So pretty they'll make you dizzy, these patriotic whirligigs spin in the wind. They're tacked to clothespins so you can clip them to anything -- like a bicycle basket. Cut two 5-inch squares in different colors from patterned paper. Glue back-to-back; let dry. Draw diagonal lines from corner to corner. Make a 3-inch cut along each line. Fold every other point toward center; glue. Affix to clothespin with map tack.

This idea is from Martha's website.


  1. These pinwheels are so cute. Just today I received a Christmas crafts book in the mail and when I was looking through it, I noticed that they used pinwheels made from Christmas design scrapbooking paper, put them on a popsicle stick, and then tucked them under the ribbon on packages that were wrapped in brown craft paper. Really cute!!!
