Barbed Wire Wreath

When we bought our farm, it had been fairly neglected. A previous owner had fenced off various pastures but when we got it, a lot of the barbed wire was on the ground. Not very safe! Needless to say, Bruce spent quite a bit of time rolling up and removing it.

Of course, I "rescued" one of the bundles of barbed wire. I knew it would make a really cool, rustic wreath! I stashed it in the barn until I figured out exactly what I wanted to do.

Then on one of my Canton shopping trips, I found this large wood and iron star. I immediately thought it would be the perfect accent for my barbed wire. (love the red!)

Sure enough, it was. I wired it on and then had Bruce hang it on the fence. Love it! It will go on our new entry gate when it gets installed...

For now we will enjoy seeing it as we come and go from the back yard.

Now for the other piece of barbed wire....
