Let’s get one thing out of the way right now: these aren’t the kind of pinwheels that spin around. These just look super cute.
Lay the Post-it® Notes down side by side (color side down). Join them together with tape.
Fold your paper into nice, even crinkles like an accordion.
Grab the two ends, and pull them together. Flip it over and tape the loose ends together.
The pinwheel will pop up on its own. Just smoosh it down flat when it does. To make the smoosh permanent, take a small dowel or toothpick and tape or glue it to the ridges in the back. Do this again with the second dowel creating an X shape.
Time for the pièce de résistance. You can use string to tie it to the pencil in back, or just glue it on. To make it extra fabulous take a colorful button and place it over the center of the pinwheel.And now you should have a lovely pinwheel to hang in your office or bedroom. Experiment with different patterns, colors, and paper textures. They all look great together!
