Garden Hose Wreath

I have been wanting to make one of these for so long now.  For years I've been looking at several hunks of old garden hose hanging out in the shed.  But, like most projects I have filed away in my brain, I just never got 'round to it.

Today, finally, I got 'round tu'it!

I wanted to use old, weathered items to adorn my garden hose wreath.  So I gathered up a couple old, rusty garden tools out of my collection of old, rusty garden tools, and a pair of crusty dirt-stained canvas garden gloves I wasn't using anymore.  I wired everything to a small, twig swag thingy and then wired the whole shabang to the coiled garden hose.  

Something was missing, so I added a faux sunflower right to the middle.

This is just that kind of rustic junky stuff I like in my gardens.  I think gardens should be fun, whimsical with a few unexpected adornments here and there. 

My garden hose wreath will greet me every time I'm outside at my potting bench playing in the dirt.  

Ya know, my Mom's an avid gardener with lovely gardens in her yard.  I bet she might like one of these for Mother's Day . . .
