Materials:

  • Straw Wreath Form
  • Wide ribbon
  • Scrapbook paper of your choice
  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • Wooden circles for the centers of the pinwheels
  • Washi tape for the circles
  • Contrasting ribbon for bow
  • Hot Glue/Glue Sticks

 

Instructions:

  1. Start by wrapping your wreath form with the ribbon of your choice.
     
  2. To make the pinwheels, cut two pieces of paper the same length and width. I used the length of the paper and the width varied from 1-1 ½  inches each. Remember that one piece of the paper will just be one half of the pinwheel, so if you go wide the pinwheel will be huge.

  3. Lay your strips on top of each other and accordion fold them back and forth evenly.

  7. Add a large amount of glue to the center and allow to seep into the pinwheel a bit, then hold together for a minute or two by hand until the glue hardens.  Flip it over and you have your pinwheel!

  8. I added wooden dots with Washi tape covering them to the center of my wheels by gluing them down the same way on the front.
     
  9. Attach the pinwheels to the wreath with hot glue.

I have loads of really neat scrapbooking paper that I need other uses for, so this wreath is a good use! lol I love this kind of wreath, but I'm concerned about it getting wet. My front door is protected with a storm door, but I think I'll give the flowers a coat of waterproofing spray before I attach them to the wreath. It doesn't have to last forever. I'd like to change the flowers, anyway, but I don't want them to lose their look from dampness. The waterproofer is an easy fix though.
