15th day of Christmas crafts: Spinners

I found this little vintage party supply shop in Copenhagen a few months ago selling these little spinners (above left). The owner explained that they used to use these for 2 purposes: 1) for Christmas games and 2) for construction workers working on top of a roof who would use it to decide who was going to go down and get the beer. I thought they were pretty darling myself so I painted my own version (on the right). I thought they’d be perfect for a game of deciding who gets to open the gifts first.
Materials: 1. top spinner with numbers  2. brad  3. bottom
Enjoy!
ALSO, you MUST check out my friend’s new hosting blog, Eats and Beats. She creates recipes and fabulous playlists. She was kind enough to invite me to guest post. Check it out here
