Holiday Horseshoes

I love dressing up Paco's old horseshoes to use as decor items! Goodness knows, we always have plenty laying around! LOL!!

This is a very easy project. I had Jerry clean up the used horseshoes for me to get rid of all the dirt and horse poop! I gathered up some fake holiday greenery and poinsettias from some tacky looking centerpieces that I had laying around, dug out the glue gun and put on my creative hat.

I think they turned out pretty nice! :)

I am linking this post up with Heidi's Virtual Christmas Ornament Swap. Be sure to stop by and check out all the neat ideas for handmade ornaments!

Nice idea! I don't have horse shoes but if I did that would be something fun to do. I'd put a horse shoe up rather then a wreath!

Hi Candy, If I had horses, I would try this! I love how your Christmas decoration project came out. Those red flowers on the silvery metal really is nice. Have a great Thursday tomorrow!

I love these! I don't have a horse so I'll just enjoy yours. Maybe my husband's old boots can be decorated up!

Love them! ....especially the one where the luck can't run out :-)

That'a beautiful homemade farm-made Christmas decoration!

Now if I could only make something with the goat's hoof trimmings......

I love this! I think I might have one old horseshoe around, and this would be perfect to make it beautiful!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! :)

If you can figure out how to dress up old work boots, let us know! LOL!!

Carolyn Renee,
That's too funny!

My daughter (my oldest) would love that hanging in her room. What a cute idea.

Carolyn Renee, my dogs love to gnaw on goat hoof trimmings. Gross, I know, but true!

I enjoy visiting here!
