Pinwheels - The Cutting Cafe

Everyone loves a party and what better way to celebrate.......with a party hat and pinwheels! This week at The Cutting Cafe we are working with pinwheels. This set comes with all sorts of shapes and sizes to play with and also some cute center printouts and little banner sentiments too.

I decided to make a party hat and embellish it with the pinwheels!

I cut a bunch of them about 1-inch and then placed them along the bottom of the hat. I added a circle printout and brad to the center of each one.

I made a bigger one and placed it on top of a scalloped circles and repeated the circle and brad theme!

I didn't have any pom poms that matched my colours so I made one out of bakers twine. I glued it to the top of my hat! It was the 'icing on the cake'..........get it?
