Understandably one of Iron Stop's most popular collections, the Designer Wind Spinner Series offers a delightful and alluring vision to behold. Each elegantly designed ornament features rich, vibrant colors in multiple shades that unite to create a cohesive and captivating effect. The wind spinners also sport uniquely shaped borders with smooth curves, blasts of slants and slopes, or innovative edging that further emphasis the overall theme of that particular spinner.
The true-to-life imagery and mesmerizing patterns found in the Designer wind spinners run the gamut when it comes to one-of-a-kind style. Some decorators may be drawn towards the colorful kaleidoscope-inspired splash spinners, while others to ocean-themed spinners like those with swimming dolphins or palm trees, or the sail boat and lighthouse spinners. Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers will surely appreciate the ornate detailing of the bass, howling wolf, hummingbird, butterfly, and charming dragonfly spinners. There's also a sun, flag, motorcycle, and tractor spinner--just to name a few others. From decorative to distinctive, the Designer series offers something for everyone
Dazzling Garden Decor - for Indoors or Out
The decorative wind spinner provides a dramatic addition to flower and vegetable beds, manicured lawns, and wildflower refuges. It also offers a delightful way to greet guests on the front porch, to offer sparkle near a swimming pool, or to add a splash of color to the patio--no matter the season. The wind spinner works well indoors too, bringing a charming touch of the outdoors to kitchens, living rooms, and reading nooks, or even a child's bedroom--the mesmerizing effect will spark interest and hold their attention. Sun-drenched during the day or twinkling in the moonlight, the wind spinner makes any space more spellbinding.
Placing the Wind Spinner
Whether you choose to use it indoors or out, you'll want to place your wind spinner someplace that is easily visible--a shepherd's staff in a garden, a hook on a trellis or the eaves of your porch, or near an inside window to best showcase intricate cutouts and a light-refractive finish.
Hanging the Wind Spinner
The wind spinner comes ready to hang from the box; simply fan it open and adjust the individual rings as needed for optimal movement. The included swivel hook allows it to twist and twirl in the breeze and ensures easy installation. You can use the swivel hook attachment alone or connected to an extension chain or an Iron Stop hook accessory to achieve just the right placement (additional accessories sold separately). Opening your wind spinner fully allows it to spin in the wind.
3 Easy Steps to Set Up Your Wind Spinner
Remove wind spinner from the box. Hold the wind spinner in both hands with your right hand at the top near the hook and left hand at the bottom.
Position your thumbs on the innermost ring just to the left of the center spine and push away from you. The wind spinner should fan open by itself.
Continue until there is about half an inch between each ring as pictured. Adjust individual rings as needed.
Note: Designer sun wind spinner (model BD315-10) shown above for illustration purposes (not included).
Weather-Resistant Powder-Coated Steel
Though delicate in appearance, the wind spinner is made of laser-cut 20-gauge steel for superior durability. It's painted with UV-protected ink and finished with a high-gloss, rust-resistant powder coating to help keep the spinner safe from the elements season after season.
Accessorizing with Wind Chimes and More
Add to your wind spinner by attaching accessories from Iron Stop's handsome indoor/outdoor collections. A spiral tail or wind chime (both sold separately) adds extra flair to your spinner. Iron Stop also offers battery- and solar-powered motors that create a continuous spinning action--perfect for use indoors or outside on a windless day. Top and bottom hanging holes allow the wind spinner to be hung from additional animated wind spinners to create a customized display. Each animated wind spinner offers a unique animation--from galloping horses, swimming dolphins, soaring eagles, and busy woodpeckers to dragonflies flying over lily pads, cardinals fluttering amongst cherry blossoms, and beautiful butterflies flapping their wings. Show off your love of horseback riding, your patriotic spirit, your love of nature--the collection offers something for everyone.
Made in the USA
Proudly made in the USA, the wind spinner measures 6.5 inches in diameter and makes a thoughtful gift idea for friends and family.

This cross has a special meaning for me. Four years ago I lost my sister unexpectedly. She loved the Lord and my mother and I felt this was perfect for her graveside. I have since bought one for my garden and will be giving it as a gift to my mother this Christmas.

A: All of Iron Stop's wind spinners are proudly made in the USA.
Q: Will my wind spinner fade if I leave it outside?
A: Iron Stop spinners utilize state-of-the-art FujiFilm ink that includes UV protection to maintain its brilliance longer.
Q: Is this the same wind spinner others offer?
A: No, this is a one-of-a-kind, exclusive copyrighted design available only from Iron Stop.
Q: What if there isn't any wind? How will my wind spinner work?
A: You can purchase an Iron Stop battery- or solar-powered motor that automatically spins your wind spinner for you.
Q: What type of metal is used to make the spinners?
A: The wind spinners are made of heavy, 20 gauge, cold rolled steel.
Q: Does the gloss coating offer any special ingredients or protection?
A: The gloss coating on Iron Stop's wind spinners is an enamel powder coat. The powder is sprayed on and then the products are run through an oven that melts the powder into the gloss coat. It effectively seals the steel to make it rust resistant. The powder coat used also contains glitter to make the products sparkle even more in the light.
Q: What is the process when beginning a new design?
A: Iron Stop's wind spinners are hand-sketched, copyrighted, one-of-a-kind designs. They start the old-fashioned way with a pencil and paper. The design is sketched on paper to get a rough idea of what they want designed and how the piece will look. Once they get the basic shape figured out they scan the sketch and redraw it on the computer using special software. Once it is where they want it they send the file to a laser programmer to have a sample made. After they get the sample back and make any necessary adjustments they then proceed to designing the graphics.
