I have been wanting to make a pinwheel garland. I figured a red, white and blue one would be perfect for my mantel. I first saw the idea here. But here's a little tutorial just in case you want to make your own. I used 3 pieces of 12x12 scrapbook paper that I cut down to 6 x 6 squares.
Then just free hand cut from the corner to the center on all four corners - but not all the way through, like this.
With a small hole punch, punch one hole on each triangle and one in the center, like this.
With a brad, fold over the corners and put it through your brad.
Then it should look like this.
Then just make a whole bunch.
I punched a hole in two of the sides to run some twine through.
String them all together.
And hang it from your mantel. Super cute and perfect for summer.
I love how it turned out. The possibilities are endless.
