads and plastic canvas until all 27 strips are on the wire.
Take the free end of your first PC strip, and thread it on the wire.
Add a bead and move on to the next PC strip.
Continue until all strips are used.
End with 3 beads.
Bend a hook in the wire, add the swivel, and close.
Fasten a length of fishing line fastened to a clothes peg.
It should look something like a conch shell
I am not a professional pattern writer or designer. I just like to share patterns with other crafters.
Please don’t complain if there is a mistake, perhaps you can find the solution and share it with me so that I can then share it with others. Please don’t ask me for a video on a specific pattern …. that all takes time and this is done out of the goodness of my heart. Sometimes it seems the more you make available the more some folks want and demand!
