Patriotic Pinwheel Wreath

2 Materials
2 Hours
Today I'm going to share a patriotic wreath where I tried something a little different... I used Duck Tape to make pinwheels for it!

I've never made pinwheels from scratch before, but it was really easy! The Duck Tape is what adds the color to the pinwheels.
Here is what the wreath looks like when finished. I made three pinwheels in different sizes and hot glued them to a fabric wrapped wreath. I also added a little 'USA' bunting with additional Duck tape and foam letters.
For this wreath, you'll need:
  • Picture Frame (8x10 or any size you prefer)
  • Fabric
  • Duck Tape
  • Ribbon
  • Paper Fasteners
  • Card Stock
  • Foam Letters
  • Hot Glue Gun
Cut your fabric in 2" strips. Using a hot glue gun, wrap them around the frame until the entire frame is covered. I used two different kinds of fabric for this to make it a little more interesting.
Cut a square out of your card stock. I did three different sized squares, a 5", 4" and 3" square. Cover both sides with Duck Tape. I did blue on one side and pink on the other.
Cut slits at an angle into your square on each side 3/4 of the way in.
Then fold one edge in on each side and secure with a paper fastener. You can use a knife or a hole puncher to make a hole before securing with the paper fastener.
For the USA banner, I took another piece of card stock and drew out a banner design, cut it out and then used it as a template to trace out the two other banner designs. Cover one side with Duck Tape and then cut them out.
Place one foam letter on each banner shape. Hot glue to your ribbon and you're done!
This is a easy and fun wreath to hang on the door for the upcoming 4th of July Holiday!
