Default what can i do to make my pinwheeles pop?

I've been doing really good with pinwheel bows for a while now and I've been trying all weekend to do a twisted boutique bow and I've mastered it with tiny bows but I can't get it with 1.5in ribbon to save my life so to use some new stuff I bought I made my traditional pinwheels but they just look so plain to me even though they are all done in a printed ribbon. So what are some things I can do to make them stand out a bit more? I wish I could show pics of what I've done but my daughter broke the usb internet stick so I'm stuck posting from my blackberry.

There is alot you can do to them to make them pop. Add some dress it up buttons to them, korker ribbon, padded appliques, tulle, bottle caps...Just to name a few. Just think outside the box and have fun with them! :-)

You could stack some pinwheels differrent sizes and use print ribbon and a matching solid ribbon.

I was going to suggest the same thing! I think pinwheels look great stacked, they're so fun to dress up.

One of my most popular bows are a pinwheel with a ribbon flower made out of 3/8 ribbon and put on it upside down...I will post a pic cuz I don't think that is making sense!

Those are really pretty - love the glitter tree! I've never stacked pinwheels, but I love them as a pair for pigtails!
