how to make pinwheel straws

May 24th | DIY

I love pinwheels! For Father’s Day this year, I thought it would be fun to use some pinwheel decor. Pinwheels stuck in the grass, made into cupcake toppers and even tied around paper straws.

Last year I did a tutorial on how to make pinwheels–they are so easy!

Once I create the pinwheel, I wrapped some bakers twine from underneath the brad in the center, and then around the straw. I tied it nice and tight–and it turned out so sweet!

┬áThese really dress up the table and make it feel like a celebration. And even more–they feel like summer! Serve cold, colorful soda and some BBQ and you’ve got yourself a party. Love it.
