Ready for a quick and easy idea for Halloween home decor? Do you remember making pinwheels in grade school? The After Dark collection of papers is perfect for making these fun little gems, and because the paper is double sided...they turn out irresistibly adorable.
I cut one block of paper 4" squared, snipped inwards toward the center from each corner, and then adhered one point from each triangle cut, to the center, forming a pinwheel. I repeated this with different patterned paper, cut into a 3" block, this way I could layer two different sizes of pinwheels, with 4 different patterns of paper showing.
After I attached my pinwheels to a decorative paper straw, I just slipped it right inside an empty wooden spool I had on hand. Then came the embellishing. I wrapped my spool in vintage trim and then adhered a cardstock label and chipboard bat.
I embellished my pinwheel using a die cut paper rosette and a few chipboard images, a puffy bat, and glitter Thickers. A perfect little addition to your Halloween decor, or a fun gift for a teacher or friend.
