How to make pinwheels
I love pinwheels, for me they symbolize summer, freedom and childhood.
I like them
so much that I use them at my wedding the children that escort me to the
church (including my daughter) had giant pinwheels in their tiny hands. It was early
September and the scenery was fantastic.
So back to business, how do we make pinwheels?
I researched the internet and apparently there are many ways to make a pinwheel.
This is the way I like to do my pinwheels, I believe it’s easy.
You will need:
6'' x 6'' inches double sided scrapbook paper for a regular size pinwheel.
Glue gun or glue
Wooden Dowels or Straws
The paper i used on this tutorial is from My minds eye,The Sky is the limit, which I bought from Amazon.
I began by making an X from corner to corner, I used a
pencil in order to be able to erase it later.
I then used a push pin to make a hole on my wooden dowel. I do prefer a wooden dowel as it looks very chic.
If you soak the dowel in water for a few minutes it will be easier to push it through.
So, there you are, here is your pinwheel, it spins and it's full of love and joy.
