What better way to spend some time in the garden than watching a twirler, or a whirlygig, go round and round in the breeze. I’ve made lots over the years out of plastic canvas and beads – for my garden, family gardens and friends gardens.These twirlers were all made several years ago and over the years the plastic has deteriorated or become brittle and they all need replacing. All these directions were on my old site and old blog and it seems that search engines are still sending folks my way to find the directions and all they are getting is an error message and a redirect to the main page.
The patterns came from magazines, a plastic canvas group (that is now defunct) and hand outs from craft stores.
Patterns on the web that you can use.

This pipe twirler is made from plastic piping and elbow bends that can be purchased at any hardware store. I have even painted this one different colours.
