Post-it Pinwheels

Easy and cute crafts are my favorite! I recently learned how to make pinwheels out of paper and I became obsessed. I thought it would be fun to put a cute creative twist on this super simple process.
Introducing: Post-It Pinwheels!
How fun are they?
They melt my teacher heart:) You can embellish gifts with them, stick them on pens or pencils, or decorate with them. The options are endless, really!

How to make Post-it Pinwheels! I can't believe how cute and easy this little DIY craft is!
Like I mentioned, paper pinwheels are super-duper simple to make. As you can see below, I whipped out 5 of these puppies in about 10 minutes. YES! Plus, I even got to use my lucky glue gun!

To get started, you will need:

  • Post-its
  • Diamond sticker embellishments
  • Scissors
  • Your lucky glue gun (don’t tell me I’m the only one…)

How to Make a Post-it Pinwheel! So CUTE!

I attached mine to some bright colored “teacher” pens. Teacher pens are what I used to use to correct work (which is code for drawing big stars and hearts on students’ worksheets). I think that post-it pinwheels would be a fun teacher gift!
