 Craft supplies DIY spinning tops:

Step-by-step craft instructions:

Step 1: Gather the craft supplies above and print the printable if you want to use it.

Step 2: Take a bottle lid as the base for your DIY spinning top. We used a bottle lid with a diameter of 4 CM, but smaller or slightly bigger is possible too. Make a tiny hole in the middle of your bottle lid with a knife or skewer.

Step 3: Cut the top part of your cotton swab. Please take a look at the picture above.

Step 4: Poke the cotton swab through the bottom of your lid, where you poked a tiny hole.  Make sure the cotton part is on the bottom; see pictures. We added a little bit of hot glue to make sure it sticks well.

Step 5: From colored paper, you’re going to cut the pedals of your flower. The size depends on the size of your lid. We cut our pedals 3 CM long; you can do 6, 8, or 10 pedals, depending on your preference.  Print the printable if you would like to use it.

Step 6: Cut the middle circle for your flower; if you like, you can give your flower a happy smiley.

Step 7: Glue your flower top together. First, glue the pedals on your lid, then your smiley on top.

Step 8: Give your DIY spinning tops a few good spins to ensure they work well. Great job!
