Bicycle Rim Winter Wreath
I know the thought of winter coming is not a pleasant one for a lot of people , me included but here in Canada we've already celebrated thanksgiving and have had a little taste of winter. So its time to think about decorating for the season. I love using old bicycle rims in my décor inside and out so when asked to make a wreath for a silent auction I knew what I was going to use.
First step was to spray paint my rim. I used brushed metallic nickel.
While waiting for the rim to dry I gathered the rest of my supplies. two boughs, a metal plaque, 2 cardinals, small piece of garland, and battery powered mini clear lights.
I cut the long stems off of the boughs, placing them at the top and using wire to attach them.
Using epoxy glue I attached the metal plaque. I used quick drying purchased from the dollar store.
I sprayed my piece of garland with some fake snow to match my boughs and attached it to the bottom of the rim, glued my two cardinals where I wanted them and added the mini lights into the boughs at the top. They are on a timer so will come on by themselves at night.
Voila ! My finished wreath.
