This wreath is a must-make for the spring and summer months! Windmill decor is hot, hot, hot, so capitalize on this trend whether you make it for yourself to enjoy or make a few dozen and sell them at your next craft show.
What is it about windmill decor, y’all? Maybe it’s the whole farmhouse trend that’s going on, but people go NUTS for anything that has those galvanized blades! This windmill wreath is a really fun take on the entire windmill decor movement—can’t you just see it hanging on some white shiplap walls or a rustic wooden front door?
How to Make a Windmill Wreath
This windmill wreath takes a bit of time to put together but the end result is well worth it. This is one of my favorite windmill decor pieces we’ve ever done! What makes this project especially fun is how you can customize the florals, greenery, and even the ribbons to create a totally different look.
The video below will take you through how to make this fun wreath step by step. Make it alongside me—it takes an hour to put together and that’s with plenty of chit-chat and business talk happening, y’all!
- Take your windmill and overlap on one side of the grapevine wreath base. Use pipe cleaners to attach on each side. Now set this aside and get started on the bow
- Take the EZ Bow Maker and a 2.5" wired ribbon. Measure out a 16-inch tail and make an 8-inch loop on each side.
- Next, get your 4" ribbon and do the same a 16-inch tail and an 8-inch loop on each side.
- Now we're going to add out 1.5" ribbon. Make tail and then a slightly smaller loop on each side, then make a small loop to be the center button of your bow.
- Take a pipe cleaner and tie the bow off nice and tight.
- With the windmill at the top, we'll be putting our main design on the bottom part of the grapevine, so our windmill is going to stand out.
- Place the bow at the bottom of the grapevine base. Get it pulled in nice and tight.
- Trim the tails at the top of your bow. Wait to trim the tails at the bottom of your bow.
- Add some greenery spray on both sides of the bow. Use the hot glue gun to keep it in place.
- Add some sunflower spray on both side of the bow. Use the hot glue gun to keep it in place.
- Keep layering with the sunflower sprays to make it fuller. Build it out.
- Take another floral spray, and use the hot glue to attach it to the grapevine base and fill in the gaps.
- Now trim all the ribbon tails at an angle.
Wasn’t that fun? There are so many fun ways you can use windmill decor, but this is by far my favorite. Be sure to send us your photos if you make this one!
