Patriotic Pinwheel Stand DIY

If you're new here, I post recycled Pirouline tin crafts every month! You can find them all here.

Today's project is a super simple one and will add the perfect patriotic touch to your porch! I recycled empty Pirouline Cookie tins into little stands for some pinwheels.

With only 2 steps, and a few $1 pinwheels from the store, these tins work up in no time!


  • Empty Pirouline Cookie Tins
  • Patriotic Duct Tape
  • Sand or Rocks
  • Pinwheels

1. Cover your tins in red,white and blue Duct Tape. This super easy, just wrap strips of tape around the tin until it's completely covered.

2. Fill the tins up with either sand or small rocks to weigh them down, and then stick in your pinwheels!

I have a secret love for pinwheels! I could also see this being fun for any holiday, not just the 4th of July!
