How To Make Paper Pinwheels

Paper pinwheels are so easy to make and add a touch of simple elegance if used as a backdrop during photoshoots.

You will need

Sheets of coloured paper - doesn't have to be card, photocopying weight paper is fine.
Glue gun or strong paper glue

Step 1

For large pin wheels, fold your paper landscape, for small size, fold it portrait.

Fold your paper into a concertina - you do not have to be too accurate.
I had folds roughly 1 inch in size.

Step 2

Fold your concertina in half, and glue in the middle

Step 3

For a fuller pinwheel, make 5 "quarters".
I used 5 for the large size and only need 4 for the small size

Step 4

Glue your "quarters" together

Hang them by cotton from the ceiling, or stick to your backdrop.  Or if you really don't have the time, you could always order my backdrop where I've done all the hard work for you!
