Paper Arboretum Pinwheels Spin!

Paper Arboretum spins to the music of life! They can embellish your garden. They can celebrate your mother and father. They can grace the aisle-way on your wedding day. You can surprise people on their birthday, Valentine's Day and Christmas. They bring cheer to your desktop since they never need watering. They brighten up a hospital room and help you or a family honor the memory of loved ones. You can give a pinwheel – well, "just because"! I have been fortunate that I get to make art brings a little bit of joy to precious moments.

On walks in my neighborhood or other places I have traveled I take photos of flowers and leaves. Sometimes I find other images as well. I apply my artistic flair using my computer and turn real leaves and flower petals into surreal images in various custom shapes and sizes. My art is then sent to a printer and afterwards cut and hand assemble into pinwheels and floral arrangements.

Look to buy the pinwheels that delight you or are just the right one for those special someones in your life! Thank you for shopping on Paper Arboretum!
