Deck the walls with industrial gears!
A cool industrial gear, some fresh greens, left over ribbon/holiday decorations, and some floral wire are the players here.
Here is how the gear looks on my wall every day. Simple and eye catching
After taking my stroll to clip greens I created an 8 inch wreath to fit in the center of the gear. No need to use a wreath form for this project. Yes!
After creating the wreath I added the embellishments.
Poof...youre done!
The gear is very heavy so I just tucked some of the branches behind the gear to hold the wreath in place.
I feel pretty, oh so pretty!
Im not sure if Lily really likes decorating or not. Hmmm...

I did not go to the store, not even my own to get any of the materials for this project. Dressing up what you already heve hung on your walls with what you already own is a time and cost efficient way to go. What I did do was take a little stroll down the trails is Lanesboro and clip a few fresh greens. Don't tell anyone.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
