PINWHEELS CHRISTMAS WREATH


I came up with the idea of making this wreath after watching a “Decorating with Pinwheels” class.

This is a small one because I just wanted to see how it looked before making a big one.

I’m also thinking about making one in red, white and blue for the 4th of July.

Below you can see the “step by step” pics for how to make each pinwheel.

Step by step:

1- The green pinwheels are 3″x3″, and the red ones are 2″x2″.

You’ll also need scissors and a bead for each pinwheel.
