Today's Tutorial Tuesday is one of my favourites and brings back fun childhood memories!
These could be cute centrepieces for a summer garden party or even a nice gift to put in your guests party bags.
I found a great step by step tutorial with photos from JDC.
- Patterned paper
- Strips of solid paper
- Pencils with erasers (as your stems)
- Drawing pins
- Scissors, tiny hole punch, adhesive glue
Cut a strip of paper to about 1cm x 50cm. Use glue to hold top in place and begin wrapping around the pencil, securing with glue at the end.
Select two pieces of paper for pinwheel and cut to desired size
*The finished size of your pinwheel is determined by the size of the square*
Glue papers back to back
Punch a hole in each corner
Cut along folded line, leaving 1cm at centre
Poke drawing pin through hole in each corner
And poke through back
Attach to ‘stem’ by sticking the drawing pin through the eraser of the pencil
Using a brightly coloured tin bucket and multicoloured pinwheels, you could create the flower-pot look. Using a little shredded green tissue paper for grass could add that finishing touch!
