Fan Blade Sunflower Pinwheel

I made this Sunflower pinwheel out of the plastic blade from a broken box fan, a bicycle pedal, a steel rod and scrap of plywood. The fan/flower is just pressed on to the bolt/axle of the bicycle pedal which is connected to the rod. The flower spins when the wind is the right direction. I should have taken the time to make the flower pivot on the rod also but didn't. Maybe sometime I will. The leaves are one piece cut out of thin plywood and attached to the rod with zip-ties.
