Hi Everyone!

This was so easy to make. Just use an old hose or buy a cheap one at a dollar store. I used floral wire to tie it together in a few places. I found easier when I made some other wreaths to cut the hose some so it is not too heavy to hang. Box cutters are great to trim the hose some. Then just add in flowers, birdhouses or seed packets, garden tools and even gardening gloves. I kept mine simple with just artificial vines and flowers. But last year, I wanted a pink hose for my shed so I just used a spray paint for plastic. It is so very simple and does't take but just 15 minutes to create.

She liked your pink idea, that is her favorite color. So happy to find a reuse idea for this old hose, hate to have had to throw it away! Posted: 11:09 am on June 7th
