Made from an old bed spring and drawer knob. Just a fun, little "SPRING" pick me up decoration!

Yes, I just cut the flower from 1" pine on the band saw. Then I took it to the belt sander and sanded the edges. Be-careful that you don't sand your knuckles!
I stapled it on to the wire bedspring. That was not an easy task, broke a few flowers before getting that down pat.
