How to Make a Pinwheel Garland

Hi Lovelies! With the Christmas and Party season approaching we thought you would like this lovely little DIY to create your very own Pinwheel Garland. You can make a fantastic display using these as a backdrop for photographs or a dessert table. You could even use tiny pin wheels placed on a plate for a table setting over the festive season. Here’s how to create a pin wheel garland:

You Will Need

  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Paper
  • Thin card discs

 

Step 1
Cut 2 strips of paper.  I have used two pieces that are 27cm x 67.5cm for this tutorial.

Step 2
Concertina the two strips, aim for folds that are around 1.5cm wide.

Step 3
Glue together the two strips into one log piece and then glue the two ends together to make a ring/tube of concertina.

Step 4
With the concertinaed ring/tube standing up right in front of you, gently flatten it into the middle.

Step 5
Glue a disk of thin card into the centre of each pinwheel.  Layer up different disc sizes and colours to coordinate with your event.

Step 6
Make as many pinwheels as you like! Then glue them to a length of ribbon.  Make sure you glue along the top edges of the pinwheels so that they will hang straight.

The finished garland can be used to add colour to an empty wall. Or, try adding them to the back of your chairs.

I have been making things since childhood. After studying Furniture and Product design at University, I worked for 10 years in design agencies as a retail display designer for a range of high end and high street brands. I found that the process of planning our wedding allowed me to combine a lot of my hobbies, passions and commercial experience and really get into the detail of 'project W'. I live with my husband in South East London in a flat packed with mid-century furniture and vintage finds. When I’m not crafting, freelancing or creating projects for B.LOVED we enjoy coffee, cake, travel and junk shops!
