Summer decorating doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Use whimsical pinwheels to liven up any space as a fun, festive and inexpensive centerpiece.
The centerpiece we’ve created here only cost a grand total of $6. Paula had an old galvanized bucket lying around her house, so we cleaned it up and thought that it would be great if we planted some variegated monkey grass in it. Then we “planted” some of these great pinwheels to add some color and, most of all, fun!
You can really use any potted plant you already have at your house, or just grab a glass vase, and let your colorful pinwheels be the flowers!
