Fun With Junk: Bicycle Wheel Wreath
I got a creativity bee in my bonnet one day and decided it was time to finally do something with that bicycle wheel that had been loitering in the garage for waaayyyyyyy too long. You see, I only LOOK like a horder, eventually I get to the project the junk was intended for! Really, I DO!
In a fit of blessed resourcefulness, I prowled around in the garage and came up with: said bicycle wheel, a grapevine wreath, a rusty circular saw blade, a porcelain cabinet knob, a large metal washer, a bolt and nut, a rusty dog leash latch, some twine, some wire, and a pinecone from the backyard -- all free items. These things plus a very little bit of time and some magic fairy dust became this fun wreath! Which I LOVE!
Below is the magazine photo (Country Living, October 2007) of the wreath that insprired me. Actually, I like my wreath better. The one below is a creation by Junk Market girls Sue Whitney and Ki Nassauer. Have you seen their Junk Market Style books? They are a huge inspriation to me! But then, I'm a sucker for anyone who can do creative things with junk!
