Summer is upon us! Let’s decorate with pinwheels, which have the feel-good vibes of childhood summers. While these don’t spin, they are hardy and can be strung up as a garland or displayed as a bouquet. Pop-Tone Collection papers are the perfect shades for pinwheels. These would also make great party favors for a summer party!
Print out a copy of the Pinwheel Cutouts PDF on each of your chosen papers.
Cut out the pinwheels. I used a combination of blade and ruler for the straight edges, and scissors for the curved. Hole punch for the holes of course.
Overlay one cutout atop the other, aligning the center holes. Rotate the cutouts so that you can see the corners of both papers.
Fold over any one of the hole-punched arms. Moving in a clockwise direction, bring the arms to the center, keeping the holes aligned. Press a Brass Fastener through the armholes, and then through the center holes to the back of the pinwheel. Fasten in place.
Using a cutting blade, cut small slits through the paper straw, near one end.
Direct the fastener through the slits, and secure in place.
Repeat with the remaining set of cutouts.
Create a collection with a rainbow of colors for festive decor at summer events!
