Old Book Page Pinwheels

I loved this craft because it was so simple and rewarding- you probably already have all the things you need- paper (i used book pages), string (you could use twine, ribbon, etc.), hot glue, and if you want a cute button. Talk about a great gift idea! You can make these pinwheels as a wreath, put on top of your christmas present for some extra flair, use as ornaments or make a garland. This is a fun alternative to snowflakes too- just add some glitter!

Another cute option is to not do the buttons and do letters in center- spell “Love” or your Last name or something fun!
