  1. Cut (2) 16” x 16” squares from different colors of cardstock. Adhere them together, textured side out. Adhere the doilies to one side.
  2. Using the template cut from each corner into the center of the cardstock square, leaving the center uncut.
  3. Fold every other point into the center and adhere them in place.
  4. Adhere a button in the center of the pinwheel.
  5. Attach pinwheel to a dowel.
  6. Repeat as desired. 
  • If needed for step 3, rub the paper over the edge of a table to help it form smoother curves as it is folded in.
  • Use a solid and a print for the 2 sides of each pin wheel—this will eliminate the need for a set of doilies on one side of the project.
  • Try using double-sided cardstock to create the pinwheels; it will eliminate the need to use 2 sheets of paper for each pinwheel.
