I really love making these cute and fun paper pinwheels! They’re easy and colorful! I am redoing my bedroom and I thought these would look great in it! Let me show you how to make paper pinwheels!
Here are the materials you will need:
Pretty Scrapbook Paper (6″ X 6″)
Hot Glue Gun
First, fold your paper in half to make the shape of a triangle.
Unfold the paper and turn it around.
Fold the paper into a triangle the other way.
Poke a hole in the middle of the paper.
In each crease cut half way to the hole in the center.
Punch a hole in every other corner…see photo below.
This is what your paper should look like.
Place a brad in one of the holes and go around one way slipping all of the holes onto the bottom of the brad.
When you get them all on, poke the pointed end of the brad through the back of the pinwheel.
Now push the prongs of the brad down to keep it in place.
Cover the wooden dowel with washi tape.
Then, use your hot glue gun to glue the wooden dowel to the back of the pinwheel.
I made a bunch of them. I think I might have gone a little pinwheel crazy!
