Create a beautiful wreath for Christmas with Paper Pinwheels!
Here's what you'll need:
Squares of patterned paper
Squares of Astrobright paper (same sizes)
rhinestones or faceted buttons
I cut the paper into squares of 3 different sizes. 6", 4" and 2.5"
The Astrobright paper is the best part of these pinwheels!
It's so pretty to have those bright pops of color show through!
Take 1 patterned paper and 1 astrobright of the same size.
Run tape over the edges of one, and press them together.
So the color will peek through.
Fold into a triangle. Open and then fold into a triangle the other direction.
This divides it into quarters.
Cut the fold lines 3/4's of the way toward the center.
leaving about an inch or so in the center.
Stick a pop up glue dot on the center of the pinwheel...
you can have the colored paper on the inside or the outside...it looks good to have a variety!
Fold in one flap and touch it to about 1/4 of the glue dot.
Repeat for every other flap...making it into an eye catching pinwheel!
See how cool it looks with the bright paper?
Either on the inside or outside!
Add a faceted button or rhinestone with hot glue!
Make a bunch!
I got a willow wreath form at the dollar store. It's 18" diameter.
I made enough pinwheels to fill the wreath and stagger some on top!
Hot glued them in place and added some sparkly glitter tulle netting!
For a fabulous whimsical Christmas wreath!
Perfect for the front door for the Holidays!
