The Inspired Notebook: Patriotic Pinwheels


Patriotic Pinwheels Project



How are you celebrating the 4th of July? We're having an homemade ice cream party before watching the fireworks over the river! 


Mix up the colors, patterns, and brads in your pinwheels - see how in this video



I added my pinwheels to a frog vase for easy display. You could even use a toothbrush holder to slip the straws into! Check out more Party Ideas with Pinwheels I shared at SEI Lifestyle.

I can't wait to see what you are creating this week! Please share a link with me to your project on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments below.

    1. Yes they are! I made these with my cousin's daughters. They added glitter stars to the center of the pinwheel before adding the brad.
