Felt Pinwheels {Gift Wrap Idea}

I've got a small little craft to share with you today, but one that I think is so sweet! I've had a piece of brown felt kicking around in my craft supplies for a few years now. The time had come to use it or get rid of it. I had recently made some paper pinwheels out of maps & thought I'd give it a shot with felt. I think they turned out so cute!

They are quite easy! Here's what I did:

  1. I started with the same template I used for my map pinwheels
  2. Cut them out
  3. Attach the ends with a button

This time I used them as a decoration (I almost said a garnish! ;)) on a brown paper package. 

Wouldn't they look cute in a bunch of different colours? I'm going to be making more now!
