Home Decor Bicycle Wheel Creative Embellishments

Just in time to share another fun project I made with the score from the rummage sale, I scored an antique bicycle. I have been looking for one for a while. But it had to be the right price. I didn’t want to spend too much money because I new I was going to be tearing it apart. Ok, Adam was going to be tearing it apart. I new I wanted to the frame of the bike for my gardens. But the two tires I knew I was going to alter each of the wheels.

I made a short video of the creative process. I value your time and try and keep these short, I feel you can watch more videos if there are shorter verses one long video.

Using the home decor Welcome wood element, I started with the base colour, knowing I needed to layer the paint and put resist paste between the two layers. I did two coats of paint with the Teal Hue. After drying I added sporatic areas of resist paste before adding the white paint over.

Once dry, I heat set the wood piece and wipe away the area of the resist pastes. This gives it the vintage, distressed look.

I heat emboss the flourish 26 pieces, both sides and the ornate pieces in a different colour. I make a simple flower arrangement with pearls and flower swags and fill in with the flourish pieces though out. Weaving ribbon through the arrangement as well.

I hope you enjoy, I still have one more bicycle tire left to play with, Maybe keep your eyes open for that inspiration. Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy and be creative.
