For years, I've been wanting to make a Christmas wreath out of an old bike wheel, and I finally made it happen!
After looking at this site and this one for inspiration, I got to work. Hot Husband scavenged a wheel from my dearly departed Jamis. I thought I was going to take the tire off, but it really made the wreath look more full.
The greens came from the extras we cut off our too-tall Christmas tree, and I attached them using florist wire. The only tools I needed were a pair of wire cutters and a hand pruners to cut the branches.
I had visions of ornaments and other decorations on the wreath, but after I converted it to a peace sign, it seemed pretty much perfect just as it was. I'll be beefing up the greens that made the peace symbol today, though. Not bad for couple of hours of effort and a glass of homemade eggnog!
A few more bike wreath pics here. It's not too late!
