A Rusty Wreath.....

Hello friends!!
I  was super excited about this "wreath" I made today!
I spotted this old farm piece in a antique shop this summer.
Loved the patina and knew it could be something cool.
Today I finally got inspired and made it into a wreath.
Couldn't have been an easier project:
Step 1: Buy super cool rusty piece even though it will sit in the garage for 6 months
Step 2: Head out to garage while you are already late getting to your shop
to gather items you need for customers that day. Spy rusty piece sitting there.
Step 3: Finally get in the car to leave for shop when INSPIRATION STRIKES!
Step 4: Get back out of the car and grab rusty piece!
Step 6: Get to the shop, unload rusty piece, push everything on the counter that WAS your priority for the day to the side so you can have room to create!
Step 7: Grab ribbon and greenery and put on rusty piece even though you haven't finished turning on all your lights, flipping your open sign, or unlocking doors.
Step 8: Take photos and begin the social networking blitz!
Step 9: See if you have any "likes!!!" (you gotta look right??!!) wink wink!
Step 10: Finish opening your shop
It's that easy!! Proof positive that not all Christmas wreaths need to be green pine...
they can be "green" in other ways!!!

I love it! And to think my son throws stuff like that away and sells it for scrap. I still have a few buried treasures I will make a wreath with.

Lovely wreath and always love your booth. I've been making them from old baby carriage wheels. See you in January.

This isn't a piece of farm machinery. It was a vent that went around an old stove pipe on the second floor of a home. It opened and closed to let heat go upstairs. I have one from my Grandma's house.


is it for sale?
