Christmas PinWheel

This is one of the fun shapes that facinated me at a young age. It works so well as a Christmas Ornament made out of Craft Foam.

Finished Purple Side

Craft Supplies:

 

Cut pieces and String Beads

Cut two 5" squares in contrasting colours. Then cut 2 1/2" slits from each corner.

Mark a pin hole in the center of each square and on one side of each of the corner points.

Attach Beads to Ends of Fun Foam Pieces

Bring needle up from the center of the back of the first square.

Fold one side of each of the corners and stitch up from the back.

Thread a bead and then stitch back down through the same holes in the 5 layers of fun foam.

Finished Pink Side

Use the same thread to stitch through the center of the back of the second square, then through the corners of the second square.

To get the shown effect you need to stitch through the opposite corners of the second square.

If you notice, the PinWheel spirals in the opposite direction. This is accomplished by bending the other side of the corners on the second pinwheel.

Finished Green Side

I've added beads to all the points of the PinWheel in complementary colors.
