Today I ran across an amazing fidget spinner costume made homemade by Amy Kilgore! She was so nice to share her tutorial with us!!
Here's her video of it in motion...
"I drew it on paper. Then I traced it and cut it out of an Amazon Pantry box.
The green circles are from a plastic spool I had.
I straightened a piece of old curtain rod holder bigger than the green hole, tied the ribbon and a piece of black cord and threaded through the silver tube. (Solar outdoor lights stick).
I cut a piece of a pool noodle, used duct take and a glue gun to secure the silver light stick. I glue gunned and clamped them together.
I glued the circle I cut from the box, wrapped in foil, sprayed gold to the front of the green plastic circle.
Before I spray painted the circle and the other part, I stuck small pieces of duct tape to completely cover it. Then I spray it with the gold .
After it dried, I used the pattern and poked holes around the circles, through the cardboard.
I painted the inside of the small circles, black. Larger circle blue. I cut 3 more cardboard circles. Covered then in foil and painted them. I glue gunned them over the blue I painted. The ring around the gold circle, give the depth.
I threaded the blue through the holes I made. The smaller circles, I just poked the bulb through the holes in the cardboard.
I have extra lights on the string. I ended up running them around the edge of the whole thing.
I rolled the gold lights into a donut attached around the center hole.
Then I threaded the front piece through the hole in the spinner. That is a front and back view. You can hold the handle and use the ribbon like a necklace to help support the weight. The 2 battery packs are taped to the back of the spinner too." So cool!!
