Hi everyone! I am Meegan from What Meegan Makes. I am happy to fill in for Kimber today. If you haven’t met her, you are missing out! She is just as kind and sweet as she is her on her blog.

Having over 20 grandbabies, I am always looking for a fun and simple craft they could make when they come to visit us.

I am exited to show you how to make your own DIY Vintage Book Page Pinwheel. It’s easy peasy and looks festive on any Summer table. AND, they REALLY work!

These little cuties are so fun to make. You can make them with your kids, grandkiddos or even the adults have fun making them as well.

I took a page out the same 1949 vintage dictionary that I used to make a July 4th Book Page Wreath. I cut a 4″ X 4″ square for my DIY Vintage Book Page Pinwheel.

I then cut into the square on all 4 corners. Be careful not to cut through to the next slit, or your pinwheel won’t work right.

I brought an opposite corner to the center of the square book page piece. Once 4 of the corners met in the center, I placed a straight pin in the center to hold all the corners together.

For my “stick I used red white and blue pencils. (I found them at Target, in the dollar section) I like using pencils because I can push the straight pin through the eraser. Thus making the DIY Vintage Book Page Pinwheel actually work.

Once the straight pin is through the eraser, I bend and push it down toward the pencil, so it won’t poke little fingers.

I made at least 10 pinwheels, because I had 10 pencils. But you could make as many as your heart desires.

I tried making bigger pinwheels, but the pages are too old to stay stiff to hold it’s shape. The smaller ones looked great and the grandkiddos had fun playing with them.

I gotta tell ya, the adults liked them as much as the kids. The DIY Vintage Book Page Pinwheels are fun in all colors as well as book pages.

Have fun making them as favors for your Summer guests or even July 4th guests.

I just love me some red, white and blue, don’t you??
