Party Craft: Lemon Party Pinwheels and Free Printable

lemon birthday party decoration

When thinking about pretty summer party decorations, pinwheels always come to mind.  Something about daydreams of running with them on the beach or watching them blow in the breeze makes me think summer party.  So when I was designing a recent lemon birthday party for one of Little Bug’s friends, this lemon party pinwheel decoration made an easy craft to do together.  All our table needed was a bouquet of these sweet paper creations in a mason jar to instantly say summer!

You Will Need:

(or you can use a 5″ x 5″ square cutout of your favorite lemon inspired scrapbook paper)

Extra Long Pink Paper Straws

White Round Thumbtacks

3.  Using an 1/8″ round hole punch, punch a hole in the center of the pinwheel.  With the white side of the square facing you, carefully fold one corner into the center of the square. Fold the other three corners in order clockwise.
