This is one of the posts that is so embarrassingly simple that we wonder if it should even be shared. How’s that for a sales pitch? Yeah, we are marketing geniuses!
Well, if you like crazy easy, this is for you.

There are hardly any supplies and no real techniques to making this barbed wire wreath so why share it?
The mission of this site is to help people create the life they want with what they have. We believe this wreath is a perfect example of just that.
We found a bunch of barbed wire. The Mister has been using it for different projects and had this bit of a circle left. It was already on it’s way to looking like a wreath anyways.
After adding some leftover burlap ribbon, and other ribbons, we had a FREE wreath.
No ribbon is thrown out here at Camp Salvage. We add them to this jar and use for tons of projects.
Now our backyard is not so naked.
Is this the most ah-mazing wreath ever? Probably not going to win an award, but we used only what we had to make the backyard just a little more enjoyable.
If you want to make a barbed wire wreath, here are some recommendations,
- Due to the barbs (is that what they are called?) it stays in a circle pretty easily. If you want to tie it together, jut use a little bit of thin wire.
- Ours was hung from the circle/wreath part. If you want a hanger, again used some thin wire or string or leftover ribbon.
- Use any décor that you want….flowers, rustic items, cowboy theme, etc.
- IMPORTANT – Don’t hang the barbed wire directly on a good door. It could scratch it. Either hang it slightly out, away from the door, or on a door that can take it (like our shed).
Even though this project is super easy, we hope to encourage you to make use of what you have to create the life you desire.
Look around, is there anything you see you could make into a wreath? An old hose, a scarf on a thrifted wreath, boots, etc. Let your imagination go! And if you make something, please post it on our Facebook Wall. We would love to see what you made.
