{PINWHEEL garland - Tutorial}


What do you think of when you see pinwheels?
I think of Spring and Summer.
Warm, windy days.
Backyard BBQ's....Lounging and laughing.
Basically.... FUN!

I wanted to share with you this simple tutorial on how to make your own

PINWHEEL GARLAND!

It would be such a cute addition to your outdoor garden party, baby shower, bridal shower, even as wedding decorations in matching wedding colors... perfect!
Here's what you need to get started:

The next steps are pretty much explained in the following photos:







I punched small holes in 2 of the corner points on each pinwheel and strung them onto a length of jute rope:

That's all there is to it!

My home decorations don't exactly mesh with Springy colors, but I'm loving the pinwheel garland just the same.

I hope you enjoy making your own
PINWHEEL GARLAND!
Feel free to link up a photo in the comments if you make one.
I definitely want to see it!
