We recently had to do something with our overgrown fitzers on the corner of our front yard. We hired someone to bonsai them for us...unfortunately, we lost the one in the middle. What to do now??? Well I love bicycle wheels and the thought came to mind that I could make giant flowers out of them. So I explained my idea to hubby, Ron, who put the mechanics to the idea and this is what we did.
So many people have stopped to take pictures and comment that we decided to make some to sell. They are now available for purchase at Vandel Antiques in downtown old Littleton.
It was a neighbor who came by and said, "Hey! I like your steel magnolias!" So the credit for the names goes to him.
You can get them in many variations and colors. Red, white and blue ones were available for the Fourth of July and Americana decorators. We also make sunflowers, which have been very popular. If you, don't see what color you have in mind, just tell Vandel's the color and size you want and we can make it special just for you.
