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!

  2. Hi Annie

    Your wreath is adorable!

    I stumbled across this post while googling for ideas for my bike-themed wedding (the fiance and I met at a bike shop). I'm curious—do you know what size of wreath you placed around this rim? Is it 18" or a smaller size?

  3. Does your site have a contact page? I'm having trouble locating it but, I'd
    like to send you an e-mail. I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

  8. It seems much more and more, older males from the late 20s
    towards the mid 40s are acquiring involved with females ranging from 16-20.

    Just inside a common social observation, both the women and males
    look to want these kinds of interactions, and it usually finishes in a quick time and it is emotionally detrimental.

  9. The two images from Smallville are very, uh.
    .. intriguing choices. Among them is heroic enough when he will

    .. with Lex. They are looking at PAPER. And none
    in the photos show him rocking the signature Red-Jacket-With-Blue-Shirt appear he was so
    popular for throughout the very first 8 seasons from the present (aka, the precursor to his super-jammies).
    I'd say maybe 50 of these super-images depend as this kind of, while the other individuals are somewhat bit lacking.
