Since my last few posts ended up being… a little bit more controversial than I expected, I’m going with something safe this week; a tutorial on the diy pinwheels that I’m using as decoration in the church where we’re getting married.

I was having a hard time with the smaller pinwheels, specifically in regards to connecting the 4 points to the center, but I found a quick way to make the larger type. Since these didn’t need to be of the functional varietysofa pillow cases, I used a hole-punch and an office fastener!

Materials needed

-square sheets of cardstock or paper; you can find the 12×;12 size pretty easily at Craft stores, but if you’d like to make an 8×;8, you can cut a standard size sheet of paper into a square also.

–; office fasteners

–; pencil


-hole puncher

–; stickers (optional)

Step 1?= fold your cardstock/paper corner to corner so that it makes a large X.?If your cardstock is?thick, you can also just?draw 2 lines, corner to corner.

Step 2 = cut along the lines until you are around 1 –; 2 inches from the middle (you can mark these points or just eye-ball it).

Step 3 =?Each?corner now has 2 sections, for a total of 8 sections. Hole punch every other section,?and the center of the cardstock. You should have 5 holes in all.

Step 4 = fold all 4 points into the center and connect with an office fastener.

Step 5 = If you don’t like the office fastener look, cover it with a sticker! I actually think that it makes it look more like an actual pinwheel, so I’m keeping it as is.

Step 6 = Enjoy!

Warm, toasty, cozy, and looking cool. Taking just a few steps to make, the design possibilities are endless. Play with fabric, leather, felt, etc. and embellish with embroidery, glitz, or anything you like. This is a great project for using up remnants, too. Once you make a pair, you won’t want to just stop there. After all, when those little piggies come back from market, they like to slip into something comfortable.
