4th of July Windmills G.C.D. Style

My family's 4th of July traditions usually consist of a huge homemade pancake breakfast complete with fresh maple syrup and mixed berry salad, followed by a day spent with friends hanging out by the pool. Our 4th of July dinner is usually a barbecue with even some fried chicken mixed in their somewhere, oh and classic potato salad. YUM!! Finishing the night with a spectacular fireworks display.

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.

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.
