3. Four-foot Metal Bladed DIY Windmill
Although this windmill is pretty high (four feet), you still arrange the plans to meet the space in a garden. To reduce cost, choose the sheet metal and it makes your windmill is real. The most important part knows how to trim the cut sheet metal properly and do forget to prepare tools along with materials and protective equipment. This is because the sheet metal might cut your skin due to its sharp points on the surface.

7. Windmill With Wooden Base
This wooden windmill will spend a little time but it often takes less than one week. You freely choose your loved colors. For me, I pick the white and the red one. Then, I paint and match it to my outdoor decoration. This is also a perfect way to save woods after completing other projects. Woods are precious in our world today and do not waste them!
Wooden base also helps us feel rustic and peaceful when walking around the garden. Some public parks also put some wooden pieces to decorate. Probably, rustic décor is suited to nature.
