Printable Pinwheels for Your Patriotic Holidays



Show your American pride this upcoming summer season with this Patriotic Pinwheel. It’s perfect for festivities or to decorate your flower pots and centerpieces.

Download the Printable Pinwheel PDF and print in color on white card-stock.

Cut out the pinwheel making sure to cut between the areas on the dotted line. It does not go all the way to the center, only half way.

Fold tips to center and fasten with a long pin through black dots.

The pinwheels can be attached to a pencil by pushing the pin into the pencil eraser. If you want a longer stick, place a cap pencil eraser on a 5/16″ dowel rod. They really spin well if you add a pony bead for spacing.

Place in your yard and

let it spin!
