Scrap Wood Windmill

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!

scrap wood project ideas

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.
