Make a pinwheel out of wallpaper

Step 1. Glue the backs of the wallpaper pieces together.

Step 2. Fold the wallpaper diagonally into a triangle, fold up and do the same in the other direction. When you unfold the wallpaper, you should have a cross in the middle.

Step 3. Using scissors, cut each corner halfway to the center.

Step 4. Make a hole in the center and in every other tab formed in the paper.

Step 5. Use a piece of steel wire of about 10 cm and thread on a bead. Attach the bead by twirling the thread. The pearl will create distance between the wallpaper and the stick to give a good spin.

Step 6. Fold-down every other tab, the ones with holes in them, and hold all the tabs together with your hands

Step 7. Thread the steel wire through the holes in the tabs and through the hole in the middle.

Step 8. Thread a bead on the back, place the pin on top and wrap the steel wire around the pin.
Ready to go out in the wind and spin loose!

The collection fits perfectly in the kids’ rooms, but imagine how nice it would be to let the loveliness spill over to the rest of the home.
