I went over how to make pinwheels in my last post and it really put me in a summery mood so I decided to make a pinwheel wreath to welcome warmer weather. Hopefully Mother Nature will get the hint.
Styrofoam wreath form
Yarn or ribbon to cover your wreath form
Toothpicks--1 per pinwheel
Pony beads and foam beads
For each pinwheel you will need two 6 inch squares of paper. My wreath has 6 pinwheels.
Glue the squares together so both sides are decorative.
Cut each corner toward the center, leaving a 3/4 inch square in the middle.
Fold half of each corner toward the middle and glue in place.
Let the glue dry and pierce an even hole through the center using a hole punch or a push pin.
Wrap your wreath with yarn or ribbon.
Insert toothpicks evenly around the front of the wreath and slide one pony bead over each toothpick.
Slide a pinwheel onto each toothpick and cover with a foam bead.
Hang your wreath on its own or loop a piece of ribbon to hang it.
Enjoy your fun door decor and keep your fingers crossed for nice weather!
