Horse Collar and Horseshoe Sunflower Wreath

Last Christmas I made a wreath out of an old, worn, leather horse collar .
I added a couple old horseshoes to it, some greenery and a burlap bow.
It really turned out nicely.
Feel free to take a peek at it here.
Recently, I found another horse collar at a flea market for a reasonable price,
so I brought it home.
I had a couple more old horse shoes and decided to make another wreath.
This one is perfect for Summer and will even work into the Fall.

I wired the horseshoes together and then into the wreath.
Notice the horseshoes are facing up.
I have made a few projects with horseshoes
and have designed them with the horseshoes facing down.
Boy did I get set straight on how it would affect my luck.
I'm not superstitious, but for those who are,
they are correct!
You can see those projects here, here and here.

I wired white sunflowers into the bottom of the horse collar

and added a burlap bow to the top.

Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers
and I love how they look on this equestrian wreath.

We currently have a large patch of sunflowers growing in our garden.
Here's a picture of a few of them that I  picked last week for our front porch.
Aren't they such cheerful flowers?

I think so.

So tell me, what is your favorite flower?
'til next time,
