DIY: Pinwheels


Pinwheels make my life a little lovely. Although my instructions may seem a little complicated, it only takes about three minutes or less to make a pinwheel! I just took a picture of each step to make sure you fully understand. Here's how to make your own:
supplies: paper, brads, scissors (a mini whole punch would make things much easier but i just use scissors)
1. cut a perfect square. the bigger the square, the bigger the pinwheel and vice versa.
2. fold over both ways to create your creases
3. cut halfway up the crease on all four sides of square
4. cut mini holes with scissors on every other point
5. cut a mini hole in the middle of your square
6. work brad into the holes, your pinwheel will start to form
7. fasten brad in the back and voila! 

pretty pretty pinwheel...use hot glue to add a skewer to the back for a little pinwheel arrangement. see this post for the pinwheel arrangements i made for nelson's reunion!
