Hello & happy Monday to all of YOU! :) I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Our weekend was awesome, & we had gorgeous spring weather to enjoy it in. It can’t get any better than that! ha! ;) Which brings me to this fun & easy SPRING inspired neon paper pinwheels tutorial that I made this month as part of The Silhouette Challenge. At the end of this post I’ll have links to 40 more spring inspired projects from some of my favorite bloggers! So make sure you keep reading! You don’t want to miss out! ;)
OK, so let’s get started! ;)
You’ll need the following for this project:
First you’ll open up your pinwheel image in your Silhouette software. Size it however big or small you’d like to make them. My biggest square measured 4 inches by 4 inches to give you idea of the size I used.
Then cut out your shapes with your Silhouette.
Then using your Elmer’s X-TREME glue stick (I love this glue!) you’ll glue the smaller square to the bigger square. Make sure you line up your cut lines & the small hole right in the middle.
Then you’ll fold each corner that has a hole in it into the middle. Secure with a brad. Then you’ll hot glue your pinwheel to a cookie stick. These would also look super cute glued to paper straws! :) This is a perfect kid’s craft, spring table or party decoration, rainy day activity & the perfect addition to your spring projects. Wouldn’t they make a cute wreath or garland? :)
