These pinwheels are so cute, easy, and fun to make.
What you will need:
- Card stock paper
- Hot glue
- Thumb tacks
- Wooden dowel
First you will want to select your paper. If you are using a 12X12 paper you will be able to make 4 pinwheels. Cut the paper into four squares 6X6 in. Then take a ruler and draw a diagonal line from each corner, creating an X on the paper.
Insert a thumb tack in the center of the pinwheel. I placed a small button on the back of the pinwheel pushing the thumb tack through one of the holes. Then push the tack into the wooden dowel. You could also use a chop stick. If you are not concerned about the pinwheel actually working just glue the pinwheel to the dowel.
