Make a pinwheelHow To make a Paper Pinwheel:

Step 1:

Take a square sheet of paper. It would be ideal to use a paper with different color on both the sides.

Step 2:

Fold the paper in halves and along its diagonal. Make creases and unfold.

Step 3:

Cut along the diagonal creases. Cut such that you stop an inch before the center point of the paper.

Step 4:

Lift a flap and bring it towards the center. Do this for each alternating flap.

Step 5:

Secure the flaps at the center using a bell pin or even better if you could use a board pin.

Step 6:

Now attach a straw at the back using the board pin.


The pinwheel can now be spun since it is secured well. This simple technique hardly takes a few minutes and is a fun craft as well as a cool party decor.
