DIY Bed Spring Windmill Christmas Tree Topper

Don’t you love this rusty windmill topper?  To me, it is the frosting on the cake,  sitting on top of this beautiful farmhouse tree! I am smitten with how the vintage bed spring holds up the rusty windmill.  Plus, you won’t believe how easy it is to make!

This adorable bed spring windmill topper can also be used year round as well.  It not only looks cute at the top of a Christmas tree, but also, anywhere else in the house that needs a little farmhouse touch!

DIY Bed Spring Windmill Christmas Tree Topper Tutorial

 

Supplies:

  1. Old Bed Spring (found at antique stores, Etsy, garage sales, etc.)
  2. Eight-inch Windmill Blades Ornament (found in the ornament section at Hobby Lobby, but you can also find it online HERE)
  3. 20 gauge wire (found at the craft store)
  4. Needle nose pliers & wire cutters (my pliers have a built-in wire cutter)

Directions:

To attach the windmill to the bed spring, I twisted a little bit of wire around the wind mill at the top  and again and bottom of the bed spring.  You just need enough wire for everything to stay secure.

Now wasn’t that easy and cute as a button, don’t you agree?  Now it’s ready to top off the Christmas tree!

  8. This is such a neat idea! Love all the photos. They look so professional. Do you use a DSLR? Also I’m trying to figure out how to do videos like the one you have. What program do u use? Thanks for any help!!! 🙂

      Thank you Cindy! Yes I use a DSLR (Nikon 5600) which made a huge difference in the quality of my photos and videos. I also invested in a couple of cheap studio lights (tripods with lights and the white umbrellas)…this also made all the difference as they give me the perfect lighting to shoot at any time of day in my house or outside. For the movies I use Windows Movie Maker although I’m not sure if you can download it off the internet anymore (it’s considered the dinosaur of the movie editors). I just haven’t switched over yet LOL. There are so many free video editors out there that you can get off the internet. I’ve used VSDC Free Video Editor before, and it works just as well. Hope that helps!
