Easter Pinwheels

 A few weeks a go I saw this project on Denise Hill's blog, Paper Pastime.  Denise created an SVG file for the pinwheels created by Heather Bailey.  I was instantly smitten and knew I wanted to make these.  I created eight of these babies to hand out during our annual neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt.  I think the Dads over sized boys have more fun hiding the eggs than our kids have finding them.  They actually hid over 200 this year and in the most incredible places. I'm not sure the kids found them all!

Anyway, here are pictures of the pinwheels.  It takes a bit of time to get the assembly down, but once I figured it out I was golden.  I love that you can add so many different papers and come up with totally different looks.  Please bear with me - I have a lot of pictures to share with you.  These pinwheels are difficult to photograph together and they each have so much detail I really want to share each and every one. 


After the hunt was over, I had the girls pose for a picture with their pinwheels.  They were all really excited to receive one and I hope they enjoy them. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

  4. The pinwheels are divine! I love all the different looks/fabrics. Its like a multi-colored bouquet.

  5. They really can take on very different looks depending on which paper you use. Of course now I'm thinking about the Fourth of July, Halloween, and Christmas too, lol.
