Fun Pinwheel Wreath


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. 

Materials needed:
Styrofoam wreath form
Yarn or ribbon to cover your wreath form
Scrapbook paper
Toothpicks--1 per pinwheel
Pony beads and foam beads
Glue

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!

  5. Dang girl! You really kicked some butt on this wreath! I mean, you could have just got the pinwheels at the dollar stores (which I saw a post that did that) but no, you got your craft on! What I'm trying to say is, AWESOME job and I LOVE IT! :)

    If you get a chance, please stop by!
