Summer decorating doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Use whimsical pinwheels to liven up any space with a fun, festive and inexpensive centerpiece.
The centerpiece I’ve created here only cost me $6 for everything. Paula had an old galvanized bucket laying around her house, so I cleaned it up and thought that it would great if I planted some variegated monkey grass in it. Then I “planted” some of these great pinwheels to add some color and most of all, fun!
You can really use any potted plant you already had at your house. Or just grab a glass vase, and let your colorful pinwheels be the flowers!
Other ideas for use:
Bridal shower party favors (use paper in the bride’s colors),
Inexpensive party decorations
Fun centerpiece inside colored bottles
Rainy day craft project for children
Making a Paper Pinwheel
1 piece of colorful paper (light to medium stock/scrapbooking type paper), cut into a perfect square of any size
1 dowel with one hole (big enough for the brad to thread through) drilled 1/2-inch from the end
