D.I.Y: Pinwheel Love
A thin dowel or skewer, cut to the desired length and painted
Two coordinating sheets of origami or lightweight paper
Spray mount glue
1 Cut a square of paper from each sheet in the size you’d like your pinwheel to be. Spray glue the two squares together.
2 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.
5 Insert a map pin into the hole (the hole will be slightly larger from the pushpin, which allows the pinwheel to spin).
6 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.)
