Spin Art Sun Banner !!

We made this beautiful Spin art Sun Banner for Sankranti at our home:))

After, I gave away the coffee filter sun banner we made for my friend, Putti was really sad that we did not have one. So thought of making one for us too. Only this time we used our beloved salad spinner to make suns. I love this because putti enjoys spin art and also because the process is so easy, you can make many pieces in a short span of time.
Cut paper the size of your salad spinner. Putti used droppers to drop slightly watered paints onto the paper.

Close the lid and spin, spin and spin...

These are our suns !! Ignore the one at the corner, putti found our do-a-dot marker and went dot-dot with it, before I stopped her:)

I would have left it at this stage, Putti wanted me to cut the edges to make sun rays just like in our Coffee filter suns. So, I did... But next time I think if we make these, we will cut the edges ahead before spinning:)

And finally glued on the individual alphabets in kannada that says 'Happy Sankranti' and taped them all together and pinned it on the wall.
