Baker’s Rack Organizing with Cupcake Pinwheel Garland

By April 23, 2011April 16th, 2012Crafts, Decorating, DIY Projects, Home Management, Organizing

Last week during the Grateful Giveaways, I shared my repurposed Baker’s Rack. Years ago I had a neighbor give me a Baker’s Rack that she wasn’t using. After moving a few years ago, we didn’t have a good place for it so we used it in the garage. And actually for a little while outside as well, for a potting shelf.

I knew that at some point I could give it new life and have the perfect spot for it. My office has become a bit overwhelming, to say the least, and I definitely work much better when everything is organized.

With just a few cans of spray paint and some scrapbooking supplies that I had on hand for the Cupcake Pinwheels, I created not only a spot to keep things organized, but it’s also really cute. Especially the Cupcake Pinwheel Garland!

First, the Baker’s Rack…

Doug helped with the painting, he used Krylon gray primer and then I found some paint on clearance at Walmart. Bahama Sea…I think spray paint is my new best friend!

While it was drying, I made the Cupcake Pinwheel Garland. Last year, when I made the Pinwheel Garland for the Summer Mantel, I knew there would be more Pinwheels to come. With some cute cupcake scrapbook in hand, I gathered up the supplies…

Cupcake Pinwheel Garland Supplies:

  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Brads
  • Tiny Clothespins {I found these at Walmart in the office supplie area}
  • Glue

Since I already shared the tutorial on how to make the pinwheels, I won’t bore you again. Head on over and check it out!

Aren’t they pretty? The thing I love about the Pinwheels is that they are so versatile. Put a stick on them for cute plant decoration, and be sure to watch soon for a fun Pinwheel Cupcake!

Add the pinwheels to a ribbon with the clothespins.

I just love being organized!!
