Patriotic Pinwheel Wreath

You'll need about a 1/3 a yard of fabric-cut into 2 inch wide strips.

 Then wrap the strips around a straw wreath form (I used stick pins to secure as I went along).
Then I cut out squares of various sizes and turned them into pinwheels and secured them on the wreath with a little hot glue and upholstery tacks.  Tadaa!

Todays photos are brought to you by Tropy Daughter, who thinks my photography skills stink and has decided to spend her summer taking and editing my pics.
