How to make a wreath from an old bike wheel

Do you love DIY projects that take something old and useless and turn it into something beautiful? Personally, I can never get enough of upcycling projects, and this old bike wheel wreath is one of my favorites.
It's unique, and it couldn't be easier to make. All you need is an old bicycle wheel, rope and a few pretty faux flowers and accents such as small gears. Ready to learn how to make your own? Check out the video and the instructions below.
- Bike wheel
- Thick rope
- Wire
- Faux flowers
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
- Tiny metal gears
- Twine
1. Attach the end of the rope to the wheel with a piece of wire, and tightly wind the rope around the wheel until you've covered a section slightly longer than your hand.
2. Fasten the other end of the rope to the wheel with another piece of wire.
3. Trim off any excess stems from the faux flowers with the wire cutters and fasten the flowers to the wheel with wire.
4. Hot glue tiny metal gears to the wheel on the other side of the rope.
5. Tie a piece of twine around the top of the wreath in a loop and hang it up for everyone to see.
