Most people use these paper pinwheels as a wedding backdrop or in a mobile in a child’s room. I however am attempting to use them as grown up apartment home decor. So far, I really love them.
All You Need:
Scrapbook Paper or Any Other Fun Paper (2 12 x12 sheets or 3 8×11 for each wheel)
A box cutter, Xacto Knife, or really good sizors
A Stapeler or Good Glue like Rubber Cement
String or Long Pins to hang them
Hang them Up! I know a lot of people prefer stringing the wheels, but that seemed like extra work to me. I prefer to pin them where I like them. I used corsage pins so that the wheels stand away from the wall a little bit, which makes it easier to layer them.
This project is over all very easy, although a bit time consuming. I’m going to add many more, and try to find some old books that I can use pages from. I am having a great time with this project so far! All of the supplies have only cost me $32 all together (I didn’t have to buy staples or the box cutter though).
Let me know if you have any questions about this process. I’ll keep updating as I add to the wall. I am going to paint the console table under the mirror the same orange. YAY! So excited!
