Paper pinwheels

I hope you are having a wonderful long weekend! I wanted to see something happy today and pulled out my old love for paper accordions to make a colorful bunch of pinwheels. They are bright and just the perfect way to lift any sort of winter blue.

Placed on top of a simple cake they look a bit like fireworks bursting into color. A nice touch for President’s Day or any other day in need of a little spark.

To make the paper pinwheels: Cut a colorful paper into 4-6 inch squares. Each pinwheel will take three squares. Use the accordion fold method to create small paper accordions, then fold each in half. Using a glue gun – connect three of the papers together and fan into place. Remove any excess glue and attach to a simple kitchen skewer to use for topping treats of all kinds.
