Like many neighborhoods in the San Antonio suburbs ours used to be a large ranch. Several old barbed wire fence remnants were still in place when we first moved here. A few years ago workers on a road construction project pulled out pieces of that old fencing and tossed them aside. I picked up a few lengths of barbed wire and wrapped them into rings to hang on the fence. Last week while looking for a wreath base I wired a couple of those rings together, added flag ribbon and sparkly stars to come up with a perfect door decoration for the Fourth of July holiday.
It's fun to have a wreath with a connection to our home. A barbed-wire wreath around a Texas star.
Happy Fourth of July!
(Wildlife Wednesday will return in August, those critters are anxious to show off!)
