Make a Spring Pinwheel Door Hanging!

I am kind of ashamed to admit that until yesterday I still had my St.Patrick’s Day wreath on my front door.

I didn’t even get my Washi Tape Egg Wreath out this year.

So I figured it was time to get myself in gear for Spring!! Even though it snowed almost all day yesterday. This is what my front yard looked like:

I was also looking to make something a little different. So I thought it might be fun to make an Initial Wreath.

I found the giant “H” at Hobby Lobby.

Here’s what else I used to create this door hanging:

pinwheel on silhouette

  • Giant H from Hobby Lobby
  • 1 yard of muslin fabric, cut into 3 inch wide strips
  • paper for pinwheel and bunting
  • 3 coordinating ribbons
  • 3″ x 1.5″ piece of wood trim for “Welcome” plaque
  • 1 striped straw
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Baker’s Twine
  • A 3-inch by 1.5-inch piece of wood
  • Silhouette vinyl and machine

the paper pinwheel

Here’s what I did:

  • I tore the fabric into 14 three-inch wide strips of fabric. 
  • Then I wound them around the letter. I started at the bottom and wound them around each section until the whole letter was covered. I used a glue gun to hold the fabric to the wood letter.
  • Then I cut the pinwheel using my Silhouette.
  • I also cut out the pennant bunting, using two different colors of paper.
  • I put the pinwheel together.
  • Then I hot glued the striped straw to the bottom of the wreath.
  • I attached the pinwheel to the top of the striped straw with hot glue
  • I punched holes in each side of each of the pennants and then strung baker’s twine through the holes, connecting all of the pennants together.
  • Then I hot glued one end of the baker’s twine to the top of the letter and hung the pennants together and secured the other end to the far-side fo the letter. I tied bows at each end of the baker’s twine.
  • The I tied some coordinating ribbon and hot glued it to the striped straw. underneath the pinwheel.
  • I printed out the word “WELCOME” with my Silhouette machine on vinyl and smoothed it onto a piece of wood trim. Then I hot glued it onto the enter of the ribbon under the pinwheel.
  • The last thing I did was I glue two pieces of ribbon to the back of the letter so I could hang the letter on my door.

  1. Looks great! Do you happen to know the color of the bench?

  2. This is just adorable! I love any reason to buy a letter, I may just have to go out an get one now! Your front porch/entry way is so bright and cheerful!

  3. Love the pinwheel….Hate the snow! We are in the same boat with the weather, but it should hit 60 this weekend. Woohooo!

  4. First of all, this is darling. But, most importantly, I am SO HAPPY to hear that I’m not the only one who can’t get my act together to switch out holiday decorations. :)

  5. I love your rug. Where did you get it? Is it an indoor outdoor rug?

  6. How big is your letter? I bought a letter from Michael’s yesterday, and it doesn’t seem big enough, especially to string the little banner across, my letter is “J”, not as good as the “H” lol. Mine is about 12 1/2 inches tall. I guess I could string the banner at the bottom.

  7. Love your whole entry! The bright springy colors are perfect! My door has a barbed wire wreath that we received for our wedding almost two years ago… Maybe it’s time for something new for spring!!!

  8. It’s gorgeous! I love it :)

  9. I absolutely LOVE it Jen. Like everything you make it is stunning and adorable at the same time. Love the outdoor cushions too….I’ve been seriously eyeing up that faux bois. Thanks for sharing the tutorial! A Monogram is such a fun idea for the door!

  17. I just made a monogram moss wreath last week and was looking for something springy to add to it! Pinwheels would be SO cute!!

  18. This is so cute – on my door I do not have anything. Just took down the Easter wreath and still deciding what I want on the door.

  19. This is beyond adorable!! I love the colors too! Definitely re-pinning!

  20. This could not be any cuter! Love it, you’re so creative, can I have just a little of your talent?! :)
