You can now cut along the black lines of the printed template – or just cut the outside of each of a quarter ring.
Assemble the IKEA LUSTIGT prize wheel as written in the IKEA instructions. It is best not to attach the wheel to the base yet.
Next, stick the cut out pieces of the template to the prize wheel.
Last but not least, screw the wheel onto the base and you’re done.
Let’s spin and have fun learning the ABCs.
What’s the hardest part of the hack?
The hardest part about making it is to cut through the double-sided adhesive tape. But don’t worry, I managed so you will too.
Other ideas to spin off 🙂
For a changeable spinner, use blu tack to stick the ABC template onto the wheel. Remove the ABC template and replace with different templates to squeeze more use out of the IKEA spinner. You can find additional spinner templates online, even a chalkboard version made by IKEA Australia.
