DIY Paper Pinwheel Summer Wreath

This weekend, I finally got around to adding some summer flair to our front door and I am in love with the colors!  Today I want to show you how simple it is to make a Paper Pinwheel Summer Wreath for yourself!

Would you believe I didn’t spend a penny to make this wreath?  I used supplies I had on hand, so be sure to shop your stash when you craft.  You never know what you might create!
Back in March, I made a Spring Wreath using this very same grapevine wreath.  Using some colorful scrapbook paper that I had on hand (all of which is from different editions of Becky Higgins Project Life), I transformed that wreath into a fun Paper Pinwheel Wreath perfect for summer!

#1 – Cut a square of scrapbook paper.
#2 – Cut towards center from all 4 corners
#3 – Fold left side of each corner in towards the middle; secure with glue dot.
#4 – Voila!  Pinwheel!  Decorate your center however you like.
I made several pinwheels in various sizes.
I wrapped a little strip of burlap around part of the grapevine wreath, then used my hot glue gun to attach the pinwheels.  I also added a little flair to a few of the pinwheels by adding glitter to the edges.
Here’s the finished wreath:

I’m in love!  It’s such a happy wreath!
How do you decorate your home for summer?
