PATTERN DETAILS

This is not so much a tutorial as much as just a detailed narrative on how I created this Christmas carousel holiday centerpiece. I won a prize from the magazine Craft Stylish for this project, and did not create a tutorial for the project as I made it, but I describe the process with photos from the completed carousel. This can be such a versatile project; you can make a carousel for a birthday, anniversary, retirement, or other celebration, and feel good about recycling a metal cookie tin in the process! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Using a screwdriver Measuring SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 10" x 9"

Supplies Needed

  • Spray paint
  • Recycle a butter cookie tin
  • Assorted embellishments

I started with crafts when I was about 9 years old. I learned to knit, and I still remember everything about that experience: from the yarn (a cherry red worsted, purchased at the Woolworth store downtown), the needles (a lovely set of pink aluminum size 11), the project (a poncho, with white fringe - ala Santa!). It was made with simple stockinette stitch in a rectangle shape, and then folded into the poncho, with the fringe added. I had the parents on the block paying me to teach the other children (who frankly, were not that interested in learning to knit!). I didn't give up teaching, though, I have taught classes in beadwork and crafts, and it's always very satisfying to see someone get 'hooked' on a creative pursuit.
