Pinwheel Centerpiece

Doesn't everyone love a pinwheel? They are whimsical and take you back to those childhood days of huffing and puffing to make them spin. Ok, at least I think so : )
I made my pinwheels using some patterned paper cut into 6"x 6" squares, pearl push pins for the center, and grey stripe straws for the holder. I used a pop stick for my little pinwheel on the bottom.

I used a mason jar for my centerpiece and added a little lace trim, just for a little fancy!
This is a great centerpiece idea for a children's birthday party and the pinwheels can double as party favors. I love dual purpose party decor!

Here is a great little pinwheel tutorial from Four Winds Weddings Blog (click link name to go to page)

Happy Pinwheeling!


  1. These are adorable! I love what you did with the mason jar. It is simple. I just did a post on what you can do with mason jars. Be sure to check it out under the Pin-spiration Monday index.
