Creatives Tuesdays: DIY Pinwheel Table Runner

Ola sweets! We are still in a bit hecticness since prep for our sister portal. Anyways do check em' out at PeppiAve. Back to DIY Creatives, if you brides still sooo obsessed with all the great paper elements (like us), today we want to bring you something fun for your light & airy weddings! (Thanks to Green Wedding shoes for their sweeeet postings!) W absolutely just fall in love with these cascading pinwheel table runner pieces. They're such an awesome alternative to flowers on your tables, would be a great idea – that you can actually pick colors to match your wedding design. They can also be a fabulous backdrop for your ceremony  – just have to have em' all hang on the wall or ceiling! Such dramatic in a very fabulous way!

Now DIY brides, let's begin the creative session....

Supplies you need:
• 8.5 X 11 sheets of paper
• Scissors
• Double sided tape
• Cardstock
• Hot glue gun and sticks

Step One: Fold a piece of paper like an accordion. Your folds should be the length of the 8.5 in side. Sometimes we fold 2 at a time to speed the process along.
Step Two: For a medium sized pinwheel cut your piece of paper in half, and you will need four halfs.
Step Three: We like to make the ends of my pinwheels a little more polished, so we curved the edges of one side. You can also use a hole punch to punch each of the folds, and it gives a little more character to the look of the pinwheel.
Step Four: Take double sided tape and stick each of the ends together until you’ve made a full pinwheel circle.
Step Five: Cut a circle shape out of the card stock. To help the pinwheel keep it’s shape, use the circle as support on the back of the pinwheel. Use hot glue to hold it in place.

Step Six: Once you have a hearty collection of pinwheels, you can start organizing them on your table. We wanted to go for a more asymmetrical look on our table. We hot glued each of our pinwheels together to keep the shape we wanted. To create the cascade look we also hot glued the falling pinwheel to the ones on the table.

Just love the playfulness mixed with the over-dramatic of this table runner!!
