A few of you have requested a printable version of the paper pinwheels that were used for the Vintage Fourth of July celebration. . . so here they are! To make your own Fourth of July pinwheels, begin by downloading and printing the patterned papers. You can print onto either text weight paper or white card stock. Card stock will be a little heftier, so I prefer using it for paper decorations. I attached the paper pinwheels to a pencil with a push pin to allow the pinwheel to spin. Remember making these in grade school? I’m feeling nostalgic just thinking about it!
To add a little style to the pencils I wrapped them in a coordinating washi tape. So cute! Of course if you want to make these just for decoration, you can easily glue them onto a long skewer or dowel. Follow the step-by-step photo tutorial below to guide you through assembling this project. Have fun with this classic “old school” craft! Be sure to also check out our felt version of these cute pinwheels for your Fourth of July parties and barebcues.
