Hey party people! The other day I stumbled on how to make a pinwheel and I have been non-stop crafting these since. They are so quick to make and, when added to a string, can be a fun and impactful party decoration.
Materials: craft paper, X-acto blade or scissors, string, ruler, glue (I used hot glue)
Step 1: Cut the paper into a square shape.
Step 2: On one side use a pencil to draw a line from point to point, creating an X shape.
Step 3: Cut across the line from each side leaving an uncut space in the middle so it remains intact. Do not cut all the way through.
Step 4: Bend the left corner of each triangle shape down and glue on the center point. Be sure to not crease it tightly. You’ll want it to fluff out a little bit.
And there ya go! You’ve made a pinwheel garland. Easy peasy!
These pinwheel garlands are great because they’re cheap, practical and can really impact a space. Play up different patterns and color schemes to match your party theme.
