Pinwheel Banner

My stairs looked blah and needed something Spring-y to perk them up. What’s the Spring-iest thing I could think of? PINWHEELS! I love pinwheels. They remind me of childhood and soft winds and growing up in Indiana.

I started with these pretty double sided papers.

I’ve made pinwheels a couple of times on my blog. For a great tutorial on how I make my easy pinwheels, go here. I used a small hole punch instead of a floral pin to make the holes this time.

I added a pom pom to the center just for fun.

They’re attached to the railing with twine and clothespins. The stairs are so much happier now. Do your stairs get dressed up for Spring?

 

Have a Beautiful Weekend!

    Love the banner. Could you post a picture of your wall behind it there? It looks really cute.

    So cute! This would be a fun project with the kids too.

    Where did you get your small hole punch? I remember my mom having one when I was a kid, and I would like to get one myself.

    I made my boy a pinwheel mobile, but now that he’s not a baby, I am using your idea to use the pinwheels for a banner…thanks!

    I found your idea here from a little bit tipsy’s blog. I love this idea, and bookmarked it for next spring. However, I really, really want to see a picture of your wall up your staircase. Any chance you’d be willing to post or email to me? I’m curious about the letters too, are those the letters of the children in your family, or your last initial? I would love to mimic something like this on a smaller scale. I have the perfect wall! my blog is currently private because I’ve had some weirdos keeping tabs on my family, but if you’d like to take a look, let me know and I can add you. Thanks!
