Looking for a fun decoration for your next party? How about a cute pinwheel or two?! With just a few supplies you can have pops of color spinning in the wind. The summery, floral patterns on the Embellish by Dena Little Azalea paper pack worked perfect for my pinwheels!
- Dena Designs Little Azalea Patterned Papers 12×12 or 6×6
- Small Brads
- Hot Glue
- Paper Straws
Step 1. Begin by selecting coordinating patterns from the Embellish by Dena Little Azalea paper pad. I chose to mix and match a bold pattern with a subtle one and I loved how this turned out. If you are using the 12×12 pad, cut each sheet into 6×6 pieces and glue the back sides together. You want the pattern to be visible on both sides of your pinwheel.
Step 3. Place hot glue into the center of the papers and gently bring corners together into the center, working in a circular fashion. This will create the pinwheel. The side you apply the glue to will be the inside of the pinwheel.
Note* These pinwheels can be made bigger or smaller based on the size of the paper and the length of the straw. For a giant pinwheel, try a full 12×12 sheet of paper, a dowel and a push pin. For a straw you can drink from, try hot gluing the pinwheel to the straw.
You’re Finished! Now you can make as many pinwheels as your heart desires and watch them spin!
