For months I wanted to make pinwheels. I know a very simple thing to do and pretty ordinary too. But when made with pretty papers they can be rather cute and used for variety of things.
I found this wonderful blog ~allsorts~ with a free template and directions for a Patriotic Pinwheel, so I thought why not use it to make a topper for a dessert or a cupcake, ice cream cone for the 4th of July.
I saved the template and resized it to about 2.4inch/6cm/ x 2.4/6cm/
The pinwheels I made can’t turn, I skipped that step/I was a little lazy, plus I couldn’t find the beads big enough, I thought I had some but they were too too small/, but you sure can make them spin. I used a small flower shaped brad to hold all the corners in the center. And I simply glued the stick to the back..and voila.
Stay tuned for more pinwheel ideas.:-)
Have a great day.
