It’s April! Can you believe it? I wanted to make something fun for summer to hang on our front door and I think this rainbow pinwheel wreath is just the ticket. It’s bright, cheerful and welcoming to all who grace our doorstep. I decided to use 21 different colors of VersaMagic ink to grace my rainbow but of course, any color theme would be perfect for this project. The complete color list can be found in the supply list below.
Time: 4 hours
Cut eight 5-inch squares, seven 4-inch squares, and six 3-inch squares from white cardstock.
Pencil in lines from corner to corner. Draw a 1-inch circle in the center of each square.
Punch a hole in each triangle near the corner as shown.
Sponge ink on the lined side of the cardstock. Only a portion of each triangle needs to be colored.
Flip the square over and stamp the desired pattern on each of the triangles. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until all of the squares have been inked.
Cut along the penciled lines from the tip to the edge of the circle. Fold each triangle over to the center, line up the holes and secure with a brad.
Repeat steps 7 & 8 until all squares have been turned into a pinwheel.
Cut out a wreath shape from chipboard.
Hot glue largest pinwheels to the wreath first, fill in blank areas with the medium and small pinwheels. A stack of foam board was used to elevate the smaller pinwheels above the larger ones.
