A Way to Re-Use Old Wheels
If you love the idea of turning recyclable objects into something beautiful, then this is the project for you. In order to complete this particular project, you need to start by finding a wheel to decorate. Do you have an old bike lying around that you don't know what to do with? If not, you could ask friends and family if they have any wheels they are getting rid of. Once you find an old wheel that has reached the end of its usefulness, you can transform it into a decorative wreath! This is a pretty quick and easy do-it-yourself project, and the end product looks amazing.
- Begin by removing the rubber tire.
- Use a wire sponge to remove any rust.
- Use a surface primer to prime your wheel.
- Once dry, spray paint the wheel in the color of your choice.
- Finish by adorning the wheel with the decorations of your choice.
- Hang in a place you enjoy!
