My farrier neighbor gave me a dozen horseshoes last fall and I still have a few left.
I thought they would be perfect to incorporate into the barb wire wreaths.
I have made a few projects with some of the horseshoes already.
I had to wire brush and really clean the barb wire and the horseshoes,
they were super dirty and rusty.
After they were cleaned, I sprayed them with a clear matte protective sealer.
I wired the horseshoes to the bottom of the barb wire wreath and
added little white daisies, green sprays and a white burlap bow to the top.
Wouldn't this wreath be pretty for a rustic country wedding.
This one is available in my Etsy shop.
I have another barb wire wreath and two more horseshoes,
so I can make a matching one
or I could come up with a totally different design.
