Christmas in July is nearly over but I still have a few mini tool ornaments left to share. Today it’s these mini paint rollers, cute on their own but even better when paired with the mini tool tree collection:
Scroll down below for links to all the mini tool tutorials and step by step instructions on how to make the paint roller ornaments.
- 1/4″ circular wood dowels
- drill & bits
- sticky back velcro (fuzzy side only)
- wire cutters
- black acrylic paint & paint brush
- super glue gel
- bakers twine
Step 1: Cut dowels. For each ornament you need (1) roller at 1.25″ long and (1) handle at 7/8″ long. Predrill a tiny hole into one end of each dowel piece.
Step 2: Cut a piece of the fuzzy portion of sticky back velcro to fit the length of the dowel. Adhere the velcro to the dowel and trim any overlap.
Step 3: Paint the handles black. Cut a piece of 18 gauge wire and shape it similar to above photo. Apply a dab of super glue to one end and insert into predrilled hole in handle. Repeat for other end of wire into roller dowel piece.
Attach bakers twine string for hanger.
