Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share with you a project I did for Darice using more of the gorgoues Little Azalea patterned papers from Embellish by Dena. These papers are so bright and cheerful, I couldn't resist making a few pinwheels for my friend's daughters to play with.
Using a ruler, draw lines on the diagonals and cut to within a half inch of the center.
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.
Place the brad through the center of the pinwheel, pushing through the glue.
Poke a small hole into the paper straw and insert brad from 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!
