Pinwheel party

I am a huge fan of do it yourself projects. Not only are they economical, they are fun and they allow for your creativity and personality to shine through.

Planning a wedding is difficult and having numerous DIY projects on hand can make it that more complicated and add a lot of unneeded stress, but with a little timing and planning, some help from family and the bridal party any task can be done.

Pinwheels are my absolutely favorite trend right now. It would be such a simple task for fellow helpers as well, ship them some paper that you love, they can make them and bring them to you on your wedding day!

A they are incredibly simple to make and depending on the paper you use can be incredibly inexpensive as well. Here is a small tutorial on how to make them:

Now that you know how to make them, I hope these pictures will inspire you to use them at your wedding. There are so many ways to incorporate them and so many different styles. I would suggest using scrap booking paper as their is much more variation, colours and textures. Your local dollar store should sell some sheets that will be between .50 and $1.00.

Let your imagination go wild:

Hanging pinwheels to anchor a table setting


Toppers for your cakes and cupcakes

Wall decorations

Backdrop for the alter

Ambiance and color!

Happy Planning!


  1. I love this! Folded paper can be much more dramatic than you would ever think! I like everything about this post. I think that they all seem to have a vintage-feel to them, which is lovely. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Glad you liked the post. I find these pinwheels so dreamy, I think it because of the "vintage" feel as well!

  3. I love the Pinwheels they would also be really cute made into a centerpeice for the kids table...

  4. Do you have a pattern for the bigger pinwheels that are hanging and in the altar backdrop pictures?
