Salad Spinner Painting – Christmas Ornament Craft

chirstmas ornament crafts

I love doing spin art and my $5 salad spinner is perfect for it. To give it a Holiday twist we drew holiday shapes on our paper first then did the spinning. My son begged to turn these into ornaments but they would be just perfect as is. Smaller bits of paint would make a a cool effect but when a 3 year old is the artist you go with the flow.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need a salad spinner, some paint( thin it a little if you want), glitter glue if you wish, a marker and card stock or my favorite recplacement for cardstock plain paper plates. They are already round so it’s easy to trim for the spinner. Salad Spinner Art

    What an awesome idea! We will be getting a salad spinner soon! :) My aunt & uncle took me & my sister to this Spin Art place (like, back in the early 90′s), and you could make a spin-painted shirt, it was so cool – this reminds me of that. :)

    I found a great price on a salad spinner at IKEA for $2.99. What a bargain! It was 15-25 dollars everywhere else in town and the thrift stores didn’t have any. I am going to use this to do spin art at my son’s school for their fall festival and am using pre-cut pumpkin paper shapes from Michael’s for the paper.
