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!

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