Today I want to share a really simple DIY project with you that can be used in so many different ways! These adorable pinwheels can be made of any paper and buttons to match the style of your wedding. I love them on a place setting, chair, or napkin to add that fabulous something extra that will take your wedding design to the next level.

What you'll need
2. paper in your choice of color or pattern
*regular thickness - you do not want to use thicker card stock type paper. It won't work.
4. double sided tape
5. hot glue gun
Step 1: Cut paper into 2 strips of equal widths. The skinnier the strips, the smaller the pinwheel will be; the thicker the strips, the larger the pinwheel will be.
Step 2: Accordion fold the paper back and forth.
Step 3: Using double sided tape, connect the pieces end to end creating a circle of paper.
Step 4: Press circle down and outward into the general shape of a pinwheel.
Step 5: Using your hot glue gun, secure button in the center.
If your wedding or event has a more eclectic or southern style, use a mixture of papers and buttons....
Just one way these can be used....
