Sometimes the simplest projects can turn out to be the coolest. And such is the case with these junk wheel Christmas wreaths!
Anything round can be a wreath. Which is especially handy when you’re a junker type. 🙂
Here are a few tips on whipping up these charming little fellas…
Wheels of choice.
A little mason jar / faux snow / battery operated tea light.
Clear spray sealer if you wish to pretty up your junk.
Spray snow if desired.
Wheels can be heavy so you’ll need some hefty twine and a good solid place to hang it.
For a little unexpected twist, a battery operated tea light was added to a mini mason jar with a bit of faux snow. These things stay lit for a LONG time! My son flicks one on each night allll night and it’s still going strong. Amazing.
I tied the jar to the hook with twine,
added spray snow and an evergreen spray, and called it done!
The evergreen branches are wired together with florist wire, then loosely tucked into place on the wheel without further attachment.
What are the chances of landing a chippy wheel in Christmas colours?
The ever curious Mr. Lake luckily lost interest quickly. He sure loved that little flickering light!
If you spritz metal wheels with a little spray sealer, they get a slightly glossy finish, making them reflect light in a really cool way. Kind of a nice touch to add to old junk at times, especially for Christmas!
They are too cute. I had so many places I could have used them, but ended up hanging them all in ONE place. My pictures aren’t quite ready, so you can catch them on my Holiday Home Tour December 10th!
Pretty quirky idea for a wreath, isn’t it? Did I finally go too far this round? 🙂
