Step by Step Instructions
Using watercolor paint, paint each Simply Art Wood large dowel a different shade of blue. I mixed together some of the greens and blues to create some custom blues. The best way to do it is to bring the green into the blue color and mix. Don’t worry about creating the same color every time. I am going for an ombré worn look.
Paint one side of the 12 large circles using different blues and created blue from your watercolor palette.
Paint 6 clothespins in various blue colors, continuing to mix the green with the blues.
Cut 6 pieces of 1 foot burlap ribbons (without wires).
Use the hot glue gun to glue the dowels together lengthwise.
Pour glue down the back of the crack of the dowels.
Glue the wood circles to the bottom of the ribbons as weights.
