Let’s grab your supplies, channel your inner artist, and let get crafting!

Step 1:

Grab your blue paint. Here i used the royal blue apple barrel paint. I painted 4 panels in the blue color.

These windmills come with a hook already attached on the backside. Make sure you have that set to the top before deciding the color lay out.

Step 2:

Next, i grabbed the bright red apple barrel paint and painted every other panel. Which ended up being 3 in total.

Step 3:

Take your White paint and finish painting the rest of the panels that are left on the windmill. Then i took that paint and painted the center circle.

Step 4:

We had this brushed metal black paint, which i thought would fit really well with the rustic look of the wire still showing on the windmill. I took this and paint the ‘USA’ cutout.

Take you hot glue gun and glued this onto the center circle.

Step 5:

Lastly, you will grab the 1 and 2 inch star cutouts. I let them plain to add more contrast to the piece, but feel free to paint white or even silver. I then placed them onto the blue panels. Once i got them laid out to my liking, i glued them in place with the hot glue gun.

Then it is set and ready to display for the holiday celebrations!
