Toilet Paper Tube Pinwheel Toy Craft 2



Here is another toilet paper roll pinwheel toy craft from a Japanese website. The cardboard has a perfect curved shape to make a pinwheel. Visit the site below for a full picture tutorial, sorry in Japanese.

Materials:

  • toilet paper tube
  • scissors
  • glue
  • bendable rinking straw
  • toothpick
  • small piece of Styrofoam
  • pushpin

Directions:

  1. Cut the toilet paper tube in half lengthwise.
  2. Cut each piece in half again along the natural at a slight angle. Each blade should be 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch wide.
  3. Glue your blades together and poke a hole in the center with a pushpin.
  4. Decorate the blades however you like.
  5. Bend the top of a drinking straw and push a toothpick into the short end and pierce the back of the curved part. This will be the axle.
  6. Stick the pinwheel on the front of the toothpick.
  7. Add a tiny piece of Styrofoam in front of the pinwheel to keep it in place.
  8. Cut a 1/2 inch piece of straw. Make 2 holes through the middle with a pushpin and stick onto the back of the toothpick to keep it in place.
