In my quest for cute, handmade party decorations, I recently tried my hand at making paper pinwheels. It's so easy! I followed the tutorial I found on children's author and illustrator Leslie Tryon's website. This is just a mock up, but with my final pinwheels I will use double-sided (color/pattern on both sides) square 12"x12" scrapbooking paper. I still need to get dowel rods or some kind of "stick" and maybe cute brads or pushpins.
This big pinwheel took less than 5 minutes to make (minus the rod). Pardon the bad photo, it was taken with my phone since I was so excited with the results! Plus, this is perfect for Spring!
