Pinwheel Decorations

Pinwheels | Red Circle Crafts

I finally changed the decoration on my front door. It's been the same wreath since last fall and it was time for something bright and summery.

Pinwheels are easy to make and fun to look at. I attached these in disarray just using masking tape. Hopefully they'll stay up!

You can make a pinwheel out of any paper you have, or print out this printable I made and follow the instructions on the print out.

Materials:

Square Paper (or printable)
Metal Brad
Scissors
Craft Knife
Cutting Mat
Hole Punch

Instructions:

Cut down your paper to a square.
Cut along the diagonals, leave a few inches in the center uncut (less if you have a very small pinwheel, more if you have a bigger one).
Hole punch every other corner.
Cut a small X at the very center of the paper.
Bend the hole punched corners in to the center.Put the brad through all four punched holes and the X in the center.
Secure the brad in the back.
