Good Morning MLS fans! It's time for another Tuesday Tutorial from our talented designers. Today Rocio Duran is sharing a perfect tutorial for summer!
Pinwheel Tutorial by Rocio Duran
With summer just around the corner, this pinwheel tutorial will help you find the perfect decorations for a summer party. They are so easy to create that you can just watch TV and make as many as needed in a short amount of time. Using the wonderful Garden Party line to create bright summer inspired pinwheels.
First, cut a square paper, I used a 4”x4”.
Then cut diagonally on each corner towards the middle but stopping short as seen in the photo above. It creates 4 triangles.
Fold one corner of each triangle ensuring that it’s always the same side of each triangle as seen above, the right side it folded towards the center. Staple the center to hold it all together.
Once all corners are folded the pinwheel is formed. If you want to use it on a layout you can leave it there, but if you want it to be functional continue with the following steps
Pierce thru the center of the pinwheel.
Using a short pin mark the wooden stick as seen above. Then thru the pierced center of the pinwheel so that the pinwheel is attached to the wooden stick and it will rotate with the wind.
Once you attach it to the wooden stick you can embellish the center as seen.
