Aren't these the cutest Pinwheels? I gave these out at Karsyn's party. I used 1/8" dowels and the sticks you use to make rock candy (no I didn't eat a bunch of rock candy) I purchased them at a candy making wholesaler.
Cut out the paper template pieces, attach them together with a grommet on the front and back side. The hubby drilled a small hole in the top of the dowel (you can kind of see it above). Placed a bit of wood glue on the rock candy stick and pushed it into the hole after the paper pinwheel was threaded onto the rock candy stick.
Pinwheel in action.
