Items you will need:
- Cardboard (I used a box from Amazon)
- Wood Sticks
- Aluminum Foil
- Duct Tape
- Rust Paint
I used an Amazon box and used each side of the box, than cut all the pieces about 12 inches long.
I covered each piece of card board with aluminum foil and hot glued in on.
Then covered my coffee lid with aluminum foil.
These little wood sticks were kind of tricky to get the aluminum foil to stay on, so I ended up hot gluing the foil on.
If haven’t tried this DIY Rust Paint you need to!! It is the best!
The first step was using the chunky dark paint. I brushed this on the sides where I thought something would naturally rust.
You’ll want to let the dark paint dry for about 30 min, and then brush the light paint over small areas of the top of it.
Doing the same to the wood sticks.
Once all the pieces of my windmill was dry I glued it all together.
Here is the end result friends. I love the way it turned out. I think it looks so cute!
