Patriotic Pinwheel Clips

I, like many of you, will be celebrating on the 4th of July with family and friends.
I found myself needing to make some decorations.
These are embarrassingly easy.
First I cut squares 4"x4".
Then I made 4 cuts from the corner almost to the center.
Then I glued the center to the middle, slapped on a star and glued the whole thing to a clothespin.
That's a "peg" for all my foreign friends.  LOL!
I love that.  Peg.  So cute.
 That's it!
You can clip these puppies to anything.  Everything!
Use them on the bottom of a table cloth to weigh it down.
Clip them to your lapel, your hair, the flower pot, the dog, the kids...
Seriously...anything.
I clipped them to the iron rails on the gazebo and around the top of the tent awning.
I clipped them to the cabinet handles.
I'm a clippin' fool!
Yep.  
You need to do this.
Linking to: Paper Issues, Be Different, Act Normal.
I used Pink Paislee Declaration and some random clothespins that I stole off bags of chips and cereal out of my cabinets. 
It'll be a nice surprise for the kids when they open up the boxes and see the festive pinwheels, don'tcha think?
