Iron Stop Animated Downy Woodpecker Wind Spinner
Iron Stop's Animated Downy Woodpecker Wind Spinner presents both whimsy and realism as it brightens indoor and outdoor spaces alike. The captivating fixture with its bold starburst-shaped frame, multiple cutouts and variegated color scheme of turquoise, sky and royal blue creates a fascinating display of color, motion and light.
Distinguished by its beautifully hand-sketched detailing, this
spinner's animated center scene features a lively woodpecker
perched on the branch of a weathered tree, which becomes a breathtaking three-dimensional spectacle when allowed to spin gently in the breeze. View in awe as the feathered fellow's head bobs in a pecking motion, while the clear blue sky in the distance dreamily sets off the pine branches that make up his forest home.
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.

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 10 inches in diameter and makes a thoughtful gift idea for friends and family.
