Summer Pinwheel and Burlap Wreath

I think pinwheels are so cute and fun for the summer!  Several weeks ago while making my flag wreath, I also put this little pinwheel wreath together.
Since it’s made using the scrapbook paper of your choice, it’s a very versatile project.  And I made fairly easy by using “flat pinwheels.”  Hope you enjoy this tutorial.

What You Need:
1 Embroidery Hoop (mine is 12 inches)
Scrapbook Paper
Burlap (or your choice of material)
Hot Glue Gun
Glue stick
Ribbon

Tutorial:
1.  Choose some coordinating scrapbook papers (preferably with designs on both sides).  I used 3 different sheets for mine, but you could use more or less.  Cut your paper into 5 inch squares.  You’ll need about six for a 12 inch wreath.  (By the way, the paper that I used came out of a kit from Scrapbook Circle which I actually won last year through a blog giveaway. Yay!)
2.  Using scissors, cut your paper starting and the corner, and cutting toward the center, stopping about 1/2 an inch from the center.  Do this at each corner.  Next you need to fold one of the corners over, folding flat toward the center, and repeat with the remaining corners. Use glue stick so that pinwheel shape stays in place. (Or if you don’t want flat pinwheels, you can fold them over without folding flat and secure the pinwheel with a brad.)
3.  Next cover your embroidery hoop with burlap or your choice of fabric.  Use the hot glue gun to secure your fabric to the hoop.
4.  Now use your glue stick to attach the pinwheels to the wreath.
5.  Finally add some ribbon for hanging, and you’re done!

    Pinwheels are so cute and playful, and they remind me of my childhood. I remember every summer getting a new one and watching it twirl in the wind. Your wreath reminds me of those days!
