I’ve been wanting to construct a Christmas wreath out of an old bike wheel for a number of years, and this year I finally got around to doing it!
I went to work after getting ideas from these two websites, which you can check out here and here. I had planned to remove the tyre, but leaving it there gave the impression that there was more foliage around the wreath.
Best Christmas Gifts For Bikers
I used florist wire to secure the greens, which were from the additional branches that we removed from our Christmas tree since it was too tall. A set of wire cutters and a pair of hand pruners were the only instruments I need to make the cuts in the branches.
My original plan was to add ornaments and other decorations to the wreath, but as I turned it into a peace sign, I realised that it looked rather good even without any more embellishments. However, I will be increasing the size of the greens that were used to make the peace sign today. Not too shabby for a couple of hours of work and a cup of eggnog cooked from scratch!
Whenever I pull into my driveway, the wreath gives me a happy feeling and makes me grin. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and that the next year brings you nothing but joy and success.
