Create your own Mini Rolling Pins and Fall home decor. In this tutorial, you will find out how to make them and where to shop for rolling pins.
These rolling pins are very popular and for quite some time now, I’ve been wanting to create my own.
In fact, I’ve been stocking up on blank rolling pins because I had several ideas that I wanted to create with them to display in my home for each season or to create as gifts.
The other day, I finally sat down and went live on my Facebook and sat down to make these rolling pins with a few wood blocks that coordinate.
How To Make Rolling Pins
I made the decals for the rolling pins using my Silhouette Machine. You can also use a Cricut if that is the machine that you own. I recently just listed this set of vinyl decals in my shop where you can pick the words of your choice.
However, if you prefer to make your own decals and buy the rolling pins – then this is the best place to find the rolling pins online.
You can also find them at Hobby Lobby when they aren’t sold out.
You can check out the video below of my process for the rolling pins and woodblock decals.
Once you have all the materials you will need to set up an area to create. The dining room table or your craft table is a great place. I made this in front of my Dreambox cabinet as it has all my supplies within the craft storage cabinet at an arms reach.
You can also check out my Dreambox Setup in this video to see how I have it set up! I absolutely love the Dreambox setup. It really makes crafting so much more fun!

Making the Blocks
First, you will want to paint or stain the side edges of your block. I choose to stain the sides with an Antique Wax which is a chalk paint wax made by Waverly.
Then you will want to paint your fronts and backs of the blocks.
Once dry, apply the vinyl decals you want to the front.
Making The Rolling Pins
For the rolling pins, you will do a similar process as the blocks. Paint or stain the handles of the rolling pins, and then paint the barrel.
Once dry, apply your decals. I like to align my decals to one side versus the middle. However, the option is yours to decide on how you want to place them on your rolling pin.
You can then add additional embellishments or ribbons to one end of the rolling pin to add something extra. I typically like to tie a ribbon around the opposite end of the decal.
Then place your newly finished rolling pins on a tiered tray or on display in your kitchen.
These make great gifts for the home decor lover, or even as great toppers on actual presents.
