Fabric Pinwheel Tutorial

I finally made the tutorial for the fabric pinwheels. Once you make one, you're going to want to make a million.

Let's get started!

1. Gather your supplies which include:
  • spray adhesive
  • fabric
  • paper
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • brad
  • wire (floral wire works fine)
  • wood skewer
2. Spray the back of your paper with spray adhesive. Be sure to cover surrounding areas to protect it from over spray. Spray adhesive is a nightmare to clean up so be sure to cover your area thoroughly.

3. Adhere the sticky side of your paper to the wrong side of your fabric.

4. Cut your fabric to desired size. It must be a square.

5. Cut an "x" in the paper from each corner. Stop each cut about 1/2" from center. Punch 1 hole in the center of the square and in the same corner of each cut section.

6. Gather each corner with a punched hole together placing your brad through them all to secure them to the back.

7. Attach your wooden skewer to the back by wrapping wire around the brad and skewer.

8. Admire your finished pinwheel and use it to decorate your next party!
