How To Tuesday: Paper Pinwheel Mobile

Welcome to How To Tuesday, where I'll introduce you to some of my favorite DIY craft projects from all over the web. I have a folder bookmarked on my computer that's chock-full of fun DIY projects. I saved some of the ideas for inspiration and others because I just thought they were pretty or fun, and now I'm sharing them with you.


This week, I bring you paper pinwheels from The Sweetest Occasion. When Cyd posted this tutorial last week, I knew that I'd have to share it with you, because I actually made these for a mobile in Micah's room before she was born.

In true Leslie Ann fashion, I waited until the day before she was born to tackle the project, but thanks to some late night help from my mom, we got it done. Micah loves her mobile, and it's really cute when she stands underneath it in her bed and blows as hard as she can to make them turn.


See? Isn't it cute?

If you're looking for a cute and easy way to add a handmade touch to your baby's room, you must click through to read the instructions on how to make one of these mobiles. I used buttons and fishing twine to hold the pinwheels together, but I suggest using brads as the tutorial indicates. I'm sure they're much easier to manage. Since I waited so long to make the mobile, I just used the materials we had on hand to suspend the pinwheels, which happened to be a few dowels. It just goes to show that if you don't have all the materials listed, you can probably make it work with what you've got.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Sweetest Occasion and get started on some pinwheels!

Until next time, grace and peace.
