If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I LOVE the holidays. My favorite traditions include decorating the tree, drinking eggnog lattes and watching Love Actually on repeat. I always love this time of the year for crafting because nobody can judge you for covering everything with glitter!
So when our friends at PUBIC Bikes reached out about getting crafty with a bicycle wheel I was all in. These bicycle wheel wreaths are super easy to make and add such a unique touch to your holiday home. I created two different versions, one a more traditional style and one that's a little funky!
Step 1: Make some hot cocoa and start blasting All I Want For Christmas to get in the mood.
Step 2: Use a glue gun to attach the greenery. Warning: You will use a crap ton of glue sticks!
Step 3: Add some pretty little pinecones and berries to dress it up.
Step 4: Attach your bow. Mine came with wire on the back so I just wrapped that around the wheel.
Cute, huh? The reindeer approve.
For the next one, I wanted to try something a little edgier so I used gold leaf paint and some florals I picked up at the local craft store.
Step 1: Paint the wheel gold. I used quick dry spray paint so I wouldn't have to wait too long to start decorating.
Step 2: Lay out the greenery pieces and choose the shape you want to create. I ended up trimming a lot of pieces off mine since they were so bushy, but it's all personal preference.
Step 3: Attach the greenery with glue or wire. I found that the glue didn't stick quite as well after the wheel was painted so wire came in handy here.
Step 4: Hang your beautiful new wreath near your stockings with care!
I hope this inspires you to break out the glue gun and get crafty this holiday season. Enjoy!
