steal that style: DIY pinwheels

One of the prettiest details from Cami and George's wedding, which we featured earlier this month, was the vintage map pinwheels. Pinwheels are very simple to make, all you need is a square piece of paper, some dowel rods and a pin.

Step 1. Cut your paper into a square. We like to use a scrap booking sheet as its already the right size, has a good contrasting design for the front and back and you end up with nice big pinwheels.
Step 2. Cut from the corners of the paper into the middle stopping about an inch away from the centre.
Step 3. Fold the corners into the centre of the square and fasten in place on a dowel rod with a pin or tack. Just make sure the pins or tacks are no longer than the thickness of the dowel you choose.

And that's all there is too it! Pretty simple. Watch out for our next post with a free template to download.
