There isn’t any type of crafting much better than scrap wood craftin. I get the best feeling when I can got grab a few pieces from the wood pile and make something from scratch. This little scrap wood windmill is a prime example of what you can make when you have a good source of scrap wood!

This scrap wood windmill project started with a large chunk that served as the background. I layered up some stain and crimson red chalk paint for a rustic barn wood look.
For the base of the windmill, I grabbed some shims, ok maybe I cheated a little and it’s not exactly scrap wood but it definitely COULD be from the scrap pile! I painted them and created a faux rusty finish using cinnamon and mod podge! You can see a more in depth tutorial for the faux rusting technique on this heart project.
The assembly of the windmill was the easiest part of this entire project. The shims were thin enough on one end to trim with a pair of scissors and secure with a bit of hot glue. The triangles from this pack is available in the shoppe for those wanting to make their own scrap wood windmill. We had plenty of these pieces left from out previous craft kit release that we decided to bundle them.
Next up came a little embellishing. Some scrap burlap fabric and stencils can be your best friend! I topped off this project with a scrappy bow and an American flag.
