I have always wanted to make a horseshoe wreath, but since I’m not a welder, I created a new way to make it.
I used #6 x 3/4″ pan head machine screws and nuts. I did enlarge a few holes on the drill press so the screws would fit.
These are large cast iron horseshoes. You could use steel horseshoes as well.
Getting the right screw is crucial and these fit perfectly.
I was so exited, I immediately wrapped red bandanas through the horseshoes.
I sprayed the horseshoes silver metallic and wove a pink bandana through the horseshoes, a blue one next to it and tied it in the back.
You’ve got to love this cowboy version! I sprayed one of our Western Cutouts silver and attached it with wire. I wrapped blue and red bandanas and tied them in the front.
Texas Horseshoe Wreath with Texas in Circle Cutout, blue and red bandanas, and Texas Barbed Wire Conchos. I added concho screw adapters to the conchos and screwed them into the holes. I painted the cutout to resemble the Texas flag.
This is with a plain burlap ribbon woven through the horseshoes and tied into a bow at the bottom. Looks like decoration for a wedding.
The possibilities are endless and these ideas will give you inspiration to create your own. It’s fun and easy!
