I’m in love with pinwheels. I have been since I was a little girl. When I was little you could buy a pinwheel for a dime. I loved the hours of fun running in the yard waving my pinwheel to see how fast it could spin. Or catching the wing just right and I would watch the colors spin so fast they became a blur.
There is no wonder when I look at photos of my granddaughter playing that those same days of carefree, simple fun come back to me. I had to make some pinwheels to add to this layout.

Cut a square any size
Create your center by folding both sides and pinching the middle
Cut from corner to 1/4 inch from the center
Fold every other side, bringing the top tip straight down to the center
You can light adhere the center and add a button or
circle, to punch a hole and
add a brad
