This paper pin wheel centerpiece is super fun and super easy to make. You will need square scrapbooking paper in patriotic colors (one sheet per pin wheel), pencils, thumb tacks, mason jars, and red, white and blue gumballs.
Make a diagonal cut at each corner of the paper, going towards the center. After all four cuts, your paper will appear to have four petals. Fold the tip of each petal to the center of the paper. Once all four tips are folded into the center, push your thumb tack through each tip and into the pencil’s eraser. Done!
Fill your mason jar with large gumballs, and place your pinwheel in the jar. Repeat. This is a centerpiece kids of all ages love! Check out my video if you want to see exactly how I did it.
