D.I.Y: Pinwheel Love 

You’ll need:

A thin dowel or skewer, cut to the desired length and painted
Two coordinating sheets of origami or lightweight paper
Spray mount glue
Push pin
Map pin

Cut a square of paper from each sheet in the size you’d like your pinwheel to be. Spray glue the two squares together.
Fold the sheets in half diagonally, and then in half again. Unfold.
3 Cut along each crease two thirds of the way to the square’s centre, dividing each corner into two points.
4 Bring every other point to the centre so that the points overlap. Holding them in place, poke a pushpin through the centre and keeping points in place remove pin.
Insert a map pin into the hole (the hole will be slightly larger from the pushpin, which allows the pinwheel to spin).
Thread a small bead onto the pin behind the wheel and poke pin into dowel one and a half centimetres from the top. (Soak dowel in water to avoid splitting if necessary.)
