I wanted to try my hand at paper pinwheels and found some directions on the Martha Stewart website. What a super easy and fun craft!!
To begin, I selected some scrapbook paper from my mountainous stash that was patriotic themed. I measured out squares ranging in shape from 3*3 to 6*6 and cut them out.
Once I had my squares cut, I glued together two different pieces of paper - so each side had a different design. Next - fold the glued squares into a diagonal.
After I had all the points glued down (finally!) in the center, I put some glitter in the middle to spice it up.
Initially, my plan was to make traditional pinwheels on a wooden dowel - but as I was making these I decided they would be super cute on my front door. I then glued each pinwheel onto various pieces of ribbon and used it has a door decoration. Don't they sort of look like fireworks?!
Overall - I was able to create this fun patriotic decoration for free!! All of the materials I already had on hand. Can't beat that!
