We’ve made it to Friday! Hooray. What do you have planned for the weekend? If you have a get-together or party planned, it’s not too late to create an adorable centerpiece for your table. This project was created by We R’s designer Ann Corbiere-Scott.

chalkboard pinwheels


Follow these simple instructions to create your own pinwheel.

  1. Find a flower pinwheel template (we found this template here). I wanted mine a bit smaller so I traced the inside of the pattern with a highlighter and cut along the inner most line. Cut two wheels per flower using double sided patterned paper. The 6×6″ paper pad works great for this.
  2. Stack 2 wheels making sure all of the spokes are going in the same direction, adhere both pieces together at the center. Bring each petal to the center of flower and adhere. Once all petals are adhered to center, cover the center with a punched circle from a coordinating patterned paper.
  3. Punch a hole with Crop-A-Dile, in center of flower,  insert a big coordinating brad  to hold everything together.  Adhere flower back to a bamboo skewer.
  4. Cut strips or shapes from Washi sheets and  embellish container. Place a piece of Styrofoam inside container and stick pointy end of each skewer into Styrofoam. Cover Styrofoam with crinkle cut gift bag filler. Tie an embossed tag with twill trim around container.

Supplies Used:

Crop-A-Dile, Chalkboard Collection (patterend paper, tag), brads

Have a wonderful weekend!
