Take One Old Bicycle Wheel…

October 14th, 2010 4 comments

Have an old bicycle wheel sitting around?

Maybe it’s one you’ve done a lot of miles on, or just a wheel being thrown out at your local bike shop. Make it into a funky wall decoration!

All you have to do is clean it up and mount it to the wall. Then you can put postcards, photos, mail… anything that takes your fancy between the spokes.

It’s very satisfying to spin when you walk by in the morning. A few days after putting it up, I still can’t resist spinning the wheel when I walk through our hallway. We’re going to put bike photos around it as well, for a whole wall of bicycle-filled fun.

    Hi there! Any chance for a short tutorial on how to mount the wheel to the wall? I (and I think many others) would love to see one :)
