If you love the idea of recycling objects to turn them into something beautiful - then this is the project for you. Maybe you have an old bike lying around and don't know what to do with it. You could also ask friends and family if they have any wheels they are getting rid of. You can transform the old wheels into a decorative wreath. It's a pretty quick and easy DIY and the end product looks amazing.
Make sure you wear gloves before starting the project to avoid a cut from a rusty spoke. Begin by removing the rubber tire and use a wire sponge to remove the rust.
The next step involves using a surface primer to prime your wheel. Once dry, you can then spray paint the wheel in the color of your choice. Finish by adorning the wheel with the decorations of your choice and then hang in a place you enjoy.
If you want a wreath that looks different - these wheel wreaths look adorable for Christmas. Spray paint your wheel in red and once dry you can hot glue items to complete the look. Layer up with garland, pine cones and snowmen. You are sure to be the envy of the neighborhood with such a creative and unique looking wreath.
