Flower Centerpiece

Give the season's inaugural picnic a boost of color with this fanciful centerpiece.

What You Need:

At the center of the pinwheels are letters that spell out "spring."
  • 6 wooden dowels
  • Paintbrush
  • Green crafts paint
  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
  • 6 1/2-inch screw posts
  • Plastic letters
  • Paper in contrasting patterns
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Spray adhesive or nonwrinkling paper glue


1. To make the flower stems, paint dowels green. Hot-glue a post from a screw post to the top of each dowel. Glue colorful plastic letters to the screw heads.

2. Glue and cut out six 4-inch squares made from two contrasting papers. (Glue them together using spray adhesive or a nonwrinkling paper glue.) Assemble pinwheels, and use the screw heads to attach to the dowels.
