Garden Hose Wreath

I am amazed at what you can do with old garden hoses! Here is another project to make using a small garden hose of 25 to 50′ in length. Take a piece of hose including the nozzle end and roll it into a wreath shape, a size that will fit on your door.  Fasten it securely together with bark wire, a wire that is covered with a covering to look like bark. I get this at a craft store. Wind the ends around a pencil to mimic grapevine tendrils.

Then start adding your accessories. I used a trough, gardening gloves, a watering can, burlap, and a flower pot.  Attach firmly using the bark wire. I also made a loop on the back for hanging.

I finished it off with some burlap ribbon and wound some of the bark wire around the entire wreath. You are done! This will last for years.

This would also be fun using different colors of hoses, like yellow.
