Springtime, Easter, birthday parties or any party for that matter, pinwheels are the perfect decoration and oh so easy to make!!!
In just a matter of minutes, you can make these little cuties...
Pop in to see how easy...
All you need is pretty paper, straws and a hot glue gun.
I started with a 12x12 inch piece of scrapbook paper and cut it into 4 pieces at 6 inches square.
On the back side, find the center and make a dot.
Now start cutting in from each corner towards the center.
You must STOP about a 1/4 inch from the center dot.
Cut all 4 corners.
Take one corner point and bring it to the center dot and hot glue in place. Hot glue works best, because there is a very short drying time...only seconds. Regular white glue won't work for this.
Now SKIP the next corner point and glue the next one down as shown below and keep gluing every other point.
It should look like this.
Hot glue a cute straw to the back side as a handle.
The center needs a circle of contrasting paper or bead to hide the glue.
I hot glued on a button!
The color options are endless...
I hope this projects adds a little whimsy to your next party!!
