Learn how to make a traditional origami pinwheel! You just need a pin and a straw if you’d like a moving pinwheel decoration!
These would make great party decorations as well as cute decor for a child’s bedroom! You could also stick them on pencils or make them into hair clips.
I used a black bamboo chopstick and a gold pushpin for the one with dark blue and gold paper, this paper comes with Nick Robinson’s Book ‘Traditional Japanese Origami’, which has a few good traditional models and lots of beautiful origami paper!
You could use duel toned paper, solid coloured paper or patterned paper, each would look really good!
You will need:
· 1 square piece of paper.
I used 15 x 15 cm
· A sharp pin
· A split pin
· A straw or chopstick.
