Free SVG File – Sure Cuts A Lot – 05.03.10 – Deluxe Pinwheel

Pin It

Hey Everyone!  Today's free SVG is a Deluxe Pinwheel SVG Kit, based on a project by Heather Bailey.  Welcome Spring winds with these big festive beauties!  Decorate your house or porch, bring them to a baby shower, adorn a gift with one, create a centerpiece around one for a family picnic and take photos of people enjoying them!

Project Supplies:

  • Two pieces of double sided cardstock
  • 6" 18 gauge wire
  • Two 1/4" wooden beads
  • Wooden dowel, 3/8 or 1/4 wide ribbon, acrylic paint and 1/4 wide double-sided scrapping tape (or substitute a festive unsharpened pencil)
  • Three eyelets and eyelet setter (optional)
  • Button or bling (optional)


  • Cut coordinating double-sided cardstock to 8" wide by 9" high and cut both SVGs at 7" wide (Keep Proportions).  Then glue the two pinwheel shapes together in the center.  Overlap each pinwheel "petal" so that one is atop the next all the way around the pinwheel.  If you have an eyelet setter and eyelets, affix an eyelet through the center of the pinwheel.  Also put an eyelet through four consecutive petals and then through the other four petals.  You can skip the eyelets, but they make the pinwhel spin a little smoother and last longer.
  • Paint 18" long wooden dowel with coordinating acrylic paint.  Drill tiny hole through top, then wrap with 1/4 or 3/8 inch ribbon, affixing with double-sided scrapping tape (optional).  OR use a festive unsharpened pencil, skipping the dowel, drilling, paint and ribbon, instead poking the wire through the eraser.  (Guaranteed to not look as fun and fancy, however!)
  • Cut five-inches of approx 18 gauge wire, bending a half inch of it at 90 degrees.  Glue this half inch part between the two small circles, with the wire coming out of the hole in the one circle.  Glue layered smaller flowers and circle with a button or bling to this.  3D Zots or pop dots work nicely here too but are optional.
  • Thread a wooden bead on next, then your pinwheel, then another wooden bead, then your wooden dowel, leaving an extra quarter inch of wire between the bead and the dowel, so that the pinwheel can spin freely.  Wrap the extra wire tightly around the dowel.

Paper used: Isabelle Collection by Anna Griffin.
