You may have noticed from reading my posts that I adore things that are cute, playful, sweet. etc. Well, pinwheels are certainly no exception to that rule. They just make me as happy as polka dots and powdered sugar!
Pinwheel decor is a cute and playful way to dress up your wedding event. They are sweet little details that would be perfect for a bridal shower, outdoor ceremony or backyard wedding. They are also very easy to DIY!! Below is a simple tutorial for creating your own paper pinwheels!
Colored Paper/Craft Paper
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Lolli Pop Sticks (optional)
Note: This tutorial is for pinwheels to hang or place as table decor. They are not spinning pinwheels.
Step 1: Measure out squares on your craft paper. Pinwheels can be whatever size you prefer – multiple sizes are always fun!
Step 6: Finish off your pinwheel by adding an embellishment to the center. Buttons, min poms, just a circle of different colored paper… anything will do. For my large pinwheel I even added a mini Fabric Flower.
These adorable pinwheels can be hung on the wall as decor or set up as a table display. Really, you could use them in any part of your wedding day. Even glue a pin-back to the smaller ones and you have little pinwheel boutonnieres!
If you’d prefer to stand them in a vase or use as cake/cupcake topper, all you need to do is glue a post to the back. I used lollipop sticks for this. Remember, if you’re gluing the pinwheels, they won’t spin!
