This year I thought of making my 4th of July celebration complete with these adorable windmill table decorations using g.c.d. papers and embellishments. Here is a template and tutorial on how to make your own festive windmills.
4th of July Windmills
(Windmill squares can be any size but must be perfectly square. My windmills are 6x6.)
1. Supplies needed: 6x6 square piece of patterned paper, a sharp exacto knife, and a ruler, wooden dowel, glue dots, large brads, and ribbon.
2. Cut from each of the four corners using your template and ruler 31/2 inches from tip to center.
3. Fold over your corners. Do not crease.
Adhere each corner tip to the center of your square with a glue dot.
4. Pin down all your corners with a large brad. I used a g.c.d.'s large sparkly red brad and also their large glittery red brad. Your windmill is now finished. Just adhere the windmill to a wooden dowel and embellish with ribbon.
Thanks for all your sweet comments!
