I saw this on Pinterest.. but cannot remember where.. I'm terrible.. I need a better system of keeping up with things. Organization for the new year.. that needs to be my focus!!
However, for now we are focusing on the holiday and Joshua and I wanted to make something for the bathroom, so we decided to make paper pinwheels.
The first thing we did is chose some paper and cut them into 3 inch strips.
Then, we took the strip and folded it back and forth like a accordian.
Then you take the strip and tape or hot glue one end to the other end, which makes something that looks like a paper lamp.
Then you flatten out the lamp so that the paper looks more like a circle pinwheel.
Then I used a paper punch to punch out a circle for the middle. Joshua and i decided what work we wanted to put on the decoration and I had some letter stickers in my stash that I added on.
I hot glued the centers on and then hot glued strings to the top because I wanted to hang them from some bulbs in the bathroom.
Then Joshua wanted to play with the punch, so we decided to make a paper garland to go along with our new sign. This was so easy to make and I think I will be using it througout the year for other holiday decorations. And the best part?? It was free to make! I had all the supplies in my home office.
Happy Holidays! and Joy to all!!
