How to Make Paper Pinwheels

Pinwheel backdrop


How to Make Pinwheels teaches you how to make gorgeous, high quality Paper and Card pinwheel (or often called paper fans, rosettes and pleated wheels) decorations to use in your home, business, event or wedding.

Pinwheels are easily customisable and you can start from a blank bit of A3 paper.

I use the method that I've perfected over the years to create Pinwheels to sell to the public and share all my secret tips and tricks.

Pinwheels create a gorgeous wedding backdrop or artistic installation in your home.

Tools needed include:

Plus some other materials to make your pinwheels pro, and easy to put up on your wall.
