The project was added to your Craft Projects.
Create a star pinwheel with patriotic paper for a fun 4th of July craft project. Stick into your garden or planter for outdoor decoration this holiday.This project comes to us from Sheila of Cheeky Magpie.
Poke hole in middle of paper circle and use adhesive to apply it to center of star. This helps to hold all of the blades in place.
Thread wire through button and then place on top of hole in center of the star. The wire will be what allows the star to spin.
On the back of the star, thread the bead on the wire and then add the second button. The bead keeps a space between the stick and the star allowing it to move freely. Twist wire to keep button/bead in place. Then wrap wire around the stick and tape down ends.
At this point, you are done but may want to decorate with ribbon or trim and a shape for the center of the star. I used a small chipboard star for mine. It's not only a toy, but doubles as decor. Mine is being stored in a planter next to some flowers. I spins gently with the breeze. Very nice!
