Solstice Wreath

Fuzzy posted a photo of her Knobby Tire Christmas Wreath she made last year. I was too late and too busy to make one then, but since I have way too much time on my hands now what excuse did I have?

We don't celebrate Christmas so this is more a Solstice Tire Wreath made from a Shinko Dualsport Tire  off my Tiger.


All it needed was a little greenery, so I went out to the backyard and took a few cuttings from our Giant Sequoia, some holly and a couple sprigs of Escallonia and Ta Da!!

I'll post another photo tonight when it's lit up.


Addendum: I added a sprocket in the center...

  2. Well done. Leave it to the man to decorate for Christmas. Your hausfrau duties certainly become you ;-)

    1. Thank you, maybe I missed my calling of hausfrau, unfortunately it doesn't pay very well. It was a fun project.

    1. Ummmmm, thank you for the offer.... but no. I am having a difficult time getting rid of the half dozen tires or so I already have stacked in the yard. Buy some lights and start decorating Erik... fa la la la la, la la la la.

    1. I've made two wreaths, is it too soon to look into factory production and hiring staff?

  7. I am wreath envious! Alas I have no tires hanging around, maybe next year.

    1. You are a lucky girl, I can't get rid of my old tires fast enough and they begin to multiply outside the garage. You could check out your local bike shop, I'm sure they'd have some old tires kicking around they'd be happy to get rid of.
