Rinea Patriotic Pinwheels with Roni Johnson

Here's a fun crafty idea to get the kids involved in for the upcoming 4th of July Holiday!

Rinea Patriotic Pinwheels with Roni Johnson

All you need are a few squares of Rinea Foiled Paper, straight pins, a couple of beads, and pencils. I am using the Rinea Patriotic Variety Pack but you can use any colors you like.

Step 1 - Wrap the pencil in a piece of foiled paper and set aside.

Step 2 - Draw an X on the backside of a 4x4" or 6x6" square. Draw a 1" circle in the center.

Step 3 - Cut along the lines until you reach the circle in the center. You will now have 8 points.

Step 4 - Poke the straight pin into one of the points.

Step 5 - Continue to add every other point to the pin. You will quickly see the pinwheel take shape.

Step 6 - Once you have the 4 corners on the straight pin, push it through the center so the pin is now sticking out the back.

Step 7 (optional) - If you want the pinwheel to move, add two small beads to the straight pin. This will hold the pinwheel away from the pencil so it can move freely. You can skip this step if you don't want/need the pinwheels to move.

Step 8 - Push the pin into the pencil erasers making sure it doesn't come out the other side. If the pin is too long you can clip off the excess with a pair of side cutter pliers.

You of course can use any color combination you would like to create your pinwheels.
