DIY Spring Paper Daffodil Pinwheels

I've been in the mood to dress up my home for Spring, and I've been trying to think of a fun DIY craft that brings some of that spring season into my home, but is also fun to create. Introducing "Spring Paper Daffodil Pinwheels!" Just by using a few key craft items, you can easily make this project by yourself or with your kids. Be sure to pin this project for later!

To Create the Pinwheels:


1. Use a digital or manual pinwheel die to die cut pinwheels from white or yellow paper or cardstock.

5. To create the flower center, thread a black, gem brad through the center of the white flowers, the black punched circle, and ALL the holes in the pinwheel. Use your fingers to pinch up the petals of the top, white flower to create a 3d effect.

6. Pinch the ends of the top of a straw together. Use a tiny hole punch to punch a hole in the pinched part of the straw, about 1/4" from the top of the straw.
