This yellow bike wheel wreath is the perfect pop of cheer that you need for your front door this season! This 20-minute simple project is unique and fun—it’s practically guaranteed to make you smile.
Hey, y’all. I get asked all the time if there’s a way to make wreath-making easy. The answer is simple – you’ve just got to practice! I’ve been making wreaths for years and I still practice and learn new techniques all the time.
That being said, every once in a while, you want an instant gratification project. This yellow bike wheel wreath is as close as you can get to that—it takes minimal supplies and about 20 minutes of your time.
DIY Yellow Bike Wheel Wreath
You can grab a bike wheel from Amazon new, or you can even find these at a thrift store or garage sale. When you see ’em, stock up, y’all. All you need to do is wipe them down and give them a coat or two of spray paint.
This is one of our quickest projects yet—it only takes 20 minutes for you to create alongside me as you watch the video! I had one vision in mind (I was going to add these fun flowers), but when I started making it, I decided I wanted to keep it a teeny bit more simple. I’m so happy with how it turned out.
