Hey y’all! I’m Kirsten from Sweet Tea & Saving Grace and I’m honored to be here today to meet all of Emily’s fabulous blog friends! Now that the weather is warming up in most parts of the country, it’s a good time to break out fun summer colors and decorate our homes. Today I want to show you home to make a cute Summer Pinwheel Wreath for your door!
I love pinwheels – they just scream “summer”, don’t you think?
For this fun wreath, I picked up a grapevine wreath from my local Michael’s and grabbed some burlap and two-sided scrapbook paper I already had on hand. If you can’t quite figure out how to make a pinwheel, here is a simple guide to help you out:
Basically, you start with a square and cut on the diagonal from all 4 corners almost to the center, but not quite. Then you just fold one corner of each triangle to the center and secure. Instant pinwheel!
For this wreath, I made pinwheels in various sizes. Cut your paper to 3″ – 8″ squares to get pinwheels similar to mine in the image above. I also adorned the centers of my pinwheels with either circles of paper or little rosettes.
To create the wreath, wrap a strip of burlap around part of the wreath loosely, then hot glue your pinwheels in place until you are satisfied with the arrangement.
I loved making groupings of the different sizes. Don’t they just make you happy?! 🙂
That’s it! It’s a simple way to add some fun summer color to your decor.
