I remember a long time ago, as a little kid, watching a special on I think it was the Disney Club TV show about how they did the sound for tinkerbell (Peter Pan), and it stuck with me - roughly 25 years later I did try it myself for a clip and it worked out great.
They used an upturned bicycle, spun the wheels by hand, and used a feather (or different bits of paper, card, foil, whatever), holding the tip of it into the spinning spokes.
Moving up and down to different parts of the spokes yields slightly different timbres, great for doing movement.
