Mini Pinwheel Bouquet

I’m that type of girl who would prefer an unconventional bouquet over flowers. I never had a green thumb, so I’d feel really bad when they die. Balloon bouquet. Fruit bouquet. Pencil bouquet. Until recently, I really had no appreciation for flowers. So, if you’re anything like me, here’s one bouquet that would certainly brighten up a room and is sure to last for weeks, months or longer.

You’ll need a variety of cardstock. I chose two variations of mint green, two variations of blush pink, and a standard eggshell.

I drew diagonal lines, marked the center, and made tiny x-marks

on the bottom right corner of each triangular section.

I punched a hole through the center, and on each x-mark.

From each corner, I cut about an inch along the diagonal lines.

I bought these round fasteners.
I remember using them when we made our own clocks in gradeschool.

I cut wire about 2 feet in length, and fold it in half.

I then twisted the wire, making sure to leave a loop up top.

Secure the pinwheel onto the wire using the loop to hold it in place.

Make the pinwheel stems in different lengths, to fill the vase much better.
